Chemical Plant Commissioning - IChemE Approved
Wednesday 1 - Friday 3 July 2015

Chemical Plant at night

Course details

The course deals with the commissioning and start up of process plants both large and small. It covers many different aspects including the planning and managerial aspects of major plants, the start up of small plants with an emphasis on the technical problems and also dealing with the documentation associated with commissioning.

Typically we find that those attending will be about to embark on their first significant commissioning role and have come to learn from the wide experiences of the course lecturers, all of whom have been associated with start ups themselves. There will be substantial emphasis on tutorial exercises in both commissioning and pre-commissioning.

Course manual
A comprehensive course manual, which has been highly acclaimed by those attending previous courses, will be given to all participants at registration.
