Course Content

IMPROVING PLANT EFFICIENCY & ENERGY CONSUMPTION

0.5 day

  • Motivations and constraints: energy dependence and regulation.
  • Plant mapping of energy losses. How to improve energy efficiency and implement significant solutions: day-to-day operational improvement, operating conditions optimization, Best Available Techniques (BAT), heat integration (Pinch analysis). Energy management system and standard ISO50001.

FLAW LESS (RE)START-UP

0.5 day

  • Objectives & main rules. Optimize static & rotating equipment (re)start-up. Quality & safety management, cleanliness & tightness. This part emphasizes the plant performance during commissioning & (re)start-up phase.

LATEST DEVELOPMENTS IN ROTATING EQUIPMENT PERFORMANCES
