Hydrogen and ammonia

Hydrogen and ammonia represent great opportunities for the green transition. However, their success pivots on our ability to master them in a safe way, as both gases have significant risks associated with them.

Risk & safety through the whole value chain - from energy generation to end-user 

Vysus Group is a global leader in risk management and safety. State-of-the-art game-changing digital tools coupled with decades of domain knowledge on risk associated with production, transportation and use of hydrogen and ammonia, put us in a unique position. We identify risks, we help prevent accidents from happening, and we contribute to reducing the consequences should unwanted incidents occur. We look at technical, physical, organisational and human factors as part of a holistic approach to control risk and ensuring safe operations.

These are a few examples of how we can support your efforts:

  • Safety evaluation of sites for production and compliance with local regulations
  • Risk assessment of storage facility
  • Guidance and technical advisory in connection with acquisition of equipment for both production, storage and use of hydrogen and ammonia
  • Leakage avoidance in terms of technical barriers and maintenance management
  • Pulsation analysis to prevent failures in pipe and process equipment from acoustic and mechanical resonance
  • Design of optimal ventilation in rooms and buildings to avoid flammable atmospheres
  • Avoidance of potential ignition sources by classification of hazardous areas, guidance regarding choice of equipment and ignition hazard assessments
  • Technical advisory regarding design limiting consequences of fires and explosions
  • Preparedness for emergencies
  • Incident and accident investigations
  • Identification of safety-related risks and how to address them
  • How to improve the safety culture in an organisation
