Hydrogen Hazard Scenarios – Scope of Work

PFPNet is examining the performance of PFP and CSP systems when exposed to hydrogen hazards. At this stage in the development of hydrogen as an energy source there are a wide range of potential situations and uses being investigated, demonstrated or developed. This variability has the potential to result in a wide range of fire and cryogenic hazard scenarios that might require mitigation through the use of PFP/CSP materials and systems.

Liquid or gaseous hydrogen will be found at a wide range of volumes and pressures associated with production, storage, transmission, transport and distribution, with many end uses such as power generation, direct firing/heating or as a fuel, and covering onshore, marine, and offshore locations. Before proposing or developing any tests for PFP/CSP materials and systems to demonstrate their resistance performance when exposed to hydrogen hazard scenarios, PFPNet needs to understand what the scenarios might be, and what resistance performance a PFP/LHSP system might be required to provide. With this information:

• Manufacturers and users of PFP/CSP systems can understand what resistance performance a PFP/CSP system might need to be able to provide.
• Any testing to demonstrate PFP/CSP resistance performance will represent realistic scenarios, and the results will therefore have direct applicability to real projects.

The scope of work is to develop a report for PFPNet and its members that will provide data and a briefing to address the above needs.
