Lightning Protection in refineries: Cogeneration Plant of GALP refinery in Portugal

The installations of the refinery of the company GALP Energia in Matosinhos (Portugal) are provided with DAT CONTROLER® PLUS Early Streamer Emission Lightning Air Terminals.

The energy division of Galp in Portugal has trusted in Aplicaciones Tecnológicas for the design of the lightning protection installation. In the project all the security requirements from the last modification of the standard for lightning protection using ESE Air Terminals, UNE 21186/1M, have been taken into account.

Thus, the most significant buildings of the refinery facilities have been protected by installing four DAT CONTROLER® PLUS 60 ESE Air Terminals and eight Franklin Rods with their corresponding accessories.
