Additionally, set up of all control valves, isolation valves, and sensors, programming of numerous equipment interface computers, testing/verification of proper sequencing, connection of these valves and interface computers to main PLC and HMI (large master computer). Testing/verification of proper flows and capacities of support refrigerant pumps, water pumps, glycol pumps, chillers, condensers, evaporators, vessels, separation vessels, expansion tanks, level controls, pressure controls, etc.
The Commissioning Engineer is the lead person responsible for the safety of the entire commissioning and support team onsite first and foremost. They are then responsible for the proper operation and verification of this process to ensure the safest and the most energy efficient operation of the newly started plant. Commissioning teams have between 2 and 12 engineers and support members onsite during this process. Depending on the size of the industrial refrigeration systems these plants can take days to months to commission. Team members rotate out for breaks on large projects every 10 days for 4 day weekends. During these rotational breaks on large projects the responsibilities rotate to different members of the team and goals are set by Commissioning Engineer. The commissioning engineer assumes complete and total responsibility of the project while delegating tasks to members of the team to handle different parts of the commissioning process and its implementation. Commissioning Engineer will be responsible for the training of customers in the operation and engineering of every newly started refrigeration plant. Our plants are as exciting and complicated to start up and commission as a nuclear power plant or launching the space shuttle!
