Water Supply Company - COMAH Site chlorine plant safety - Case Study

Top-bar image

Rowan House Ltd has worked with almost all the major water companies operating in the UK water industry in a number of ways.

Our scope of services has been diverse and included HAZOP, DSEAR, SIL Assessments, Process Equipment Design and Process Studies for water and waste treatment processes, energy generation and safety systems. We have also provided various training courses on subjects ranging from HAZOP, SIL and COMAH.

We have recently completed risks assessments for a chlorine dosing system for a water company operating a Lower Tier COMAH site. The risk assessment justified that on any release of chlorine gas, containment within the process equipment was a safe system of operation for this site.

The risk assessment was scrutinised by the HSE and after various meetings with the HSE and their chlorine specialist, it was agreed that for this site, containment within the process equipment was a safe system of operation in the case of a chlorine gas release.

Rowan House Ltd played an integral part in the discussions with the HSE and in convincing them, that in the case of a chlorine gas release, containment within the process equipment was a safest system of operation for this site.
