Process Plant Start-up, Commissioning & Troubleshooting

Introduction

Start-up and commissioning of new process plant or refurbished process plant presents both technical and management challenges. The start-up of plant is always a unique occurrence, and lack of experience in dealing with related snags will result in commissioning delays and financial loss. Successful commissioning of process plant involves all the activities from preparation to post-commissioning. Unanticipated events during start-up & commissioning, along with inherently hazardous conditions, require extra preparation and effort to avoid safety incidents.
