KLAW LNG will provide a unique insight into delivering SIL2 compliant LNG hose transfer operations at Gastech 2018.

Visitors to the stand will gain hands on experience of managing a SIL2 compliant LNG transfer and ESD1 and ESD2 emergency shutdown. Ensuring Availability due to SILSIS design and proof test capabilities will also be explained.

The Safety Integrated Level Safety Instrumented System (SILSIS) is the world’s first SIL2 compliant automated system for managing LNG transfers and emergency situations in flexible hose operations.

Julian Fairman of KLAW LNG commented: “To be SIL2 compliant, operations and procedures must also maintain SIL2 compliance over the operational life of the system. The SILSIS terminal on the KLAW LNG stand will also demonstrate the system’s ability in meeting this crucial aspect of functional safety for the process industry sector.”

SILSIS is a fully-automated Programme Logic Controlled (PLC) system and removes many human elements from the transfer process: this maximises cost efficient Availability. Not only does SILSIS offer minimal operational disruption by being able to proof test and diagnose issues without the need for invasive inspection, but its easy-to-use real-time interface ensures that operators can follow systematic procedures without the risk of distraction.

In addition to SILSIS, KLAW LNG will also be exhibiting its full range of LNG safety critical transfer systems. Its comprehensive range includes; ship-to-ship, ship-to-shore and bunkering operations from small to large scale; and the latest in small island and scalable bunkering applications.
