I have been a practising electrical engineer for more than 30 years.
Over the past 10 years, as a freelance consultant, I have specialised in ATEX compliance and process safety interlock systems.
In  2013 Veritex was launched to provide an independent ATEX & SIL verification service to industry users.

Ger HennessyI have been involved throughout the most intense period of industrial development in Ireland.
Working experience gained in all of the main Irish industries including, chemical , steel, textile, water and of course, 20 years in the pharmaceutical industry.

From the humble beginnings of Irelands first Process Consultancy at JA Kenny & Partners in the 1970s, followed by spells with the PM group and Jacobs Engineering in the 1980s, I went on to co-found the process consultancy Prochem Engineering the 1990’s.

During this period, explosion protection and process control safety have always been a central theme and a main area of interest.

A 10 year posting on a Merck site, provided the opportunity to learn and develop skills from a multinational company with well developed and recognised corporate safety standards.
In particular, Merck’s safety instrumentation standards defined best practice in the pre SIL era.
