PFPNet is a not-for-profit industry-funded organisation focused on raising competency and standards in the area of fireproofing and all forms of passive fire protection (PFP) for the hydrocarbon and industrial sectors. PFPNet is holding a one-day seminar in Houston to provide an update on the activities of PFPNet, and for PFPNet to hear from those involved with fireproofing and PFP what guidance, standards, specifications and training they need.
The seminar has sessions on:
- An update on current PFPNet guidance documents and training courses.
- A technical session on cryogenic spill protection and blast resistance of fireproofing.
- A summary of the session from the 2019 conference on integrity management of old fireproofing systems
- Workshops to hear what locally-based practitioners and professionals need in relation to Fireproofing and PFP
PFPNet is coordinating with the Process Industry Practices organization (PIP) to develop guidance and specifications for fireproofing and PFP that meet industry needs. PIP is a member consortium of process industry owners and engineering construction contractors. The workshops will give attendees the opportunity to voice opinions on what is needed to aid the industry on all matters associated with hydrocarbon/industrial PFP. It will help PFPNet and PIP shape work plans for 2020 and beyond. The workshops will be run for groups of Owners, Engineers, Contractors and Manufacturers.
