POV, Commissioning and Operational Readiness

Statistics indicate that a large number of projects fail because of lacks in the critical phase of commissioning. See how Progesys saves you time and money and gets your plant to operate in optimum conditions.

Statistics indicate that large numbers of projects fail because of lacks in the critical phase of commissioning. See how Progesys saves you time and money and get your plant to operate in optimum conditions:

  • Plan and execute plant start-up in optimum time
  • Teams with proven track record delivering projects from 100K$ to 1.5B$
  • Proprietary software to structure, manage and track progress
  • Use of all POV and Commissioning data for maintenance systems

Get it right from the start

Progesys helps you get your plant up and running so you can start production earlier and generate revenues. We mobilize teams of experienced professionals specialized in pre-commissioning and commissioning of industrial installations. We use our proprietary methodology developed over more than a decade of specialization in commissioning, and our electronic Commissioning Management System (CMS) to deliver best-of-class commissioning services. CMS is an innovative tool that uses the data developed by engineering to define commissioning scope and turn-over packages, automatically generate verification checklists, calculate progress, and eliminate most of paper usage.

Risks

Megaproject failure soaring rate is partly due to poor Commissioning

Many industrial projects fail to meet the objectives of quality, schedule or cost because of lacks in the crucial phase of pre-commissioning and commissioning. The pressure of the construction phase and the project deadlines often reduce the efforts and time required for the Commissioning phase. It results in cost overruns, hindered quality of plant systems and works transferred to owner operation teams, and costly delays in Start-up.

The commissioning phase is often overlooked and neglected among project activities. This is the result of many factors including:

  • Commissioning phase budget is a limited small part of project budget
  • Many project professionals ignore the activities related to that phase
  • Often terms like Mechanical Completion, Pre-operational activities, Commissioning, Start-up, and Ramp-up are not well defined in contracts

Success Factors:

  • Understanding the importance and impact of these risks on the project delivery and the value of the project and operation is crucial
  • Planning early in the process for Operational Readiness including Commissioning
  • Integrate OR efforts and Commissioning planning in the overall project activities
  • Defining roles and accountability
  • Hire the Expertise and Experience required to manage the transition phase (Commissioning Contractor)
  • Deploy adequate systems to manage commissioning activities and operational readiness
  • Prepare and implement a project specific Commissioning and Ramp-up strategy

Our Pre-commissioning & Commissioning services include:

  • Prepare and implement a project specific Commissioning and Ramp-up strategy
  • Define Pre-commissioning and commissioning methodology better suited to the plant operations and systems
  • Identify a pre-commissioning Work Breakdown Structure based on independent systems
  • Schedule Pre-commissioning and Commissioning activities
  • Plan and coordinate vendors representatives’ visits to site
  • Prepare all verification forms and Equipment or Systems test details
  • Identify safety procedures and risks related to site conditions
  • Transfer systems to operation or start-up team
  • Support plant operation team through the start-up phase
