ASSURANCE OF NEW DESIGN
Risk assessment of the design process – Identifying latent errors during the design process of large offshore structures avoids the potential failures during operations. With experience in projects such as the design process of the flexi-joint at the top of the legs of the Troll gas platform, our analysis delivers more robust design and improves the organization and management of the design process.
Safety assurance of the new design -Using HAZID and FMEA, we can identify potential failure modes for a new design. Quantitative risk analysis can be used to prioritise risk reducing measures, changes to the design and to improve operational procedures.
