Basic Engineering includes the following activities:

  • Conceptual design 
  • Process engineering 
  • Equipment and supplier selection (main equipment only)
  • Process diagrammes and descriptions 
  • Layout of plant equipment 
  • Preparation of technical specifications
  • Tendering, optaining main quotes
  • Determination of required utilities (power, compressed air etc.) 
  • Preparation of project time schedule
