INDUSTRIAL SERVICES:
Commissioning, Automation, Operational Readiness, Process Improvement, and Modernization.

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, RELIABLE, and FIT-FOR-PURPOSE.

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

ALL SYSTEMS AND COMPONENTS IN YOUR FACILITY will be DESIGNED, INSTALLED, TESTED, OPERATED AND MAINTAINED, FOLLOWING OUR LOGICAL AND CLEARLY DEFINED METHODs.
We implement a commissioning-driven execution strategy, starting with the development of a system-based start-up sequence 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--either on time or ahead of schedule.

PLANT OPTIMIZATION
RELIABLE CONTROLS BRINGS COMPREHENSIVE EXPERTISE IN AUTOMATION, COMMISSIONING, OPERATIONS, AND MAINTENANCE.

We employ 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

INDUSTRIAL PLANT MODERNIZATION

Reliable Controls is focused on helping bring our clients into the new industrial era.

We work side-by-side to implement new technologies and update existing installations to transform outdated plants into fully modernized, efficient facilities. With renowned expertise in Instrumentation & Equipment, Process Controls, visualization, and Global Connectivity, we know how to improve processes to reduce emissions, energy usage, and water consumption. 

We start with a boots-on-the-ground conditions assessment to identify the needs of key stakeholders and develop an order of magnitude and scope of work. We then provide a hand selected team of subject-matter experts to support you in developing a clear concept for your project development, execution, and completion. 

Our goal is to equip you with fit-for-purpose process and equipment controls and provide all the asset management data, reliability tools, and best practices needed to empower effective decision making.

PLANT OPERATIONAL READINESS
We work to ensure that you have in place custom-made procedures, human and capital resources that will ensure a smooth operation and management of assets while transitioning safely and effectively from project to steady-state operations and beyond. Operational Readiness (OR) describes the process of preparing the business to take over care, custody and control of the facility from the project engineering, construction and commissioning teams. We help in identifying all key deliverables and assign them to an Operational Readiness (OR) team for development, implementation, and deployment. We can provide key personnel to support your Project. We employ a proprietary work-flow process to collaborate, monitor, report and track all
