In close cooperation with the piping and process engineers, we ensure that the existing electrical hardware infrastructure is safe and reliable and evolves with time. We specialise in electrical and industrial safety.

Expanding your production? We help you throughout the project cycle and design the required electrical infrastructure for the production facilities.

What can we do for you?

  • Feasibility & basic studies
  • Making investment cost calculations
  • Power studies and electrical safety
  • Smart instrumentation, analysis and valve specification
  • Design of electrical installations and (ATEX/IECEX ) control and operating panels (in EPLAN P8, IN-tools, Comos, Promis.e or SEE Electical).
  • Furnishing of technical rooms and control rooms.
  • Preparation of construction kits and measuring sheets with which your electrical contractor can carry out the installation.
  • Digitisation, management and as-built creation of your existing drawings
  • EPLAN P8 support, configuration and development to create your ideal EPLAN design environment
  • Commissioning and construction supervision
  • Preparation and evaluation of CE files.
  • Performing risk analyses.

Power studies and electrical safety

Our power department specialises in a wide range of electrical studies, high-voltage projects and electrical safety. The different software packages we use are ALPI Caneco BT and SKM Powertools.
Our services:
Short-circuit current calculations
Evaluation of safety devices and electrical cabinets
Cable calculations (load, voltage drop, indirect contact)
Motor start studies
Selectivity studies
Arc calculations (Arc Flash)

Industrial safety

Our certified functional safety specialists take into account risk analyses of both existing and new infrastructure. Based on their findings, we jointly determine the safety level with which the installations must comply. We then design and validate your safety circuits to ensure that your systems are safe and available.
Process safety

Case study: new tank farm

A client asked us to design and supply the electrical and automation systems for a new tank farm for the storage of acid. The acid product is unloaded from barges and loaded onto transport HGVs and ships. Safety is crucial in this project.

The assignment of our team consisted of the specification of the main instrumentation, engineering and design of the distribution, MCC, PLC, tracing and lighting of the cabinet (in EPLAN P8). The power study, performed with SKM Powertools, took care of the fault-tolerant design of the electrical protections and the distribution of motor cables. The architecture of the ring network guaranteed the availability of the automation systems. The redundant PLC system was designed to combine safety and control signals.

The SIL level was validated with calculations in exSILentia. Because we do not have our own construction team, we engaged an experienced E&I contractor in an industrial environment. Together we successfully started up the installation.

Case study: upgrade PLC system batteries factory

The automation system in the powder department of a battery factory had to be technically modified after 25 years. After inventory and validation of the electrical schematics, we made a new design in EPLAN.
The control of the motor, which were placed in one large board with a length of 12 meters, also had to be replaced.

The available space in the technical premises was limited and we only had one extended weekend of 4 days to carry out the removal, assembly, testing and commissioning. Based on a clear construction file, a suitable contractor was selected. Our team of software engineers, together with the contractor were able to hand over an upgraded and working production plant to the operators on Monday morning.
