Electrical, Control & Instrumentation Engineering

Our engineers deliver electrical, instrumentation, control, and automation systems for new processes, or to integrate into an existing one, across a wide range of sectors each of which may have its own niche requirements.

Our engineers work flexibly with clients, integrating seamlessly as part of a client project team or independently from our head office.
Capabilities include:

  • Power distribution, panel differentiation, cable sizing (using Amtech).
  • Feasibility and Front-End Design Studies.
  • Site surveys of:
    • Electrical and control systems, installations and power generation schemes.
    • Control and instrumentation architecture.
  • Preparation of estimates, both budgetary and detailed.
  • Equipment specification, detailed design, construction and commissioning.
  • Familiarity with all major instrument, control system and fieldbus technology vendors.
  • Site supervision and management of sub-contractors’ electrical/control installations.
  • Factory Acceptance Testing (FATs) and Site Acceptance Testing (SATs).
  • Participation in a range of process safety studies including:
    • HAZOPS
    • Hazardous area classification
    • Specification of instrumentation based on explosive atmospheres (ATEX/DSEAR)
    • LOPA
    • SIL design/verification and functional safety to comply with IEC61508/IEC61511. We can either carry out a GAP analysis on existing systems or design of new installations from scratch.
  • Philosophies for:
    • ECIA systems
    • User Requirements Specification (URS)
    • Functional Design Specification (FDS)
    • UPS
  • Programmable Controllers (PLCs) application software.
  • Control system architecture.
  • Industrial field bus and remote input /output systems applications.
  • Trip and interlock schedules.
  • Distributed Control Systems (DCS), and Supervisory Control & Data Acquisition (SCADA), systems configuration.
  • Electrical schematics & instrument loop diagrams.
  • Power distribution, panel differentiation, cable sizing.
  • Design, protection and implementation of HV, MV and LV electrical distribution equipment.
  • Detailed design of control panels and ASTA certified Motor Control Centres complete with protection requirements.
  • Design of earthing and lightning protection schemes plus lighting design.
  • Engineering and design of surface heating.
  • Retrofitting and replacing control systems on existing manufacturing lines.
