Major accidents often have catastrophic impact on human life, the environment, company’s assets and reputation. In order to mitigate the consequences of such accidents thereby achieving an optimum safety level throughout the facility, it is important to fully understand the nature of hazards with the use of specialized software.
ProAct’s engineers have extensive experience in identifying credible major accident scenarios and depicting the hazard radii of BLEVEs, VCEs, pool fires, jet fires, flammable and toxic gas releases using the internationally recognised EFFECTS software by Gexcon and TNO.
Why consequence modelling?
- Determine the extent of major accident consequences and update the emergency plan accordingly to include necessary actions and major risk areas
- Make informed decisions about equipment siting in new facilities in order to avoid domino effects and, if possible, limit the consequences in only certain areas
- Choose the most cost-effective technical solution comparing the magnitude of consequence mitigation that each alternative can offer
- Comply with the provisions of SEVESO III Directive (2012/18/EU) either for lower-tier or upper-tier establishments
