Project Management Services

Process engineering begins by examining Client's opportunities or concepts and developing appropriate process design solutions, which are then translated into practical and executable scope documents via PFDs, Heat and Mass Balances, P&IDs, and equipment, instrumentation and control requirements as applicable.

Integrated within the IPDS engineering team, the Process Department supports the Front-end and Detailed Engineering phases, and leads necessary process safety reviews such as HazOp and FMEA to ensure compliance with applicable legislation.

Preparation of operating instructions and commissioning programmes through to hands-on start-up support complete the Process Engineering services offered, encompassing all project phases from inception through to full beneficial operation.
