The energy sector is on a quest to increase the safety, reliability, and sustainability of energy sources. Increased efficiencies have been realized in the hydroelectric and oil and gas sectors through the modernization of legacy technologies, integration of new digital innovations, and a greater use of automation and remote operation.
Additionally, there has been increased interest in nuclear power with the development of new Small Modular Reactors and commercial fusion reactors.
Across energy sectors, real-time monitoring systems increasingly depend on advanced sensors to produce data to support critical decision making. Adding to the complexity in these large ‘systems of systems’ is the fact that legacy technology is now part of the “internet of things,” facing unknown threats with the potential to impact safety.
With decades of experience in hazard identification and safety assessment of the safety of highly integrated and inter-dependent ‘systems of systems,’ CSL provides effective solutions for managing safety risk and supporting compliance with industry standards and regulatory requirements. From hydroelectric to nuclear sectors, CSL brings a deep understanding of safety requirements definition, safety verification and validation, and safety assurance cases.
