Hima Americas has announced a five-year agreement with BP Products North America to provide its Safety Instrumented Systems (SIS) and Functional Safety Services to BP’s North American refineries.

The agreement is based on Hima’s TUV-certified Himax safety platform; its Silworx configuration, programming and diagnostic software suite; and associated Functional Safety and Engineering services, which under the agreement, will be available to all five of BP’s North American refineries.

According to Hima, its safety systems will strengthen BP’s ongoing safety focus by allowing BP to implement the highest level of safety integrity, with the flexibility to update, maintain or modify the systems without interrupting their protective functions or production operations.

The Hima safety systems will also help BP to standardise safety design, implementation methodology and compliance documentation, which will help to enhance its safety infrastructure by creating an efficient model that can be easily replicated.
