Process Safety

We believe that a plant only becomes truly safer when the recommendations made in a safety study are actually implemented and maintained in practice. In order to BRZO legislation or because as a plant owner you have safety at number 1; the safety lifecycle that we use is extensively defined in process safety lifecycle which we apply is extensively defined in industry standard IEC61511:

  • Define - in this phase we identify the process safety risks and control measures together with you by conducting studies:

    SWIFT | HAZOP | LOPA | QRA | Process Safety Management | Explosion protection (ATEX) SIF design | SIL verifications | Safety Requirement Specifications (SRS) | Functional Safety Assessments (FSA) | SIF Cause & Effect diagrams Functional Test Procedures

  • Implement - in this phase we help you to realise the independent layers of protection identified in the definition phase with our practical experience in:

    • process engineering
    • process safety engineering
    • functional safety engineering
  • Monitoring and maintenance - in this phase we identify the bad actors in the production process together with you. We do this by comparing operational and maintenance data from DCS, plant history and maintenance systems with the assumptions made in the studies. This makes the real risks visible and allows you to take targeted actions to reduce those risks. Continuously, in real-time and with optimal deployment of your people and resources.

In all these steps we are supported by the patented, award-winning safety lifecycle software of our partner aeShield®


Process optimisation

We make invisible energy and production losses visible and show how your plant performs. We have been able to demonstrate that the performance of production processes can be improved by an average of 10% - 30% with minimal effort and resources. In this way, we contribute to achieving climate targets and reducing the carbon footprint and operational costs of your plant.

  • Define - in this phase, we define the initial situation. How does the process work? What does the energy infrastructure look like? What are the measurement and control performances of the plant? Which parameters do you want optimised in the process?
  • Monitoring - in this phase the base-line or reference is established by a baseline measurement or data analysis, to which future plant operation (after optimisation) is related.

  • Optimisation - in this phase, we work on devising, implementing and securing adjustments to equipment or to basic or advanced process control.

Process Technology Transfer

Have you thought up that brilliant new process to make green molecules but don't know how to produce them on a large scale? Or do you have that process that produces large quantities of molecules in the conventional way and do you want to make it more sustainable? We build the bridge between knowledge institutions, start-ups and the chemical industry. Together, we play an active role in achieving the challenging CO2 targets of 2030.

You can use our process engineers as an extension of your own organisation so that they contribute to your:
