This course examines the causes and prevention of ammonia and urea incidents. It categorises the key hazards which must be controlled and reviews in detail the most common hazards associated with ammonia and urea plants. The course draws upon the past industry accidents and incidents, as well as errors in design, sometimes only revealed in operation. You will gain an understanding of the key operation, maintenance and plant modification aspects which must be controlled to ensure safe operation of ammonia and urea plants. Effective risk assessment is fundamental to protecting businesses against the potentially devastating impact of process safety incidents; in most countries it is also a legal requirement. This course describes the processes used to identify, assess and communicate process risks from a safety, environmental or business perspective, from a simple qualitative approach to fully quantified assessments, together with the demonstration that risks are as low as reasonably practicable. You will better understand the principles of inherent safety and their application to existing facilities. This practical course discusses numerous real-life examples that can help establish a safer, more efficient and more profitable plant. A Certificate of Completion will be part of this Training Program.

UreaKnowHow.com now introduces the UreaKnowHow Revamp Guide with the target to guide your through the forest of possible revamp options promoted by the different licensors.
Which revamp option makes sense in my urea plant, what are the references and what are the pay back times?
The Revamp Guide distinguishes the various revamp targets such as Capacity Increase, Energy Reduction, Emission Reduction, On-stream Time Improvement, Product Quality Improvement and Safety Improvement. And also distinguishes between the various plant sections and equipment.
It explains the basic principles of a certain revamp tool and its typical realisation in realising the targets plus defines its major references.

FIORDA – the Fertilizer Industry Operational Risks Database, is created for collecting and sharing process safety and reliability information among participating companies in the fertilizer industry.
How you can benefit from FIORDA?
FIORDA can identify patterns and trends of similar safety and reliability issues based on repetitive problems occurring in the same plant units or equipment and alert operators to the occurrence of these events,
Through FIORDA database, operators can compare the experiences from different plants such as frequency of an event, severity of the outcome and applied corrective actions,
Corrective actions developed by other operators may be less costly than those tried in the absence of this information,
FIORDA members can develop their own internal incidents database using FIORDA free provided software HAZARDO®.
