ISLAMABAD: To avert any unwanted circumstances, process safety is critical, Avanceon Limited CEO Bakhtiar H Wain, emphasised at a seminar on Process Safety on Wednesday.
Avanceon CEO said safety meant business continuity, imperative for any industry involved in manufacturing or process.
“Safety considerations in processes avoid systems breakdowns and preclude with consequences that can be dramatic both to the environment and the citizens,” he said.
Functional safety standards and their implementations are riddled with difficult to understand terminologies and definitions, he lamented. This is a field where real expertise is needed.
“I will not say it enough, but preventative you might end up either over designing your systems or missing out the key components that are necessary to make your system safe.”
Engro Elengy Terminal Limited E&I Lead Syed Ammar Shah highlighted the benefits of safety solutions implemented by Avanceon Limited for the company’s LNG plant. “Avanceon team definitely helped Engro in improving the safety of the plant,” he added.
The seminar was very relevant for Pakistan’s aim to expand its nuclear energy base. Engineering experts particularly discussed Fukushima Disaster (nuclear meltdown) case study and underlined the lessons learnt.
