Start-Up and Commissioning

The design, procurement and construction of a project is of little value unless the appropriate commissioning procedures are followed. They must be started during the design phase to assure that the startup can be easily accomplished. The training of the Owner’s personnel is just as critical as any other activity. EFFECTIVE PROJECT CORPORATION understands the special considerations that must be employed in a successful commissioning of a facility.
