Effective engineering of lightning safety and protection solutions

Posted by on Jan 13, 2018 in Comments |

‘It is well understood that a properly engineered lightning safety and lightning protection system (LPS) can limit damage and loss of life/injury. Whilst a standards-based technical approach has been found to be effective and to result in enhanced protection against the effects of lightning, a proper engineering approach to lightning protection is often not evident.’ This was noted by Ian McKechnie, CEO of project and engineering advisors and...

Minimising engineering and project problems and disputes

Posted by on Oct 4, 2017 in Comments |

I recently commented in the context of ‘troubleshooting and fixing’ that “challenges and potential problems are an ever-present reality and ‘come with the territory’ in the engineering, projects and operations environment. How their likelihood is minimised, and how they are handled when they do occur, is therefore vital in minimising their potential impact and in effectively managing or dealing with the outcomes”. In our professional...

Effectively manage lightning risks for complex applications

Posted by on Jun 27, 2017 in Comments |

“What do airports, mines, power generation plants (including renewables) and power infrastructure, communications/data infrastructure and large industrial plants like oil & gas have in common? They are all particularly exposed and vulnerable to the effects of lightning, and the consequences can be particularly severe.” According to Engenamic, with their team’s leading specialist professional engineering expertise in the field of lightning...

Expert solutions for lightning safety and lightning protection challenges

Posted by on Jul 9, 2016 in Comments |

As we move into or towards the lightning season in many parts of the world, lightning safety and lightning protection moves to “front of mind”. Numerous recent events internationally, including many associated deaths and injuries, have also highlighted the safety risks associated with lightning.  Many applications, such as those in mining, oil & gas (petrochemical), airports/aviation and other transportation systems (such as railways),...
