SECTION 1 

1 Introduction
This document has been prepared for PUB (the Board) by CH2M Hill Singapore Pte Ltd.   
The purpose of this report is to assess and identify those areas within the Electro‐Chlorination at Chua Chu 
Kang  Waterworks  that  are  likely  to  have  hazardous  gases  from  Groups  IIA  and  IIB  as  defined  in  IEC 
(BS)/EN60079‐10:2003 and to give structures, buildings and sub‐structures a Hazardous Area designation 
in accordance with IEC (BS)/EN60079‐10:2003.   This is to ensure that all plant installed in these areas are 
suitably rated to eliminate the potential risk of explosion. 
NOTE: 
A. This  classification  is  based  on  the  design  contained  in  the  tender  documents.    Review  will  be 
required to reassess and verify the Hazardous Area Classification (HAC) based on the particular 
equipment selected by the Contractor. 
B. This classification is for the new Works undertaken under the Construction of Electro‐Chlorination 
at Chua Chu Kang Waterworks.   

2 Explosive Atmospheres
2.1 Requirements for Area Classification
Many gases, vapours, mists and dusts encountered in industry are flammable and some of these occur in 
the water and sewage industry.  When ignited, they may burn readily and with considerable explosive 
force if mixed with air in appropriate proportions.  It is often necessary to use mechanical and electrical 
apparatus in locations where such flammable materials may be present, and appropriate precautions must 
therefore  be  taken  to  ensure  that  all  such  apparatus  is  adequately  protected  in  order  to  reduce  the 
likelihood of ignition of any explosive atmosphere.  When using electrical apparatus, potential ignition 
sources  include  electrical  arcs  and  sparks,  hot  surfaces  and,  in  certain  circumstances  with  mechanical 
equipment sparks caused by friction.  
In general, protection against mechanical and electrical ignition sources is achieved by implementing one 
of two practices:  
 Whenever practicable, the apparatus should be located outside hazardous areas;  
 Alternatively  the  apparatus  must  be  designed,  installed  and  maintained  in  accordance  with 
measures recommended for the area in which the apparatus is to be located. 
It is, therefore, necessary to identify areas within which such precautions are required. This is known as 
hazardous area classification or the zoning of hazardous areas.  The purpose of area classification is to 
provide  a  basis  for  the  correct  selection,  installation  and  location  of  electrical  and  non‐electrical 
equipment  in  those  areas.    Areas  must  be  classified  depending  on  the  properties  of  the  flammable 
vapours, liquids, gases, mists, dusts when a combustible concentration is present. 
The  intent  of  the  area  classification  is  to  reduce  to  an  acceptable  minimum  level  the  probability  of  a 
flammable atmosphere and an ignition source occurring at the same time. 
Equipment to be installed in hazardous areas shall be CE marked as complying with the ATEX European 
Directive 94/9/EU, and shall comply with IEC 60079:  Electrical apparatus for explosive gas atmospheres. 
The result of the classification will be the division of the hazardous areas into zones.

3 Methodology for Area Classification
This hazardous area classification uses the International Electrotechnical Commission (IEC) 60079‐10‐
1;  Explosive  atmospheres  ‐  Part  10‐1:  Classification  of  areas  ‐  Explosive  gas  atmospheres  standard; 
which references the Institute of Petroleum model code of  safe  practice in the  petroleum industry; 
Part 15 – Area Classification Code for Installations Handling Flammable Fluids (IP15) as the supporting 
document.  The terms used within IP15 are consistent with the usage and principles in IEC 60079‐10. 
Classification of the areas has been carried out in accordance with the requirements of IEC (BS)/EN 60079‐
10:2003.  An analysis in accordance with this standard for the site is included in Appendix A.  
IEC 60079 ‐10 states that “the area classification should be carried out by those who have knowledge of 
the properties of flammable materials, the process and the equipment, in consultation, as appropriate, 
with safety, electrical and other engineering personnel.” 

