Why Choose this Training Course?

Start Up and Commissioning of new plant and equipment presents both a major technical and management challenge. The overall goal of mechanical completion and commissioning is to verify and document that the system is designed and constructed to fulfill its purpose and specified requirements. Life cycle cost principles and safety should govern all decisions and actions during this critical period.

Early establishment of commissioning packages is essential for an orderly and effective project completion. The commissioning plan shall have maximum priority to enable reversed planning in all project phases. All fabrication and installation planning shall be system oriented. Mechanical completion, commissioning, FAT, Preservation and suppliers assistance requirements shall be identified with this program

The initial start-up of any plant, irrespective of size, type, or industry, is a unique occurrence. The necessity of building a commissioning plan is derived from Cost wise, as this will minimize the budget for commissioning activities that will be allocated for contractor. All Companies operation staff is normally involved from day one in engineering phase. If, however, the same team is also taking part in any phase of the commissioning, it will result in a successful project and a reduction in unexpected startup troubles.

This intensive training course gives the participants a full picture of how to prepare themselves to have influential involvement in the commissioning & start up phases. The training course declares the key roles & responsibilities of the commissioning manager & disciplines team leaders to overcome the combination of technical & management challenges existing in that critical phases.

In this PetroKnowledge training course, participants will learn:


Training Objectives click here

What are the Goals?
