Site Wide Hazop of Existing Facility

Client: Polimeri - Fawley


The Brief

A long standing plant manufacturing SBR Polymers needed to undertake a site wide HAZOP of existing as-built Piping and Instrumentation Diagrams (P&ID’s). The work was instructed by the Health and Safety Executive (HSE).

The Challanges

The scale of the facility with over 100 P&ID’s to be studied and the nature of the site hazards including widespread use of solvents and exothermic reactions provided significant challenges to the BPE HAZOP team.

The Response

BPE worked with the Polimeri team to establish and deliver a plan that could integrate fully with site operations. This was particularly relevant with the extensive project scope in terms of ensuring active participation from operational and maintenance teams.

The Results

BPE successfully completed the HAZOP programme with rigorous management of HAZOP reports and regular progress reporting to site management. HAZOP actions were collated and tracked to close-out.
