August 2018 - Fabri Staff Charity Day

The mechanical and electrical departments got together and arranged a charity day in aid of Crohn’s Disease UK.


To put their skills to the test they opted for the Gourock Yacht Club 2018 raft race across the river Clyde.


A total of eight rafts took part in the race which followed a course along Ashton Prom finishing at Royal Gourock slipway.


Over 100 people turned up to watch the race in which team Fabri came in a respectable second place, but most importantly raised £500 for a good cause.


Congratulations to all that got involved, and a big thanks to all that turned out to support this fun day that will help many people.

APRIL 2018 - SIS Compliance

Our client had recently invested $300 million in constructing a new oil storage facility. During that projects development a project risk assessment (HAZOP & LOPA) had been completed with an output that identified a requirement for 8 safety instrumented functions. During a post project audit it was determined that the applicable international standards IEC 61508 & 61511 had not been complied with and that corrective action was urgently needed.


Fabri Consulting Engineers completed the following work within months of receiving the clients instructions:


SIL Validation

  • Site survey to gather as-built information;
  • Equipment investigation;
  • Complete SIL validation calculations (8 No. SIFs); and
  • SIL validation report.

SIF Design and Management

  • Safety Requirement Specification (SRS);
  • Safety management plan;
  • Complete proof test procedures (8 No. SIFs);
  • Commissioning and verification review and recommendations;
  • Functional safety assessments for stages 1, 2 and 3;

  • Functional safety plan and audit schedule; and

  • Review of deliverables with client and subsequent requested updates.


The client is now undertaking the recommended actions to ensure the Terminal can be demonstrated to be safe to operate.

NOVEMBER 2017 - Quality Management Surveillance Audit

Following the successful transition to the new ISO9001:2015 Quality Management system in November 2016, Fabri have completed their first surveillance visit of the three year cycle.


The auditor representing the independent certification body (NQA) was impressed with our continued use and development of the system well ahead of the transition dead line of September 2018 and as such no non-conformities or observations were made during the audit.
