Safety in Asset Management (Public Safety Risk Quantification)
Asset Management in Action Series (showcasing 2022 AM Excellence Awards Submissions)
Date: Tuesday 16 August 2022
Time: 1pm AEST (30 mins)
Speaker: Edward Luk, Asset Engineer, TransGrid
Details: Transgrid has automated the individual calculation of the public safety risk for each of its 38,000 transmission line poles and towers. To improve the calculation of asset risk costs, individual asset component health and human movement data has been used to better quantify the likelihood that people will be in the vicinity of their transmission line assets during various high potential incidents. This approach enables Transgrid to better prioritise and optimise its capital expenditure, design control selection and public awareness strategies. The investment approach target’s assets with elevated probabilities of failure in combination with locations of high criticality to help prevent safety incidents.

Safety in Asset Management (Re-imagining Safety in Asset Management with IoT Technology)
Asset Management in Action Series (showcasing 2022 AM Excellence Awards Submissions)
Date: Tuesday 23 August 2022
Time: 1pm AEST (30 mins)
Speakers: Kevin Chong, Principal Engineer, Rio Tinto  & Dylan Ormston, IoT Deployment Engineer, urban.io
Details: Building on a strong history in safety and asset management, Rio Tinto has delivered an IoT (Internet of Things) technology solution to reduce the number of asset inspection tasks performed by its workers in hazardous environments such as confined spaces, heights, electrical and mechanical related hazards and minimise travel to remote locations. By combining real-time IoT data with advanced data analytics, valuable insights have kept workers informed about the asset conditions along with any hazards that may be present. In turn, it has also created a positive workplace culture that embraces innovation in safety and asset management whilst empowering employees to act and stand up as everyday safety leaders.

Condition Monitoring (Resolving the small bore connection failures in an ethylene cracker plant)
Asset Management in Action Series (showcasing 2022 AM Excellence Awards Submissions)
Date: Tuesday 30 August 2022
Time: 1pm AEST (30 mins)
Speaker: Sundaravel Singaravelu, Metallurgical Engineer, OQ Refineries, Oman
Details: Operations reported failure of Small-Bore Connections (SBC) in Medium Pressure Steam service at 19 barg pressure. SBCs include PG connection, Vent and Low Point Drain (LPD) downstream of a Pressure Control Valve (PV-68A) in Ethylene Plant. An inspection was notified to assess the condition and evaluate the options. A task force was formed after inspecting the site and found that the vibration was a potential cause of failures with more than two failures occurring since commissioning of the plant. It was advised to check the design of the PV against the actual operating condition. Upon verification by Instrument team, Flow Induced Vibration (FIV) was identified as a root cause of the problem with design change request triggered.

In June 2021, TDS with support from Transdev Australasia undertook detailed review and assessed the need to establish a sustainable and fit for purpose and cost effective “resource and competency management system”. TDS has adopted AM Council’s competency framework along with the certification scheme as standard process for continued professional development of staff which provides the incentive to achieve internationally recognised certification and a cost-effective solution to TDS of assured and recognised competency upliftment.

Resilience (Physical Climate Risk Analysis)
Asset Management in Action Series (showcasing 2022 AM Excellence Awards Submissions)
DateTuesday 4 October 2022
Time: 1pm AEST (30 mins)
Speakers: Richard Yee, Joseph Hoang-Luu, James Manton-Hall, and Matthew Timms, Climate Cost Modelling Team, KPMG and TBC from Horizon Power
Details: Horizon Power’s energy network currently powers over 48,000 customers in remote and regional WA. Potential weather event changes due to climate change pose an unknown risk to Horizon’s assets and ultimately to customer electricity supply. Understanding this risk will influence long-term operational and strategic asset management decisions. In collaboration with KPMG, Horizon Power developed a ground-breaking stochastic model to quantify this risk. The model combines catastrophe and chronic weather modelling supplied by Risk Frontiers with energy distribution network dependency and asset restoration modelling. It forecasts financial and non-financial impacts of acute (bushfires, floods, cyclones) and chronic (heat, wind, humidity) risks.
