Process Industry


The safety of plants in the process industry, like for example chemical plants, refineries, oil- and gas production plants etc. is increasingly being realised by complex safety systems. Requirements of these electrical, electronic and programmable electronic safety-related systems (E/E/PES) are described in the internationally acknowledged standard IEC/EN 61508, part 1-7.

The application standard EN 61511 and VDI/VDE 2180 - derived from the IEC/EN 61508 - defines the requirements regarding the application and implementation of these safety-related systems (Safety Instrumented Systems - SIS) in the process industry. They describe in detail die requiremens of Functional Safety in process technical plants starting from the first concept, then design, installation, operation and maintenance to decommissioning.

If you are a designer, developer or user of safety-related systems - our Functional Safety experts can support you when you need to consider and give proof or evidence of Functional Safety within this system.

Our Services
