ESi will represent the plant owner for engine purchase, installation, commissioning, repair, evaluation, design or failure investigation. These tasks often occur while the site owner has expertise outside of engines or is busy operating their facility. ESi can supervise OEMs, service companies, and engineering and construction firms and report directly to the site owner. These projects often include developing the scope of work, setting budgets and milestones, and evaluation of change orders and proposed work.
ESi can manage a startup with multiple equipment providers. Due to our experience as operators, our understanding extends beyond the equipment itself. We perceive the engine system as a whole and are particularly skilled at identifying and solving equipment integration problems.
ESi can manage commissioning of new, recently overhauled, and retrofitted equipment. We provide engine system and operations expertise to equipment owners, construction and engineering firms, and equipment OEMs to ensure a smooth commissioning with accountability.
ESi is able to respond to advanced troubleshooting needs when facilities lack the time, resources or in-house expertise to determine the cause of engine and control system problems. ESI can work with plant personnel or independently.
Many existing engines can be retrofitted with new equipment to meet new system or regulatory demands or enhanced operation. ESi can evaluate your platform for upgrades, design, install and commission the equipment. ESi will also follow up with training and Operations and Maintenance Manuals.
ESi professionals can work with plant personnel or act as the owner’s representative to supervise overhauls or major equipment repairs. ESi will evaluate and monitor maintenance and assembly, ensure parts meet specification, sign off on each phase of the work, and provide ongoing and final documentation packages.
ESi performs root cause analysis after accidents with reciprocating machinery. Our investigation skills combined with our experience as operating and maintenance engineers have proven valuable during investigations.
In time-critical emergency situations ESi will evaluate damaged engine systems to determine the best path to the facility’s or vessel’s return to service. ESi can assemble the variety of experts often needed in these situations to determine a path to success to present viable options to the customer. ESi can lead the efforts to the plant re-commissioning.
From inception to completion ESi can oversee the management, coordination, direction, and progress of engine system work at the construction site. We can maintain a full-time presence at the project site during construction if required.
Acting as our client’s representative, ESi personnel provide the engine expertise to evaluate and make the routine decisions necessary to keep the project on task and moving forward. Our project management support informs the staging of work, evaluate the need and results for change order work, coordinated work and equipment with the facility, and audited overall performance at job completion.
