The energy industry has invested in the development of electro-hydraulic and all-electric systems to achieve greater reliability, availability, maintainability, and safety. For example, the all-electric Xmas tree, electro-hydraulic valve actuator, and electro-hydraulic workover control systems. The Safety 4.0 project dived into the critical issues, including the subsea all-electric concept. By developing a new framework, this project has provided the industry with a unified approach to demonstrating the safety of novel technologies. In particular, for systems with increasing complexity, e.g., the increased degree of software dependencies. The seminar will present the opportunities and challenges of electro-hydraulic and all-electric systems based on DNV’s industrial and research experience.
In this free-to-attend seminar, energy industry stakeholders are invited to discuss the pros and cons of classic hydraulic, electro-hydraulic, and all-electric systems in safety applications. Of particular interest will be the opportunity to discuss the potential of these technologies to achieve high safety integrity, high availability, low maintenance costs, and low carbon emission.
This seminar is specifically useful for:
Control system engineers, instrumentation engineers, safety system engineers, and other stakeholders in energy operators, valve actuator vendors, safety automation system vendors, safety system integrators, and PEC contractors.
