Basic Design Services

The basis for a basic engineering project is developed in the preceding conceptual design work. The separation process is examined, making use of the available know-how both in-house or on your side, data from data banks, and pilot tests.

Our expertise and capabilities in scaling up from pilot and demonstration tests to a commercial-size process unit will be brought in to provide you with an optimized design.

The contents of our basic engineering packages typically include:

  • Process description
  • Process Flow Diagram (PFD)
  • Mass and heat balance
  • Piping and Instrumentation Diagram (P&ID)
  • Equipment specifications
  • Instrument specifications
  • Process control description
  • Preliminary equipment layout
  • Preliminary operating instructions

We will adapt the contents of the basic engineering according to the chosen scope of supply, ranging from the delivery of key equipment to the provision of a complete skid-mounted unit.

For the delivery of a basic engineering package, including proprietary key equipment, the level of details in the engineering package will enable a qualified and experienced engineering company to proceed with detail engineering, equipment procurement, plant construction and preparation of the final plant operating manuals.

For the delivery of a skid-mounted unit, for which assembly will take place in one of our fabrication workshops, the documentation will focus more on the utilization of the unit.
