QUOTES

  1. “Fitness-For-Service (FFS) is a systematic engineering approach used to assess the structural integrity of industrial (mostly pressurized) equipment. It's an essential concept because it enables us to determine quantitatively whether and under which conditions aging equipment with certain damages can continue to operate safely.”
  2.  “FFS supports sustainability by extending asset life cycles, reducing the need for new equipment manufacturing, and curbing carbon emissions and it minimizes unplanned downtime, reducing energy consumption and emissions and in some cases it prevents catastrophic failures that can lead to environmental harm as it shows that the integrity state isn´t sufficient any longer and measures have to be taken.”
  3. “For plant operators, I recommend applying the Asset Integrity Management Approach as it will not only cultivate and foster a safety-focused culture, but also by collaborating with RBI and FFS experts plant operators will stay proactive and innovative and actively contributing to a more sustainable and more decarbonised world.”
