Plant Integrity and Reliability
The risks of damage to plant and interruptions to production must be managed alongside the risks to people and the environment. Both should be reduced in line with good risk management practice.
Stirling Group covers the following areas to ensure high levels of availability:
- Plant is fit for purpose – Design Reviews and HAZOP
- Facility has resilience to minor accidents – plant layout and/or fire and explosion protection
- Plant control systems enable appropriate precautionary shut-down or recovery operations and avoid spurious trips – Reliability and Availability Studies
- Key equipment is identified, tested and maintained regularly – RAM studies, Fault tree Analysis and SIL standards.
