This course 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 optimization. For optimization 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 optimization can be an effective way to achieve improved profitability without the large investment associated with building a new plant.

This course will focus the following:-

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

Course Objectives

Upon successful completion of this course, the delegates will be able to:

  • Recognize and understand what plant optimization 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 optimize plant operations
