The purpose of the study is to verify the suitability of the positioning of a new control room for plant supervision in relation to the effects of the accidental scenarios contemplated in the plant’s industrial risk analysis (Safety Case).

The study, carried out by means of a specific QRA for the recomposition of risks and reference accidental effects, included the use of a FEM method for the analysis of the fire resistance of the new building and the response to possible overpressures from UVCE and VCE.

The degree of isolation with respect to the external process areas in the event of releases of flammable and toxic vapours was also verified.
