Our staff of engineers and technicians is extensively experienced in electrical projects and installations, instrumentation and control, automation and process management. Our goal is to provide the most effective and efficient solutions in terms of cost, security, service continuity, energy consumption and maintenance.

Detailed engineering

Starting from the initial design, either developed by our technicians or by external engineers, we develop the detailed engineering, inspection of facilities and drafting of as-built documentation. We have specialized personnel in the inspection, documentation and legalization of old installations, whose documentation has normally become outdated or untraceable:

  • Electrical
  • I&C
  • Proess mechanics

Turn-key projects

A turnkey or EPC (Engineering, procurement and construction) project is one in which the engineering, equipment supply and assembly are carried out by the same company, limiting the contracting chain in the project to the minimum possible. The advantages of this model are considerable:

  • Better control of planning and compliance with deadlines
  • More agile incident resolution
  • Savings in the acquisition of materials
  • Better Quality control

The key to providing a good turnkey service is having a flexible structure, a reliable network of suppliers and partners and, of course, technical training and deep knowledge of the project.

Our structure and diversification of experiences allow us to adapt to this model, covering the entire life cycle of the project, from preliminary design to commissioning and even, if the client prefers, the operation and maintenance of the facility.

Commissioning

Commissioning is the process of starting, regulating and balancing equipment and systems in a planned manner, and the moment of verifying that the previous design and development phases have taken into account all the variables involved in the process. The duration of the start-up phase is usually directly related to the complexity of the process, so designing an effective and realistic start-up plan is essential.

Stages:

  • Definition of the start-up plan. The temporary planning is verified and approved before starting any action.
  • Sequential implementation of the process phases. In the case of complex processes, an attempt will be made to combine as many phases as the process allows.
  • Preliminary tests
  • Review of supporting documentation
  • Assistance to Quality control
  • Final tests and preparation of as-built documentation.
  • Installation delivery

Machinery adaptation & CE marking

According to current EU regulations, all machines marketed after January 1, 1995 must be provided with the “CE” marking and have the “CE” declaration of conformity. This provision applies to both individual machines and groups of machines that work as a single system.

Whenever an installation is made up entirely of equipment with the “CE” marking, it will be understood that the complete installation complies with the regulations, but if at least one of the components does not have this certification, it is necessary to verify that it meets the requirements. regulations, otherwise the entire installation will not be compliant and therefore should not be used.

La puesta en conformidad de un equipo o instalación es un proceso relativamente sencillo y rápido, aunque siempre en función de la maquinaria o la instalación, y que normalmente consiste en:

  • Creation of a specific dossier for the machine or set of machines.
  • Preparation of a compliance report for security devices.
  • Correction of detected deficiencies: installation of protections or guards, emergency stop systems, etc.
  • Compilation of a use and maintenance manual for the machine or installation.
  • Final report by qualified technician: declaration of conformity.
  • CE marking.

Our engineering department, in collaboration with our GIS and prevention services departments, offers evaluation and compliance services for machines and sets of machines that allow our clients to:

  • Certify old machines and equipment within the current regulatory framework, so that their useful life can be extended.
  • Adapt said machines and equipment to current safety requirements
  • Integrate and connect machinery to complete a continuous process, eliminating access to moving parts, hot spots, etc. that may put the safety of their operators at risk.
