Ineos, one of Europe’s principal petrochemicals producers, has awarded a significant contract to DNV GL to provide installation, configuration, training, testing and commissioning of Synergi Plant software for asset integrity management at the Ineos Manufacturing Belgium NV plant in Antwerp.
Synergi Plant software is a systematic and cost-effective inspection programme which can tailor inspection efforts on high-risk areas thereby eliminating unnecessary work. This provides huge benefits to the user by improving safety, reducing costs and achieving optimum plant reliability and availability.
Are Føllesdal Tjønn, managing director, DNV GL – Software says: “DNV GL’s Synergi Plant software solution gives our customers the confidence that their inspection programmes are risk-based, optimised and controlled to ensure their plants are operated safely and efficiently.
Johan Beerlandt, Ineos Manufacturing inspection team leader adds: “We are very pleased with the user-friendliness of Synergi Plant’s web-based interface. Combined with the RBI software we can look to the future with confidence concerning the integrity of our installations..”
Synergi Plant software is a comprehensive management tool to allow proactive asset integrity management, focusing on data management, inspection and risk management of process plants and offshore units. The risk-based inspection (RBI) module in the software uses qualified or quantified measures of risk to prioritise and manage the efforts of an inspection programme. Synergi Plant will be configured to Ineos Manufacturing’s individual inspection requirements and existing process workflow. DNV GL will provide full training and support to enable the company to easily maintain the system.
