KVAERNER (JOHN BROWN) E&C B.V. ZOETERMEER       -      Engineer instrumentation
For the de-bottlenecking of the CDPP plant at SHELL PERNIS there were a number of items which could be seen as individual project ranging from 40 to 200 engineering hours.
For most of the instrumentation items new equipment of special materials were required and most drawings, esspecially the layouts were out of date.
Finding the correct drawings and field survey were the first activities together with design. Calculations for flow and valves, writing new instrument requisitions and evaluation of the quotations was another activity. Preparing detailed construction description (Bouw opdracht) with clients construction supervisor was the final activity for each item.
In between, meetings with the project-team and client, were a weekly event.

COMPRIMO ENGINEERS & CONTRACTORS B.V. AMSTERDAM      -      Engineer instrumentation - safeguarding - control
For the revamp of the SHELL PERNIS refinnary under the name PER+, Shell intensivide the use of control/safeguarding naratives. The first task was writing these Instrument Safeguarding Narratives for a the Demin Water Plant, two (2) existing Gas Turbine Generators with Waste Heat Boiler, Water Pump House 3, three (3) Instrument Air Compressors.
After the naratives review and approval by proces the engineering of the functional logic diagrams to meet requirements as described in the safeguarding narratives was performed with the use of job typicals as layed down in the Job Instruction Manual.
Implementation and complete configuration for software and hardware in the FSC system of Pepperl+Fuchs (SMS) with pre-tests in simulation mode witnessed by the main contractor. For the Man machine Interface, the visualisation databases and LCD requests for DCS configuration were prepared and crosschecks done to eliminate mistakes and typing errors.
After factory complilation of the safeguarding PLC's, the system FAT was performed with simulation testboxes (switches + lights) to check the functionality of the logic.
After shipment to the DCS vendor an integrated test was performed to verify the dynamics and operator interfaces and graphic behaviour.
Later at site the SAT for completed safeguarding systems were performed and commissioning for some of these units.
For some of the replacements Instrument Requisitions and call-off orders in agreement with the Job Instruction Manual and umbrella contracts were prepared for purchase.
