Kenexis is an independent consulting engineering firm that provides technical safety services for process industries, and other industries that manage risks related to chemicals or stored energy.

Our services, and the best-in-class software that we have developed and use to perform these services fall into four categories.

Safety Instrumented Systems (SIS) – including SIL Verification, Safety Requirements Specifications (SRS), Test Plan Development and Optimization, Validation, Verification, and Functional Safety Assessment – primarily using our Vertigo™ SIS Lifecycle Management Software, and Open PHA™ HAZOP/LOPA Documentation Software.

Process Hazards Analysis (PHA) – including a full range of facilitated/workshop studies like HAZOP, LOPA, HAZID, and a full-range of auditing – primarily using our Open PHA™ HAZOP/LOPA Documentation Software, and Open Audit™ Documentation Software.

Quantitative Risk Analysis (QRA) – including a full range of fire, explosion, and dispersion modeling using gaussian, analytical equations, and computational fluid dynamics (CFD) techniques, facilitating decision making for facility siting, permitting, and special analysis of high-risk scenarios.

Fire and Gas Mapping (FGM) – including risk analysis for performance target (coverage) and fire and gas system (FGS) mapping for detector coverage quantitative assessment – primarily using our Effigy™ 3D Fire and Gas Mapping Software.

Our consulting engineering services, software, and training focus on safe, secure, and reliable operation of the process industries.
