Petrochemical / Process

We employ experienced Chartered electrical engineers and designers to provide an engineering service you can depend on. Our approach to business eliminates the overheads associated with many larger EPC contractors to provide you with an efficient cost effective electrical design solution.

Our highly experienced engineers can provide FEED study / power system modelling and design services to support your project whether it’s a bespoke solution or making modifications / adding additional equipment to your existing power system.

Minor Projects:

The majority of process plant operators and owners are seeking a low cost base solution for minor project work that does not involve all the additional costs associated with large EPC companies. EPS can help you with a low cost engineering & design for the following typical example projects:

  • Lighting additions / modifications.
  • Trace heating modifications / extensions to existing circuits.
  • Additions to / replacements of UPS systems.
  • Electrical supplies to pump skids.
  • MCC / switchboard cubicle specifications.

In addition to the above work scopes we’d provide modifications / additions to the existing drawings / documents to reflect these changes.

Drawing consolidation work:

Many process plants over the years have undertaken refurbishment or long life extension projects involving the creation of additional drawings that are either no longer required or confuse technicians carrying out maintenance work. EPS can help you consolidate and revise these drawing to assist your technicians:

  • Utilising existing drawings and combine them into one ‘up to date’ drawing e.g. key single line drawings
  • UPS key single line drawings

Specialist Consultancy:

Using electrical engineering software such as SKM Power Tools, ETAP, ERACs, IPSA or DigSILENT our electrical engineers can provide you with a study report for your power system.

Whether it’s a power system study for the entire process plants electrical distribution system or a modification / addition to the electrical system EPS can provide you with the following technical services:

  • Load flow analysis studies.
  • Short circuit studies.
  • Transient Motor Starting Studies.
  • Harmonic analysis.
  • Protection co-ordination.
  • Arc Flash and switchgear risk assessments.
  • Electrical thermal imaging survey reports.
  • Independent project cost estimates.

Equipment documentation:

If you’re looking to replace some existing equipment and require a data sheet or specification to purchase this equipment then EPS can provide this technical service; typical documentation for projects may include:

  • Replacement emergency power generation panel specification, FAT scope, installation work scope.
  • UPS system specification, data sheet.
  • LV and HV switchboards / MCC’s, specification, protection schedule, FAT scope.
  • DC Chargers specification, data sheet.
  • Equipment installation specification.
  • Cable jointing specification.
  • Condition monitoring specification, data sheets.

Additional services:

  • Electrical surveys.
  • Thermal imaging surveys.
  • Energy Efficiency calculations.
  • Factory Acceptance Testing (national and international).

Typical projects include:

Providing cost effective electrical design solutions for:

  • Trace heating design for example additional Pressure Transmitters.
  • Lighting design and power supplies for example a new compound / existing switchroom.
  • Providing supplies to and from new skid equipment.
  • Decommissioning – removing and rerouting power supplies for decommissioned and remaining operational plant.

Installation and supply of:

All of our Chartered engineers have industrial engineering experience. Collectively we bring together Chartered engineers and experienced designers which have many years experience working petrochemical / process plant projects. EPS Chartered engineers are accustomed to the industry standards and practices working to strict EPS quality procedures.
