Six new appointments boost safety capability

Systems integration specialist Hima-Sella has appointed Neil Hibbert (right) as Key Account Manager for Safety and Control, Nathan George as Sales Applications Engineer, John Chadwick as Technical Support Group Supervisor and is currently recruiting three full-time Principal Engineers to boost its existing functional safety management team, based in Stockport (GB).

In his new key account role, Neil Hibbert will focus on safety-related projects in oil and gas and other industries and on safety-critical applications using HIMax such as emergency shutdown systems (ESD), fire & gas systems (F&G), tank overfill protection systems (TOPS), High Integrity Pressure Protection Systems (HIPPS), Burner Management(BMS) and Turbo Machinery Control (TMC).

HIMax complements the existing HIMA range of HIQuad, HIMatrix and Planar 4, is based on HIMA’s revolutionary NONSTOP XMR® technology utilising testing and diagnostics to achieve safety integrity level 3 (SIL 3) and is the only safety system designed to guarantee uninterrupted system operation.

Neil Hibbert worked previously in Hima-Sella’s Technical Support Group. His replacement is new recruit, John Chadwick. John joins Hima-Sella as Technical Support Group supervisor, bringing valuable experience of working offshore in oil and gas operations. For the last three years he’s been coordinating a team of engineers responsible for the overall running of an offshore oil platform.

Nathan George, as Sales Applications Engineer, joins Hima-Sella from AWS Electronics. He replaces John Lunt who retired at the end of the year after 20 years service.

Three, new, principal engineers will join Hima-Sella’s existing functional safety management team, which currently provides technical expertise and support for the HIMA product range. These three posts will enhance the specialist expertise of the current team and enable the company to develop its safety offering to a new level.

Managing Director at Hima-Sella, Ian Wright, commented, “These new appointments are part of our strategy for developing management talent within this business and will significantly boost our capability for delivering some of the most reliable safety-related system solutions in 2010 and beyond.”
