Course Description

This practical and highly-interactive course includes various practical sessions and exercises. Theory learnt will be applied using our state-of-the-art simulators. Plant modifications are an ongoing process throughout the life of any process plant. Reasons for modification include efforts to improve reliability, production capacity, quality, or productivity. Seamless incorporation is the key concern associated with the installation of any new equipment in an operating plant due to the high cost of process downtime. Several steps shall be taken to minimise the risk associated with the installation of new equipment such as hazard and operability studies, project management, development of redundancy plans, and commissioning of the new equipment.This course is designed to provide participants with an up-to-date overview of the start-up and commissioning of Process plants including troubleshooting of the start-up process. It includes the methodology for start-up and commissioning of process plants, which can be used when commissioning a new plant, or for modified equipment in an existing facility, or in a turnaround, shutdown or overhaul scenario. It takes the approach that commissioning is a series of checks and counter-checks to confirm every unit in the process plant is fit for purpose and suitable for operation. During the course, each participant will gain enough skills to anticipate and avoid problems associated with start-up processes. Participants will gain a satisfactory understanding of the commissioning strategy, organizational issues, estimation of required resources, CPM planning, mechanical integrity, troubleshooting, start-up operations, technical inspection, instrumentation/control systems, HSE and other necessary knowledge associated with the process plant start-up and commissioning. Actual case studies from around the world will be demonstrated to highlight the topics discussed. link to course overview PDF
