- Process Operation
- Duration : 5 days
Outcomes: At the end of the Training delegates will be able:
- Plan and prepare for plant start-up after shutdown.
- Prepare and isolate a process Plant.
- Manage Plant start up after shut down.
- Identify and control health and safety hazards in start up.
- Contribute effectively to planning and execution of Commissioning
- Troubleshoot start-up problems.
- Develop relevant operating and safety Procedures.
- Address Technical Issues of Commissioning and starting up various equipment (Pumps, Compressors, Heat exchanger etc.)
This program addresses the needs of a diverse audience with an interest in Plant Start-Up and Commission, including: Operators and Maintenance Tech. with direct line responsibility as well as staff support responsibility for delivering on effective Plant Start-Up and Commissioning activities; Supervisors and Engineers, both operations and Maintenance who are involved or likely to be involved in Plant Start-up and Commissioning situations.
