The delivery of three equipment kiosks during torrential rainfall signified the end of the procurement and build phase of an EPC contract which Technica is delivering for an independent energy client.

The project has seen Technica complete conceptual designs, FEED, detailed design and now procurement and build of equipment which will allow the client to fulfil their exit agreement from the national transmission system at 75bar.

The equipment, built by Technica at our Grimsby HQ included a bespoke telemetry system, intelligent heat recovery control system and both custody transfer and allocation metering systems, E&I control room, Gas Chromatograph kiosk utilising the Emerson 370XA analyser and electrical intake kiosk.

In line with our Covid-19 Secure procedures, the equipment was virtually tested last week and will now be installed by our technicians on completion of the civils and mechanical installation which our construction partners commenced around 6 weeks ago.

Installation and commissioning activities are due to commence later this month and will include the installation and testing of the kiosks, end to end communications testing with the client and the network operator, ME2 validation of both metering systems and SICK 600XT ultra-sonic meters and an ISO10723 performance evaluation of the analysis package as well as the mechanical commissioning of pressure reduction and heat recovery skids.
