Linkwood SIL Determination – Diageo


Diageo is the world’s leading premium drinks business with an outstanding collection of beverage alcohol brands across spirits, beer and wine. These brands include Johnnie Walker, J&B, Buchanan’s and Bushmills whiskies, Smirnoff, Baileys, Captain Morgan, Jose Cuervo, and Guinness.


Diageo requested HFL to undertake a SIL Determination study on its Linkwood distillery in Elgin.


HFL undertook the SIL determination utilising on-site meetings and industry standard techniques to IEC61508/11.
HFL utilised its engineers to conduct the SIL determination using our experience perfected over some ten years of working in this area.


The techniques employed enabled Diageo to provide a robust, cost effective approach to functional safety at Linkwood.

“Diageo supplied a good team of people for the Linkwood SIL Determination enabling it to run smoothly and efficiently.”
Phillipp Moss, Process Consultant, Haden Freeman Limited

“HFL has undertaken several process safety related studies for Diageo and has aided the company in becoming a sector leader in functional safety practice.”
Tony McCall, Diageo
