Abstract

Currently, the European process industries face three major problems: finding ways to operate, maintain and refurbish existing plants to maintain competitiness and maximise long-term profiability; improving product quality; and concerns about the safety, health and environmental (SHE) performance of older plants. These problems provided the stimulus for the ELAPSE (Extending the Life of Ageing Plants by Systematic Engineering) project. This paper describes the content of the project and work done during the first year. The ELAPSE methodology is based on a formal object oriented description of a plant, and risk and reliability analysis methdos and tools linked with that description. Short examples of plant description and criteria developed for maintenance planning are included.
