Preliminary design

The objective of preliminary design is to obtain a more exact calculation that takes into account all costs up to commissioning. In this stage of design the engineering details are worked out. The followings are conducted:

  • Final selection of site locations
  • Process design (process flow diagrams and parameters such as operating temperatures and pressures and flow rates)
  • Basic Engineering (geometric dimensions of individual equipment items, design temperatures and pressures, materials of construction, layout of the entire plant)
  • Calculation of plant costs
