Basic engineering package – Ideal approach

A company contracted for Basic engineering design package adapts it according to the chosen scope of supply work, ranging from the delivery of key equipment to the incorporation of a complete skid-mounted unit.

Only a well qualified & experienced engineering company will be able to successfully execute detail engineering, equipment procurement, preparation of the final plant operating manuals, plant construction etc which ensures a complete delivery cycle of a basic engineering package.

For the delivery of a skid-mounted unit, assembling should take place in fabrication workshops, the documentation should focus more on ways to utilize the unit.
BEP Meetings

The engineering company’s constant contact with the owners of industrial plants is a must during the execution of the basic engineering to ensure:

  • All local conditions and regulations are considered
  • The necessary agreement and understanding on of industrial units chosen technologies is considered.
  • Exchange of information about the actual status during basic engineering performance

Typical meetings:

  • Kick-start meeting to agree on the basic data
  • Intermediate meeting to present & visualize first results and agree on challenges encountered
  • Meeting to present the basic engineering documentation
  • A detail engineering review meeting

Both during and after the execution of a basic engineering project, the engineering company should provide several additional services that are essential to design, construct, install and run the unit.
For example:

  • Supporting documentation for authorities
  • Participating at HAZOP and other safety related meetings
  • Support during commissioning
  • Support during start-up
  • Participation in performance test runs
  • Support for later plant modifications involving issues like de-bottlenecking, capacity increases etc.
