Green field project installation starts with Major civil and structural work , followed by Installation of Equipments, piping, Electrical and Instrumentation installation work . Project management is usually seen racing with the schedule of activities to meet the target completion date .Instrumentation in projects is given utmost importance so that plant achieves enhanced safety , Productivity and Quality.
Project Instrumentation activities mainly comprise of Design, Installation and commissioning of :
- Instrumentation for Main Process Plant with a DCS or PLC based control system
- Instrumentation for Utilities and 3P packages such as Boiler, Thermic fluid Heating system , Bagging plant , Chillers , WTP , ETP etc. usually PLC controlled.
-Communication and Integration of all PLCs with Central control room .
Project team is committed to complete installation in time. However , invariably , very little time is left for Instrument activities such as loop checking , safety Interlocks checking , simulation and process dry run as well as wet run. Any short cut here results into challenging safety and quality .
This tech talk is about understanding these challenges and ways to overcome , so that plant commissioning is done Right First Time .
