In the first workshop with the control room operators, the main focus was to show how we build the models behind Kairos CRA and to share experiences. The knowledge they shared will be put into our models and make valuable information available for all the operators using Kairos CRA. It's important to capture their knowledge now, before operators start to retire as the new operators today will not get to operate the plant in “manual mode” as many of the experienced ones have, and important knowledge might be lost.
For the second round of workshops we will be using our technology like a “re-HAZOP”. Based on the scenarios discussed from the earlier workshops, we will illustrate how different scenarios would propagate in the process system on Yme. This will help the operators be more aware of the early-stage symptoms in the future and how to best handle these situations.
We will also discuss how we present the necessary information to the operators. Therefore, we are “all ears” when it comes to improving the user-interface of Kairos CRA to best support them in action.
We are looking forward to further cooperation and hope to share and exchange even more experience and knowledge in the future.
The Yme plant is built based on a combination of reused material, new material, and with new technology.
