Why choose us?
Our design team have years of experience tackling large or small projects, brown or greenfield, conceptual design, FEED, detailed engineering, and operational enhancements. New build designs are optimised to get the right balance of capital and operating costs, environmental and safety performance. Existing operating plant can be modified to squeeze out more capacity and optimise yields and energy costs. Our advanced modelling techniques and innovative approach ensure you get value for your money and a safe, efficient, and reliable plant. Our state-of-the-art Relief Flow software will optimise your relief system and design. Difficult services (two-phase flow etc.) are handled with ease.
We apply advanced steady-state and dynamic modelling techniques to help our clients overcome their process challenges. We specialise in the difficult problems, whatever the challenge, we can help – design, new process development, scale-up, troubleshooting, debottlenecking, optimization, energy efficiency, training, or operating too close to the safe envelope. Our modelling expertise enables us to gain a thorough understanding of the process and allows potential changes to be tried without real world consequences, supporting design and operating decisions with accurate information and at minimal risk. Our Relief Flow software and LNG Rollover prediction have already saved our clients millions of dollars in reduced CAPEX and operating costs.
Our Process Safety consultants can work with both industry and regulators to ensure your plant meets all safety and risk management requirements. We believe that getting process safety right adds value, and ensures a cost-effective design and efficient operation. We offer process safety services such as facilitation of safety studies (HAZOP, HAZID, PHR, LOPA & SIL, Bowtie & ALARP, inherent safety, PSSR) and other support (Safety Case and ALARP demonstrations, consequence modelling, functional safety, barrier management, RCA, safety culture, due diligence). Ideally, we get involved early with preliminary hazard assessments and inherent safety reviews. We incorporate sustainable design principles into these reviews ensuring the right balance of capital and operating costs, environmental and safety performance. Our dynamic simulations allow us to understand what happens when things go wrong, during start-ups or non-steady state operations, allowing evidence-based decisions to be made. This avoids basing designs and procedures on risky assumptions, and many of our clients have benefited as a result.
Decarbonisation & Net Zero
The world has a major problem and changing the way industry goes about its business is a major part of the solution. Many of our clients are transitioning to Net Zero, and Flex Process is with them. Flex Process is a leader in applying advanced process simulation tools to solve our clients’ difficult problems – and no problem is more challenging than the race to Net Zero. We understand the long-term approach required to make this transition and we work with our clients to provide innovative and efficient solutions and help them overcome challenges as they arise.
