Lightning Protection Risk Assessment Sigma

January 27, 2021

Lightning Protection Risk Assessment is the measure of the risk of a lightning strike and the probability of damages. It assesses the lightening risks to the facility according to international standards requirements. The likelihood that your facility will be facing a lightning strike depends on several factors, such as the height of the structures, location, temperature, and humidity. If all the factors are just right, even areas with infrequent thunderstorms can experience rare, but high intensity, lightning strikes.

This unprecedented lightning can have devastating effects on any operation, whether taking a direct strike or being subjected to the secondary effects from nearby strikes. Lightning can not only damage sensitive electrical equipment. And also due to the huge inventories of flammable substances in oil & gas, chemical, petrochemical, pharmaceuticals and other process facilities, lightning could lead to fires.
