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. We were 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.
We were engaged to prepare designs to more than double the output of an existing barge loading facility in Kalimantan, Indonesia. The facility handles a number of different grades of coal to deliver a specified blend to each barge.
We assisted in the development of offshore oil facilities on Pulau Busing Island, off Singapore's busy south coast. The work was motivated by the increasing costs of oil, and our team was in place to assess a total engineering design and project management consultancy for four new jetties.
We have been providing engineering support to Muhibbah Engineering Bhd for the LNG Regasification Facilities Project, commencing from FEED for the LNG regas unit and the Island berth.
