Consulting, engineering and systems integration provider, aeSolutions, earned Siemens SIMATIC PCS 7 Process Safety Specialist certification.
“We are proud that aeSolutions is
the first Siemens Safety certified partner in the Americas,” said Ken O’Malley, president of Greenville, SC-based aeSolutions, which provides industrial process safety, cybersecurity and automation products and services. “This certification validates
our team’s commitment to being a
leader in safety instrumented systems engineering and system integration. Because we often support our customers’ most complex and critical processes we consider this level of competence and certification to be essential to our business.”
To become certified, solution partners undergo a rigorous, multi‐faceted process facilitated by Siemens. A Siemens senior consulting engineer out of Karlsruhe, Germany audited multiple aeSolutions safety projects to ensure their project configuration workflow processes followed Siemens‐documented best practices, as well as international functional safety standards (IEC 61511). Overall, aeSolutions’ engineering team successfully demonstrated their capability to deliver compliant process safety projects using all of the latest Siemens process safety tools (including Safety Matrix).
“As customers require PCS 7 safety instrumented systems, we can recommend aeSolutions, our certified Process Safety Specialist Solution Partner, knowing that they have the engineering and quality practices to execute the project right the first time using best practices,” said Rich Chmielewski, Siemens USA PCS 7 solution partner program manager.
“aeSolutions was able to demonstrate and pass all of the requirements from our partner program to achieve the status of Siemens Process Safety Specialist. This certification provides confidence to the market that aeSolutions can offer quality and complete safety lifecycle services per the IEC 61511 functional safety standard for the process industries along with strong technical expertise using Siemens process safety technology,” said Charles M. Fialkowski, CFSE, Siemens National Director for Process Safety.
