The operating environment of Singapore's industrial hub Jurong Island has grown increasingly complex, with a diverse range of chemical plants clustered together. It is imperative that safety standards are maintained at a level that is commensurate with the risks present.
To achieve this vision, the Safety and Risk Management Centre (SRMC) has been set up, bringing together stakeholder agencies on a single platform to focus on safety and risk management via a Whole-of-Government approach.
JTC Corporation and the SRMC conducted pilot QRA studies to establish the applicability of the new guidelines in the local context. BMT was invited by JTC and SRMC to conduct a pilot study on an existing manufacturing facility in Singapore based on new guidelines and provide comparison between different guideline requirements.
Assessments based on new QRA guidelines included the following works:
In view of changes made to Singapore QRA Guidelines (implemented in 2016), a Dutch storage major with a brown-field facility whereby the risk from the facility has not been assessed engaged BMT to carry out a Quantitative Risk Assessment (QRA) in accordance to both existing and new Singapore QRA Guidelines for the Terminal.
A number of terminal feasibility studies were supported using the STATSCo in-house BMT REMBRANDT system, as well as incident reconstructions to provide rapid insight.
BMT prepared a detailed demand assessment to identify the product mix and potential industry clusters that drive the cargo throughout the client's ports in China.
BMT carried out the conceptual design of the MOLF, covering geotechnical and marine structural engineering design activities, as well as a number of specialist studies and surveys needed for adequately evaluating the options available.
