Invensys Operations Management Introduces Pipeline Management Solutions for 49 CFR 195 Compliance

Plano, TX (PRWEB) May 04, 2011

Invensys Operations Management, a global provider of technology systems, software solutions and consulting services to the manufacturing and infrastructure operations industries, has made available a new pipeline Control Room Management solution that facilitates compliance with 49 CFR part 195.446 and 49 CFR part 192.631, the new U.S. Department of Transportation (DOT) regulation for companies that operate pipelines carrying hazardous liquids and gases. The unique Invensys offering combines open software and services to integrate SCADA information, workflow, alarm handling, training and other aspects of pipeline operations to help owners develop 49 CFR compliance procedures. The DOT is requiring that pipeline operators define these procedures by August of 2011 and implement them by February of 2013.


The DOTs Pipeline and Hazardous Materials Safety Administration (PHMSA) has issued the 49 CFR 195.446 and 192.631 regulations to protect people and the environment from the risks inherent in the transportation of hazardous materials. PHMSA requires companies to implement and document measures that reduce risk associated with controller fatigue; precisely define roles and responsibilities of control room staff; and provide information, training and processes necessary to help fulfill these responsibilities.


With these regulations, the DOT has emphatically acknowledged the importance of reliable information systems and attention to human factors in improving pipeline safety, said Mark Grant, SCADA applications specialist for Invensys Operations Management. Invensys Operations Management is the only automation provider that embeds into a single HMI and engineering platform all the technology necessary to meet the requirements of 49 CFR 195.446 and 192.631. Our advanced products, interfaces, integration capabilities and open technology enable prompt detection and appropriate response to abnormal conditions and emergencies, helping users achieve safety and environmental excellence.
