Greenville, SC –August 11, 2021 -- aeSolutions®, a consulting, engineering, and systems integration company that provides industrial process safety and automation products and services, announced today that the company has once again earned the Siemens SIMATIC PCS 7 Process Safety Specialist Certification. aeSolutions is the first Siemens safety-certified solution partner in the Americas, the first to renew in the Americas, and currently has the most certified engineers in the Americas. aeSolutions remains the only company in the Americas to hold this certification.
“By attaining this second certification, and as the first and only Siemens safety-certified solution partner in the Americas, aeSolutions continues to prove our commitment to leading the industry in safety instrumented systems engineering and system integration,” states Ken O’Malley, President of aeSolutions. “We are proud to offer this level of competence and certification and consider it essential to supporting our customers’ most complex and critical processes.”
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 project configuration workflow processes followed Siemens-documented best practices, as well as international functional safety standards (IEC 61511). Overall, aeSolutions’ engineering team successfully demonstrated the capability to deliver compliant process safety projects using all of the latest Siemens process safety tools, including Safety Matrix.
As a Siemens certified solution partner, aeSolutions receives software licensing and is trained on the latest technologies and best practices to ensure future-proof solutions. As part of the training, aeSolutions’ lead engineers participated in an expert course to reinforce best practices. In addition, aeSolutions will participate in continuous education efforts via Siemens webinars and Partner Portal for existing and new innovations; and will have priority hotline support, as well as consulting time with Siemens senior product management, application engineers, and advanced proposal tools.
“In earning this second certification, maintaining its status of Siemens Process Safety Specialist and continuing to execute successful projects, aeSolutions has demonstrated that they have the engineering and quality practices to implement PCS 7 Failsafe systems correctly the first time utilizing best practices. Using Siemens process safety technology means that aeSolutions can confidently offer its customers quality and complete safety lifecycle services per the ISA/IEC 61511 functional safety standard for the process industries,” says Rich Chmielewski, Siemens USA DCS Solution Partner Program Manager.
