LOPA Study

Client: Polimeri, Hampshire


The Brief

Our Client, following a HAZOP study, required leadership and guidance to study a number of identified scenarios and their compliance with agreed Tolerated Event Frequencies.

The Challenge

The primary focus of the LOPA study was the assessment of the required SIL level (if any) for the Safety Instrumented Functions included in the design.

The Response

The BPE team provided training to the Client team on LOPA studies for SIL assessment purposes. We also provided guidance on the derivation of ‘acceptable level of risks’ using guidelines provided by the appropriate documentation/bodies (IEC 61511/08, IChemE).

The BPE Study Chair guided the Client team during the LOPA assessments.

The Results

As a result of BPE’s support and guidance to the LOPA Studies, the client was able to successfully complete a challenging project scope.
