 26/03/2019 Evolution of Submarine Cable, Network Design and Transmission Technologies

Joint IET and Engineers Ireland Event

Speaker: Derek Cassidy

Time: 19:00

About this Event:
The submarine cable, first envisaged in the early 1830s was not feasible until the development of a proper insulation system, Gutta Perha, developed in Dublin, enabled the development of the submarine cable used in the early years of telegraph transmission. Soon cable design started to change and this was met with the development of new transmission technologies and Network Design. These leaps in developmental change are discussed along with the development in transmission technology.

 28/03/2019 Advances in Biopharmaceutical Practices
IChemE and Engineers Ireland Joint Event

Speakers: Adam Hawthorn PM-Group
Kevin Gibson PM-Group

Time 18:30 (Tea/Coffee from 18:00)


About this Event..

Over the past 40 years Biopharmaceutical Operations and Processes have seen a number of innovations changing the very shape and functionality of facilities. To benefit from these changes, it is prescient to share best practice and approaches across the sector. Some of the key areas of innovation include both Buffer Preparation and Single Use Technology deployment. This presentation will give a view of the current thinking from international forums such as BioPhorum and ISPE given by practitioners implementing them.

Single Use technology has been a game changer in facility operation and design. Getting the right operational approach and matching that with standard approaches is a key design skill. We will take an opportunity to look back on the technologies beginnings; practice in existing and future facilities, with a review to the latest industry guidance from ISPE.

Buffer Preparation is a key focus area for BioPhorum. The presentation addresses this industry challenge, providing an update on their developments. It includes a significant collaboration taking place between an innovation hub and BioPhorum whereby a prototype Buffer Stock Blending Skid is being developed. The aim is to democratise this technology using an “open source” prototype. Through testing carried out as part of the collaboration, it is expected to demonstrate the benefits of this approach, and drive adoption as an industry standard practice

 18/04/2019 Guidance on Significant Modifications under the COMAH Regulations
Joint Engineers Ireland, IChemE and ISA

Speaker: Pat Conneely, Head of COMAH, Chemical Production & Storage Unit

About this Event:

Under the COMAH Regulations, modifications to notified facilities, processes or inventories require an assessment to determine whether there could be significant consequences for major accident hazards.

COMAH documentation, including the Safety Report, may have to be amended before modification and sent to the Health & Safety Authority well in advance. The HSA has produced a detailed guidance document to explain and guide operators through the process. The guidance sets out the criteria the HSA uses in deciding to allow a modification to proceed (or not) or in referring it to a planning authority.

We would like to provide our members with an overview of the guidance and to assist them in determining what they should do when considering a 'significant modification'.

Time: 18:30 (Tea/Coffee from 18:00)
