CCA produces engineering specifications covering the main items of mechanical and electrical equipment in the process plant; focusing on quality, reliability, low operational cost and ease of maintenance. Engineering specifications are produced to cover the main items of mechanical and electrical equipment, materials transport and storage facilities, instrumentation and control systems.
A multi-discipline team will prepare tender documents, carry out the evaluation of tenders received and assist in the negotiation and preparation of main contractor and sub-contractor supply contracts. During the project execution phase we check the contractors’ final designs and drawings, monitor progress of the equipment being manufactured and we undertake workshop tests and inspections when required.
The role we perform in project management will also include agreement of the project schedule to ensure optimum integration of activities with subsequent monitoring of the civil construction and plant erection works.
Our site management team report on project costs and give advice where required to maintain the construction schedule.
Following on from the completion of erection of the production plant our commissioning engineers liaise with the clients’ and contractors staff and monitor start-up and no-load tests on individual items of plant to check and set controls and safety devices. Process commissioning tests of the completed plant are witnessed and any defects in contract performance recorded for correction by the contractor or supplier. Acceptance and take-over certificates are issued on the clients’ behalf upon fulfilment of the design guarantees.
CCA has direct experience of working with major contractors from Europe, North America and China. Our Consultants have executed projects ranging from full turnkey through supply, erection and commissioning and technical support in formats such as EPC (Engineering, Procurement and Construction), EDP (Engineering Design and Procurement) and DBO (Design, Build, Operate).
These consulting and engineering services are applicable to a wide range of cement and lime technologies in a variety of geographical locations.
CCA’s pioneering experience in working with Chinese main contractors as they have become increasingly involved in new cement projects worldwide is available to our clients. We ensure that cultural unfamiliarity doesn’t become an obstacle to successful project completion.
The extent of any assignment naturally varies on a case to case basis. Should Clients want to rely principally on their own resources, assistance can be provided by a small group of experts for consultation. In other situations it may be appropriate to assign us total responsibility from the feasibility studies through all stages of implementation to project completion.
