BMT has been commissioned to conduct risk assessments for the client to facilitate their submission for the approval of the Fire Services Department to grant a Dangerous Goods (DG) license for data centres and water treatment works. The fire services installations involved include aboveground/underground bulk fuel storage tanks and chlorine production process.
In the risk assessments, both qualitative and quantitative approaches have been adopted.
We have conducted qualitative risk assessment, Hazard Identification (HAZID) workshops and consequence analyses to estimate the hazards associated with the use and storage of DG.
We also employed quantitative risk assessment, assessments of failure frequencies by fault tree and event tree analyses, as well as software modelling of consequences to demonstrate the risk levels complied with the risk criteria in Hong Kong.
BMT has identified potential risks and has provided value added and cost effective risk reduction measures for optimizing the engineering designs for the future operation in terms of:
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.
BMT was invited by a global financing and development institution to conduct a cumulative risk assessment of its three major industrial facilities in Nansha, Pearl River Delta and to review its industrial hazard risk management system.
Following a launch of an initiative to improve transport safety in Tonga, BMT was invited by World Bank to identify what further assistance was needed to improve the ongoing safe operations of inter island shipping in Tonga.
As part of a larger revitalisation plan a new transport system operating along the length of the Singapore River from Kim Seng to the new Merlion Park will be introduced for locals and tourists. BMT was commissioned to undertake a marine risk assessment.
