The on-site audit of Linde security expert group
Qiangsheng Site Successfully Completed the Starting and Debugging of Acetylene Devices
In March 2016, witnessed by audit experts, Linde REA successfully completed the starting and debugging of acetylene devices in Qiangsheng site of Nanjing, Jiangsu province. After halted by security issues in the last year, the acetylene devices finally passed the debugging test and are putting into operation for reproducing under the rectification among the multi-sector cooperation for months.
Due to the great safety risks existed in the acetylene devices, the Qiangsheng site, which was newly purchased by Linde in Nanjing, Jiangsu, was forced to stop operating in March 2015. Through multi-sector safety risk and business needs assessments, REA decided to have a rectification towards the acetylene devices at the end of October. The Nanjing operation team has fully mobilized and taken positive actions as soon as they received the instruction to restart acetylene devices. Aimed at every identified risk-and-rectification requirement and in strict accordance with EMOC process, Nanjing operation teams, together with Qiangsheng site staff, have strictly supervised operation process to ensure the rectification in place. All the 33 items which were not qualified in the audit system finally achieved rectification and successfully passed the censorship before operation in early March. In March 2016, witnessed by group audit experts, the device debugging team succeeded in starting and debugging devices. David Anderson, the Head of HSE-Q, and Linde Group experts have shown high appreciation and recognition towards the rectification result of acetylene devices and the safe situation of Qiangsheng site. At present, acetylene devices are in a safe and smooth operation state.
All management departments in REA have shown strong support and assistance during the rectification process. In the past few months, several REA management team members, including the RBU Head of REA-Steven Fang, have visited Qiangsheng site and given various guidance and support. Meanwhile at the working level, Shen Dong technical support team from CSCM has provided a lot of specific and professional guidance, many experts also have engaged actively into every rectified technical project and management review.
On the one hand, the successful reproduction of acetylene devices in Qiangsheng site of Nanjing will offer Linde a chance to provide better gas service, on the other hand, the team work spirit of Linde also has been performed fully. In the future, Linde will uphold such spirit to gain greater achievements.
