Functional Safety service provision for UK synchrotron

27 July 2020

Diamond Light Source, the UK’s national synchrotron science facility, has appointed Inspec Solutions, an independent control, safety and automation systems supplier, to provide Functional Safety Services across its operations.

Diamond is one of the most advanced scientific facilities in the world and its pioneering capabilities are helping to keep the UK at the forefront of scientific research. Its technology accelerates electrons to near light speeds so that they give off light 10 billion times brighter than the sun. This allows scientists to use the light to study a vast range of subject matter, from new medicines and treatments for disease to innovative engineering and cutting-edge technology.

Inspec Solutions was approached by the organisation to help meet its demanding proof test schedule as the Diamond Light Source recognised the importance of effective high integrity automatic safety systems to protect hazardous processes.
Inspec Solutions will quickly deploy a team and begin testing, allowing Diamond staff to focus on core working duties.
Mark Ritson, Managing Director of Inspec Solutions, explains: “We are really excited to be working 
The Inspec Solutions team supporting Diamond includes certified TÜV Functional Safety Engineers, as well as highly experienced offshore technicians with backgrounds in supporting critical infrastructure in the UK North Sea. 
Inspec Solutions has over 15 years of Functional Safety experience in many different industries, focusing on both continuous process and machinery installations. This experience allows it to carry out proof testing on safety critical systems and to work with clients to improve their own procedures. Including a certified Functional Safety Engineer in the team provided a fresh and thorough review over the existing proof test procedures, highlighting opportunities for improvements.
The company provides high integrity, SIL rated systems and offers every stage of the safety lifecycle from Risk Assessment / HAZOP / LOPA, SRS, through design, installation, validation and SIF proof testing services.
