Safety & Reliability

Managers and users expect their systems to meet increasingly stringent performance requirements. The breakdown and unavailability of assets like a production line, power plant, navigation lock, pumping station, treatment plant or flood defence will usually result in steep costs or highly unsafe situations and need to be kept to an absolute minimum. Iv-Groep has a team of experienced specialists and tools to support you in keeping pace with the increasingly stringent requirements your systems must meet in terms of their reliability, availability, maintainability and safety, collectively referred to as RAMS. Among other things we possess ample experience and knowledge of numerous technologies and methods, including FMECA, HAZOP, LCCA and fault tree analyses. Our know-how allows us to provide support across the entire spectrum of feasibility study, design, and building of assets, and during their management and maintenance. We are your partner in optimising life cycle costs, performance and risks.

RAMS analysis

RAMS performance levels are seldom a stand-alone phenomenon. The failure or shutdown of one or more parts will generally impact the functions of the system as a whole. For that reason, Iv-Groep always approaches a RAMS analysis by means of Systems Engineering to assure the integrality of the typically numerous functions and disciplines within your networks and systems.
Optimising RAMS performance levels is a continuous process that requires constant attention. Iv-Groep will support you in all the steps of the plan-do-check-act circle. We can do this because in addition to our experienced risk analysts and systems engineers, we have a large group of inspectors, supervisors and testers that monitor and deal with RAMS performance levels in practice.

Safety in your organisation

Safety is of paramount importance for every company. The health and welfare of your employees are extremely important matters. The same goes for environmental effects and risks for the surroundings. Legislation governing these matters is tightening up all the time. But how do you know when your company is safe enough, and how do you reduce all risks to a controllable level? Iv-Groep can advise you.
We are familiar with all legislation and will be pleased to support you. Using various risk analyses we will find practical and effective solutions, avoid accidents with machines and process installations, promote the health and safety of your employees and minimise environmental effects and risks for the surroundings. We can give you an insight into the reliability of your software. At Iv-Groep we always provide tailor-made services to fit your needs.

Integral approach to the issue you face
Complex issues require an integral approach. Iv-Groep has experts in process technology, civil engineering, mechanical engineering, electrical engineering and hydraulics, but also inspectors and risk analysts who ensure that all disciplines are completely in tune with each other. We are able to deliver optimum performance in a short time in multidisciplinary environments. This capability enables Iv-Groep to make a fundamental contribution to the success of its clients.
