Conference paper


Traditional techniques of risk analysis have been fitted for the application to combined cycle power plants and the results of several studies are here presented. Although these plants are not normally concerned by the application of the Seveso II Directive, they are characterized by a certain degree of dangerousness and it is worth deepening the comprehension of their risk figures.
