Each industry requires its own approach

Each industry is governed by different sets of regulations, and industry-specific knowledge is key to proper risk assessment. Such knowledge is essential for us to quickly understand your situation and challenges.

HYEX may support your projects from the early design stages by performing a design screening and helping to optimise system layout related to safety. HYEX has held many safety workshops (design screening, HAZID) with the purpose to identify risks and ways to mitigate or prevent these. Given our broad understanding of the explanatory factors behind potential hazards, and expertise using the FLACS CFD consequence modelling software, we assess your risks efficiently.

Maritime industries

Zero emission fuels like hydrogen and ammonia, as well as most low emission fuels, are in the category of low flashpoint fuels and regulated by the IGF-code. The IGF-code requires a risk assessment to be performed, including an explosion assessment, to demonstrate that risks are equivalent to risks at modern, conventionally fuelled vessels. HYEX Safety supports such projects from the early design stages, with experience from 20+ hydrogen and ammonia vessel projects. We offer to organise design screening to help optimise system layout related to safety, contribute to HAZID-workshops to identify remaining hazards, and document the risk through quantitative risk assessments including CFD explosion and dispersion studies for approval processes towards classification society and flag state administration.

For bunkering sites, a risk assessment to define Safety zone and Monitoring and Security area may be required, as for LNG per ISO 20519. Such assessments are highly relevant both for LH2 and for ammonia.


Land-based infrastructure and industries

Safety assessments for any kind of hydrogen and ammonia facilities, infrastructure and manufacturers are a speciality of HYEX Safety. Assessments may focus on design optimisation to limit risk from hydrogen and ammonia equipment, on workplace safety at handling sites, or the evaluation of risk around a site to define risk contours for land planning purposes.

Upon request, we perform:
box Safety screening for sites handling hydrogen and ammonia using HYEX Safety engineering tools.
box Specialist CFD-studies for dispersion and explosion assessments.
box Accident/incident investigation support with detailed CFD-modelling.
