Electrical, Control and Mechanical Engineering Contractors

  • Commissioning support

Proconics does offer commissioning supports for both electrical and instrumentation projects. Some of the
projects that we have offered our Commissioning supports services are:

> Jindal’s coal gasification facility, India

Proconics South Africa was contacted to provide instrumentation engineering and design expertise to support
Jindal Steel’s new coal gasification plant at Angul in the province of Orissa in India. The project was facing
some unique issues and, thanks to having worked on a similar plant on a much larger scale for Sasol in Secunda,
Proconics was able to provide an incredibly strong team that had the right skill sets to resolve the situation
and ensure that both the construction and software parameters were met effectively

> Medupi Power Station

Proconics is a leader in converting data from disparate sources (flat CAD, engineering tools) into Intergraph’s
SmartPlant Instrumentation and SmartPlant Electrical database driven automated engineering tools. Due to our
expertise in this field Proconics has been approached by a client to convert a very large amount of data (in
excess of 250 000 documents) into SPI format. NDA’s prohibit further details to be shared.

> C2+ Recovery Project, Sasol Secunda 

The C2+ recovery project recovers heavy hydrocarbons from a natural gas stream. Proconics designed the control
and shutdown systems and software as well as all analysers and Fire and Gas detection systems for a large
international EPC contractor as a subcontractor. The project duration was approximately two years.

> Boiler control system replacement, Sasol Secunda

The replacement of complete distributed control and energency shutdown systems of 17 boilders and the 
upgrade and replacement of associated switchgear and UPS systems. A combination of contracting strategies
were used on the various portions of the work – from engineering only to complete engineering, procurement
and construction.

> 1-Octene Train 3 EPC project, Sasol Secunda

Proconics was appointed by Sasol  as Project Engineers on the 1-0ctene Train 3 EPC project (overall value>
R 1 Billion) and were given the responsibility for the entire Electrical Scope of work that included but was
not limited to: Project management, Basic Engineering and Design, Detailed Engineering and Design, Equipment
Specification, Factory Acceptance Testing, Site Acceptance Testing, Site Support, Handover Documentation, DCS
and Interfacing between Electrical and Instrumentation
