SERVICES:
Automation, Commissioning and Optimization

Our purpose is to help you meet your project’s goals by providing the best talent, processes and methods available anywhere. Our clients range from global industry leaders to small companies with big ideas. We will adapt to your needs and add value to your projects from concept through operations with a focus on safety, quality and productivity.

PLANT AUTOMATION
WE WORK SIDE-BY-SIDE WITH OUR CLIENTS TO ENSURE A SYSTEM THAT IS ROBUST AND RELIABLE.

Our rigorous quality management system is built for heavy industry automation and modern technology. Our engineers have expertise in a variety of process control platforms, including Rockwell, Siemens, Modicon, DeltaV, ABB and more.

Whether you are modernizing your existing system or engineering a brand new facility, we have the experience to design the architecture, controls strategies, programming standards and control narratives. We design high-performance operator screens, implement an efficient alarm management system, develop the programming logic blocks and perform the system integration, including thorough and documented factory & site acceptance testing (FAT & SAT). We also provide expert on-site support from Site Acceptance Testing through Operations, including training. We tackle small, midsize and large process systems with over 10,000 I/O.

PLANT COMMISSIONING

WE ENSURE ALL SYSTEMS AND COMPONENTS IN YOUR FACILITY ARE DESIGNED, INSTALLED, TESTED, OPERATED AND MAINTAINED FOLLOWING A LOGICAL AND CLEARLY DEFINED METHOD.

We implement a commissioning driven execution strategy, starting with the development of a system-based start-up sequence and plan. This guides a thorough hand-over from construction completion and pre-operational testing to cold and hot commissioning.

We employ proven methods for a safe, precise, consistent and documented process. Our detailed procedures and work-packages allow for early discovery through the inspection and testing of every operational module of the project. The result is the steady-state operation of every process, utility and ancillary unit, that is either ahead of or on schedule.

  • Logical Start-Up Unit definition and sequence
  • System/Sub-System definition and boundaries
  • Construction turn-over/hand-over sequence
  • Activity definition and resource allocation
  • Work Packages for all Commissioning Stages
  • Vendor and Contractor Management
  • Pre-Operational Testing
  • Cold (Wet) Commissioning Testing
  • Hot Commissioning (Start-Up)
  • Deficiency Management (Punchlist)
  • Ramp-Up Planning & Support
  • Systemized Turn-Over Packages
  • Performance Testing Support Training and Mentoring
PLANT OPTIMIZATION
RELIABLE CONTROLS BRINGS COMPREHENSIVE EXPERTISE IN AUTOMATION, COMMISSIONING, OPERATIONS, AND MAINTENANCE.

We have a practical approach in performing full life-cycle analyses and detailed process control and operational assessments. This allows us to provide solutions for process control optimization to increase production throughput and optimal recovery while improving energy use, water efficiencies, and waste control.

We perform detailed on-site assessments of all process control components, existing control strategies, all regulatory control loops, equipment controls, and vendor package interfaces. We then provide a clear roadmap for improvement.

  • Process Safety Management (PSM)
  • Instrumentation and Control Improvement
  • Equipment Performance and Diagnostics
  • Plant Assessments and As-builts
  • Operator Training and Mentoring
  • Upgrades and Modernization Network and Infrastructure Improvement
  • Alarm Management Optimization
