We are service provider of Lightning Protection Design Service.
- Lightning is an atmospheric electrical discharge (spark) accompanied by thunder, produced by cumulonimbus clouds.
- During the discharge of atmospheric electricity, there is a leader of the bolt of lightning. The leader steps into many branches and can travel at a speed of 220,000 km/h, and it can reach a temperature of around 30,000℃.
- Most lightning strikes average 3200 to 4800 meters long, and carry a current of more than 10 kA at 100 million Volts.
- There are over 1.4 billion lightning flashes worldwide every year, and there are around 8,640,000 strikes a day on an average i.e. 100 strikes per second.
- Review the existing lightening protection system against national and international standards and correction and addition in the system to comply with various applicable standards for plant along with risk analysis.
- Study of maintenance aspects of lightening protection and suggest suitable corrective actions in existing system.
- Risk analysis reports with all as build drawings, reference standards applicable for plant
