The demanding environment in which a plant operates may affect the ability of a broad range of materials to perform their intended functions over extended service periods. Therefore, identifying materials and components that are degrading over time is an important aspect of the safe and secure operation of industrial plants.
Plant Safety Upgrade
Accidents caused by operational faults, extreme natural and environmental events or malevolent attacks led to the new engineering and design challenges to make these facilities safer and better prepared for the simultaneous occurrence of severe, internal and external events with low-probability and high-impact by nature.
Decommissioning is not simply a demolition, it is part of the final shutdown, which begins with the systematic deconstruction of complex industrial facilities made up with many large components and supporting systems, including thousands of meters of pipes along with even greater volumes of construction materials and ends with the packaging and transport of the resulting waste for safe storage and disposal with a cleanup operation for the entire site including in some cases, decontamination of the surrounding environment, soil and groundwater.
