Process Plant Optimisation & Energy Conservation

Details :

This intensive training course in Dubai will feature the importance and relevance of the constant need to monitor and adjust Process Plant operation to maintain the optimum mode that produces the most efficient results, consistent with safe and reliable operation.

Plant integrity and reliability is the cornerstone of process plant optimisation. For optimisation benefits to be sustainable, production interruptions must be kept to a minimum which requires effective management of degradation processes that affect equipment and systems and effective inspection and maintenance strategies, plans and methods. Plant optimisation can be an effective way to achieve improved profitability without the large investment associated with building a new plant.

This training course will feature:

  • Risk Based Integrity Principles
  • Process Plant Economics
  • Industrial Energy Management Best Practises
  • Implications of Plant Optimisation Activities
  • Energy Conservation Opportunities

By the end of this training course, participants will be able to:

  • Recognize and understand what plant optimisation and energy conservation is
  • Apply the business focus and equip them to make sustainable plant profitability
  • Appraise the most attractive opportunities to identify energy savings
  • Describe the managerial tools needed to effectively optimise plant operations

This training course will benefit all levels of personnel in a process plant environment. It will enable them to understand the design considerations, construction details and operational parameters associated with process heat exchangers.

This training course is suitable to a wide range of process plant professionals but will greatly benefit:

  • Process Supervisors
  • Plant Operators
  • Operations Engineers
  • Engineering and Technical personnel involved in improving process plant, petrochemical plant and refinery profitability and energy efficiency
