Our Unique Selling Points

Transparent and traceable

By investigating the present status-quo and the long-term strategies and needs we are able to define the best possible roadmap. By comparing different solutions on impact and efficiency. By making a concise cost comparison. By reporting in a clear, unbiased and objective  format.

Small dedicated team

We are a small dedicated team, with specific expertise. Therefore we are used to collaborate with other experts and stakeholders, for the benefit of the project objectives.

Working with different partners in different projects is enriching our capabilities and enables us to reach the best possible result in an efficient way.

Design skills

We have gathered a vast know-how in a large variety of technologies. Basic design skills are used to produce general arrangements, process diagrams, mass balances for both greenfield plants and plant integration. We know what we are talking about, if not we know where to find the right partners.

Practical solutions

Our services range from remote monitoring, second opinions, strategic consultancy to on site surveys to detect anomalies, to identify process hick-ups and safety issues. Always aiming for practical solutions, clear conclusions and recommendations. If requested we have the capabilities to also implement.
