Plant start-up is another area of expertise for Chemical Engineering Partners. CEP provides detailed hands-on support during the plant start-up. To ensure safety and smooth operation, CEP conducts a simulated start-up with all the operators and engineers. This helps the operation team build confidence in the procedures and the process. The simulated training also allows operation team to better anticipate start-up issues and to properly respond to each situation. CEP provides hands-on support for both control room and field operation. Throughout the start-up, the operation team is encouraged to gain confidence in the procedure and take on more responsibilities. CEP strives to provide operational experience and expertise in order to ultimately enable the clients to independently handle the plant’s operation. This ensures that the operation team is confident and comfortable with starting the plant independently, which ensure smoother operation and turnarounds in the future.
