Increased levels of functional safety lifecycle management and support

25 September 2013

In a recently awarded contract, safety systems company Hima-Sella is to supply two dual redundant SIL3 High Integrity Pressure Protection Solutions (HIPPS), built around its Planar4 solid state logic solver, as well as independent SIL3 assessment services.

This, it says, demonstrates an increasing need for the company’s coordinated services, that can be tailored to meet the requirements of all phases of the safety lifecycle.

In another example, and working with an external consultant, Hima-Sella is to conduct a review of a SIL3 system installed on an offshore platform; with a view to confirming that the system meets the requirements of BS EN 61508 in terms of hardware, software, documentation, competency of personnel and FSM procedures.

Eddy Turnock, Hima-Sella’s sales & marketing director, said: “Functional safety applies to the entire lifecycle of a plant, or any part thereof, from the initial concept of what the plant will do through to the decommissioning of systems and equipment. Historically, process plant owners have taken care of managing the functional safety lifecycle themselves, but this is becoming more and more challenging. We have decided to expand our traditional system design and engineering services to include consultancy, planning, assessment and specification services, system commissioning, operation and maintenance services, and system modification and decommissioning. We also offer training and on-site support.”
