What are the challenges in commissioning a project?

To predict the desired outcome of project during commissioning stage is a big challenge for owners and operators. The performance of operations of the project is key to achieve financial success. Owners and operators need to ensure that the project reaches its guaranteed operability for all important and critical factors like performance, safety, traceability, reliability and quality. So many vendors are involved in a project, when it goes to the commissioning stage, all the multiple equipment, systems and controls come together to operate in a synchronized manner. Any lapse in quality and reliability can prove to be detrimental for the startup of the project. The operating costs can rapidly escalate if the vendors do not meet the contractual conditions and this results in a delay in the plant startup. Hence, for day to day operation it is important to establish an efficiency baseline for major equipment and to rule out all possible reasons for increased operation costs due to losses. In order to achieve a successful startup and sustained operation, it’s important to deploy the right professional experts to supervise the project commissioning, delivery and synchronization.

Why are commissioning services important? 

The secured, planned and systematic handover of a plant or unit from the constructor to the owner or operator is called the commissioning stage of a project. Important tests like performance test and final acceptance test along with commissioning supervision provides a means for owners and operators to attain maximum efficiency and reduce operating costs. It helps identify any shortfalls in the efficiency and capacity of the plant and suggests recommendations for recovery. It helps to minimize risk of equipment and system failure and boosts productivity. These tests ensure that your operating costs are curtailed, and the productivity continues in an unhampered manner as the risk of unplanned shutdown is mitigated.

What do integrated commissioning services involve?

  • Final Acceptance Test – TÜV SÜD carries out independent evaluation of Final Acceptance Test (FAT) during the commissioning phase to demonstrate completion of the plant, as well as correctness and high quality of work. This involves review of design, labelling of equipment and visual inspection of the facility. The results of the FAT are then presented in a detailed report. 
  • Performance Guarantee Test – TÜV SÜD reviews test procedures and programmes for verification of contractual guarantees, executes acceptance tests and measurements in compliance with the requirements of international codes and standards. We also perform computation and evaluation of performance test measurements. Our reports on test measurements include statements concerning the fulfilment of guarantees. We also offer measurements and evaluation of condition after retrofitting, as well as periodic measurements and performance monitoring.
  • Commissioning Supervision – Our experts are deployed to supervise commissioning activity at site and to ensure all equipment, systems and controls are synchronized properly. Our experts ensure trouble free startup of operation.
