Installation and Commissioning

Installation and Commissioning

We have extensive global experience of Mechanical Safety Interlocks and Process Safety System equipment installation.

Procedures related to installation and commissioning have been specifically defined for each piece of equipment, and all our personnel are trained in planning, and coordination, management, supervision and inspection duties, as well as in instructing and training the operating personnel prior to leaving the job site.

Mechanical Safety Trapped Key Interlock and Process Safety System equipment installation and commissioning is a key part of putting operational procedures into service. If installation and commissioning is carried out carefully using the correct procedures, it is an investment in personnel, asset and environmental safety, as well as equipment serviceability and reliability.

All work scope tasks carried out on equipment is recorded and delivered as a client approved Site Engineer’s Report, which is also filed and held at ENEX Group for further reference if needed.

Installation procedures

A rigid and safe work scope plan is provided, allowing for the existing host equipment to be visually inspected and operationally checked at the time of Mechanical Interlock installation.

An ENEX Group Site Engineer’s main tasks are:

  • Visual and Operational Inspection of host equipment
  • Removal of host equipment parts (without interference or intrusion of the host equipment pressure envelope)
  • Visual and operational axial alignment checking and correction (if required)

Commissioning procedures

Mechanical Interlocks are inspected first to check whether the required parameters are achieved and in the start position. Subsequently, all auxiliary and supervisory equipment required for Interlock operation is checked.

An ENEX Group Site Engineer’s main tasks are:

  • Visual inspection of each Interlock equipment key positioning and host equipment positioning
  • Operational testing, calibrating and key release setup parameters for each individual Interlock
  • Checking the operating parameters of the host equipment and to record any observations
  • As soon as the parameters are set, the correct operational tests are complete and witnessed by the client’s representative, all commissioning work scope is considered complete and any training to the operating personnel will be carried out. The equipment is then handed over to the customer by means of a signed and approved Engineer’s Site Report.
