As part of the first-level package, basic engineering, we develop mass and heat balances. These form the basis for dimensioning the main and ancillary equipment. BMA then uses the results to prepare process flow diagrams (PFD), which show how the individual components and subsystems are connected to form the plant.
BMA records all data in the COMOS engineering database. This is the central source of information for all engineers working on a project. It provides access to the latest project data at any time.
In the next step, we develop a layout concept for positioning the plant components in the main building and draw up the relevant plans. Now there is sufficient information for describing the items of equipment in more detail. We write specifications, which are needed to request prices, terms of delivery, and technical equipment details.
At the same time, we work on the process description, which will form the basis for automation of the plants by our automation experts. It defines the role of each major piece of equipment, as well as the rules for safe and smooth operation and for monitoring.
