How DNV GL’s acquisition of a small Norwegian company is changing the risk and consequence software market

In October 2017, DNV GL acquired the small Norwegian company ComputIT and with it the well-established computational fluid dynamics (CFD) code, KFX Exsim. The KFX CFD tool strengthened our market position within the risk and consequence segment. DNV GL now offers a full range of tools for risk assessment and consequence analysis of accidental releases of hydrocarbon or toxic materials, as well as fires. Our risk and reliability and quantitative risk analysis (QRA) software portfolio now ranges from Phast and Safeti, efficient and well-established integral model tools, to the 3D KFX simulator for gas dispersion, fires and explosions.
