Construction & Start-up

Construction and Start-up are the final phases of the implementation of a Project. During construction all the works planned during the engineering phase are carried out and all equipment and materials are installed and prepared for the operation of the Plant. Start-Up is the activity to be carried out in order to obtain the required product for the first time, from the “oil-in”  up to performance test. Start up mainly includes introduction of feedstock, reaching the operating conditions, reaching of product specifications, reaching of Plant design capacity, Plant alignment and performance tests.

Revamping Projects

Revamping is a special type of Project aimed at modifying an existing Plant, to improve product features, increase overall Plant capacity, usually by replacing any equipment that limits the flow rates (debottlenecking), comply with new environmental regulations, etc.

ATM has a solid and industry-specific experience in revamping Projects, designed to upgrade existing Instrumentation, Automation and Telecom systems.
