Risk based inspection and maintenance procedures for european industry

Objective

Current practice to inspection and maintenance planning is for most industries based on tradition and prescriptive rules, rather than on an optimised process where risk measures for safety, environment and economy are integrated. New technology for taking risk-based decisions is emerging within a broad range of sectors, and has proven to be a very efficient tool. There is, however, a great need to define the technical content, links to local legislation and integrate this approach with the day-to-day plant operation. This is the main background for the present proposal, where 17 European companies representing a broad industry base have joined forces to develop a European best practice and to verify its applicability in several case studies. The project addresses the petrochemical, chemical, pulp & paper, steel works, and the power industry specifically. But the techniques can easily be extended to other industry sectors.
