SENET’s commissioning approach is based on four basic phases: Pre-commissioning; Wet commissioning; Ore/hot commissioning and Operational assistance period.
The completion of each phase is signified by appropriate documentation, and each phase must be completed before progressing to the next phase. Whilst it is preferable to complete each phase for the entire plant before progressing to the next phase, in fast-track situations, the works may be split into subsections or functional systems.
When the plant progresses as a complete unit, the legal and managerial responsibilities also change with each phase. Where subsections, components or subsystems are used, careful planning is required to ensure the proper shift in responsibility. SENET provides its Clients with a detailed commissioning manual identifying the commissioning procedure, all the test data and record sheets to be used, the commissioning team, and programme.
SENET provides various levels of operational support:
The effective implementation of a strong operational readiness plan is a key component to a successful development project. Project delays can result in significant costs, therefore, focus and attention to operational readiness, dramatically reduces the risk of operations foregoing project deadlines.
SENET’s experienced team can assist in operational readiness in all the aspects of a mining project, with specialised knowledge of preparing processing plants for operations.
