Companies handling flammable and/or toxic materials are exposed to hazards during storage, transporting, and processing. As such, it is crucial to understand the consequences of a potential loss of containment of a hazardous event when performing a risk assessment.
Supported by various advanced modelling software tools, our team of highly experienced consultants can help you assess the consequences and risks associated with your potential hazards. Furthermore, we can help you define effective safety measures to prevent the loss of control of a hazardous event or to reduce potential risks to an acceptable level.
We develop and use the industry-standard Computational Fluid Dynamics (CFD) tool FLACS, to support us in performing various comprehensive studies for you. FLACS is an advanced modeling tool that predicts consequences more accurately by including all contributing and mitigating effects. A better understanding and higher accuracy of results allow us to choose effective design options and mitigation measures and thereby enhance both safety and cost-effective solutions. Along with FLACS, our team is highly experienced in the use of empirical tools such as Shell’s FRED, Shepherd, PIPA, and Gexcon’s EFFECTS and RISKCURVES (formerly TNO).