3.1 Definitions
Non‐hazardous (N):  An  area  in  which  an  explosive  gas  atmosphere  is  not  expected  to  be  present  in 
quantities such as to require special precautions for the construction, installation 
and use of apparatus. 
Hazardous area:   An area in which an explosive gas atmosphere is present or may be expected to be 
present, in quantities such as to require special precautions for the construction, 
installation and use of apparatus. 
Hazardous  areas  are  classified  into  zones  based  on  the  frequency  of  occurrence  and  duration  of  an 
explosive gas atmosphere, as follows1: 
Zone 0  A place in which an explosive atmosphere consisting of a mixture with air of flammable 
substances in the form of gas, vapour or mist is present continuously or for long periods 
or frequently. 
Zone 1   A place in which an explosive atmosphere consisting of a mixture with air of flammable 
substances  in  the  form  of  gas, vapour  or mist  is  likely to occur in normal operation 
occasionally. 
Zone 2  A place in which an explosive atmosphere consisting of a mixture with air of flammable 
substances in the form of gas, vapour or mist is not likely to occur in normal operation 
but, if it does occur, will persist for a short period only. 
Note: for the purpose of this standard, an area or place is a three dimensional region or space. 

3.2 Flammable Substances


The  gas  groups  and  temperature  classes  for  the  flammable  substances  that  most  often  give  rise  to  a 
potentially flammable atmosphere in a typical water treatment works with processes that form part of 
the facilities proposed at CCKWW are as follows. 
Substance  Gas Group  Temperature 
Classification 
Hydrogen  IIC  T1

3.3 Grades of Release
There are three basic grades of release, as listed below in order of decreasing frequency and likelihood of 
the explosive gas atmosphere being present: 
a) Continuous  grade:  release  which  is  continuous  or  is  expected  to  occur  frequently  or  for  long 
periods 
b) Primary grade: release which can be expected to occur periodically or occasionally during normal 
operation 
c) Secondary grade: release which is not expected to occur in normal operation and, if it does occur, 
is likely to do so only infrequently and for short periods 
A source of release may give rise to any one of these grades of release, or to a combination of more than

Gas or vapour released into the atmosphere can be diluted by dispersion or diffusion into the air until its 
concentration is below the lower explosive limit.  In the CCKWW design ventilation is provided by two 
means: 
a) Mechanical Ventilation 
b) Natural Ventilation 

3.4.1 Degree of Ventilation


The following three Degrees of Ventilation have been used in this assessment: 
High:  Can  reduce  the  concentration,  at  the  source  of  release  virtually  instantaneously, 
resulting in a concentration below the LEL. 

651578 - CCKWW HYPO HAC REPORT/3.METHODOLOGY FOR AREA CLASSIFICATION REV 0 – DRAFT [3-3]
COPYRIGHT 2013 BY CH2M HILL PTE LTD  COMPANY CONFIDENTIAL
Medium:  Can control the concentration, resulting in a stable situation in which the concentration 
beyond the zone boundary is below the LEL whilst the release is in progress and where 
the explosive atmosphere does not persist after the release has stopped. 
Low:  Cannot control the concentration whilst release is in progress and / or cannot prevent 
an undue persistence of a flammable atmosphere after the release has stopped. 

3.4.2 Availability of Ventilation


The  availability  of  ventilation  has  an  influence  on  the  presence  or  formation  of  an  explosive  gas 
atmosphere and thus also on the type of zone.  
The following three levels of Availability of Ventilation have been used in this assessment: 
Good:  Ventilation is present almost continuously. 
Fair:  Ventilation  is  expected  to  be  present  during  normal  operation.  Discontinuities  are 
permitted provided they occur infrequently and for short periods. 
Poor:  Ventilation which does not meet the standard of good or poor, but discontinuities are 
not expected to occur for long periods. 
Where mechanical ventilation is provided, if it incorporates duty and standby fans it has been assessed as 
Good.
