Refinery process plant

Refineries represent a combination of hydrocarbon risks including hazardous process plants, storage areas, and the continual supply and transportation of large volumes of dangerous and harmful substances such as hydrocarbon liquids and H2S gas.

Each area and activity carries its own specific challenges and this is increased by the fact that often these aspects of refinery activity often take in close proximity to each other. This means that in the event of fire, it is often necessary to use a combination of firefighting methods including fixed systems and mobile resources to contain and effectively extinguish the fire before it can extend beyond the area in which it originated.

Our specialists can advise the correct combination of water and foam systems to ensure that three basic principles are fully considered; How do we save lives? How do we save installations? How do we save the raw materials? A well designed and integrated fire safety system which is well maintained and regularly tested is the solution.

Our approach to fire protection

Effective fire protection requires the right balance between your equipment and systems, your onsite capability, and the potential risks a fire can cause. At Knowsley SK, we employ a structured approach to help you find the very best solution to your fire protection needs.

Site survey

Assess hazards, layout, processes & products

Our first step is to conduct a site survey, to assess the onsite hazards and the site layout, detail processes and evaluate stored products. Every site has a unique set of challenges which must be determined so that we can recommend the best solution. Our site survey will produce a detailed report with recommendations for improvements and may include a base outline of costs so that a scope of work can be agreed.

Quotation & design

Initial design and costs

When a clear scope of work has been defined, we then begin with the initial pre-bid design works. This helps with the preparation of an initial cost estimate (quotation), which is then submitted to you. This typically leads to a technical evaluation phase, so we can give site disciplines or approved 3rd party organisations the opportunity to comment on the plans and suggest possible changes. Once all details are agreed, a final quotation is submitted, and the contract documents can be signed.

Project management

Smooth execution & maintenance

We assign you a dedicated Project Manager to act as a single point contract for all commercial and technical matters, helping to ensure a smooth execution process at all times. After the contract documents are signed, a full, detailed design and co-ordination with certifying authorities will be finalised. When any of our projects are completed, we will recommend a term maintenance agreement that includes all necessary testing. This helps us ensure your critical systems are always in optimum condition and provides you with absolute peace of mind.
