Colleagues from Vysus Group's Risk Management Consulting team are among the experts from consulting companies contributing towards an innovative joint industry project
The SAFEN – Safe Energy Carriers – project kicked-off in March this year. It aims to close the identified knowledge gaps in understanding especially failure mechanisms and ignition hazards in renewable technologies involving hydrogen, ammonia and carbon capture and storage.
The project is being led by Safetec, along with Equinor, Var Energi, Yara, Aker Clean Hydrogen, Origin Energy (Australia), Gassco, Gen2 Energy and DSB, with additional expertise provided by consultancies Vysus Group, Gexcon, Proactima and DNV.
Gathering the consulting companies together for an in-person workshop in Oslo, has marked the first milestone.
Senior Principal Consultant, Joar Dalheim, who was the initial Vysus lead on SAFEN, said: “It is a credit to our technical team that we are involved with this project and that we can contribute to such a vital initiative. The workshop session was very valuable as we were able to get together in person and get to know the people we will be collaborating and sharing knowledge with. We look forward to the next meeting.”
Kees Van Wingerden, who is technical lead on the project, said: “We are extremely pleased and excited to be involved with this initiative, along with some of the industry’s foremost safety experts in renewable technologies. By combining our collective knowledge and experience, we can develop the innovative safety management solutions required to help reduce the risks and costs associated with hydrogen, ammonia and carbon capture and storage technologies.”
