Whether new construction or modification of an existing production plant or optimization of existing processes projects in the chemical and pharmaceutical industry owing to their complex and demanding boundary conditions require profound preparation. This is a major prerequisite for technically as well commercially successful realization of your venture.
The aim is to achieve a high accuracy with regard to feasibility in spite of reduced degree of details.
With us project work begins effectively in the Conceptual Design Phase itself. Within our scope of planning activities we
create feasibility study
work out technical and commercial analyses of process steps and determine the optimal production process
clarification of open points
show elaborate technical and commercial examination
do risk assessment for new untested solutions
analyze, calculate and take account of criteria like quality of location, economic viability and estimated extent of investment costs
fix process parameters and requirements
examine existing process design
work out suggestions for future operation and plant concept
calculate first mass, energy and material balances
create preliminary specifications of most important key equipment
develop concepts for automation and building technology
show possible logistic options
examine infrastructural connections at the future location
examine your existing documentation for applicability in later planning phases
support you in early discussions with authorities to lay out a roadmap
support you in finalizing of adequately defined overall concept ensuring technical advancement
estimate investment and operation costs with a -20 to 50% accuracy
This systematic approach by Siemens enables a dependable basis for your investment decision and with that an important prerequisite for sustained success of your project and its continuation.
The aim in this project phase is to show and to document how far the technical; market and commercial; organizational, judicial and political requirements are fulfilled for a project at the intended location.
At the end of the examination we enable you to take a reliable and comprehensible decision regarding continuation, modification or termination of the project.
The quality of subsequent planning phases is predominantly governed by the quality of the result from the conceptual design phase. In addition it helps in shortening of the project realization phase thus saving time and costs. Leading companies of the chemical industry are already benefiting from this value addition with Siemens as partner by their side.
As a Siemens customer you benefit from the large number of experts that help you find a quick solution for all problems regarding feasibility of your project. Be it investment costs, choice of location or production logistic- we possess the know-how and have access to extensive databases. Owing to our expertise in First-of-Its-Kind plants, we can show and evaluate various process alternatives. This array of competences sets us apart from our competitors- to your advantage.
The Conceptual Design builds a solid foundation for the start of Basic Design.
