Webinar "Increase safety in hydrogen installations by detecting hydrogen leaks by the speed of sound"
Thursday 30 May 2024 from 15:00 - 16:00 (CEST)

This webinar will be facilitated by Distran with Martin Olesen as speaker.

As hydrogen is highly flammable, checking for leaks is an essential step for its safe use. Methods based on gas detection are not adapted to this small but highly flammable molecule, prone to escape. Conventional point gas detectors, used in outdoor hydrogen facilities, will in most cases not be suitable, simply because the leaking hydrogen will disperse very fast, and never reach the point detector in time.

Alternatively, the use of Distran acoustic cameras greatly enhances the response time to hydrogen plants safety systems by allowing an instant detection and a precise pinpointing of hydrogen leaks. In turn, providing an effective monitoring of installations.

Unlike conventional point gas detectors, ultrasound cameras detect gas leaks based on ultrasound they emit, rather than requiring the gas to enter in contact with the detector itself, This technology is a more efficient and reliable approach to safeguarding against potential leak hazards in hydrogen facilities.

Aspects to be discussed in an interactive setting

  • How to ensure safety on your hydrogen premises
  • Discover a new technology to get an early detection of leaks and their accurate location

Webinar "iaHAZOP: Digital Twin-based Risk Management"
Thursday 4 July 2024 from 15:00 - 16:00 (CEST)

This webinar will be facilitated by TÜV SÜD with Michael Pfeifer as speaker.

Today, industry is facing major challenges, such as fluctuating market demands, turbulence in supply chains, new requirements for energy efficiency or a shortage of skilled workers. The most important measures to successfully meet these challenges include automation and digitalization, also for safety and risk management.

With “interactive HAZOP” (iaHAZOP), TÜV SÜD has developed a method that enables predictive runtime risk management as well as virtual risk assessment in planning phases. This improves the transparency of the situation, and thus supports safety critical decision-making. Ultimately, this increases uptime or leads to a faster time-to-market, in the case of modular plants.

Aspects to be discussed in an interactive setting

  • Benefits of Digital Twin-based risk management
  • Concept underlying the iaHAZOP methodology
  • Application scenarios
  • Possible project setups
