    • HAZOP studies for Water/Wastewater Treatment Plants (WwTP) and Package systems
    • Design and Development of Packaged MBR/MBBR/RO Water Treatment Plants
    • Testing and Commissioning of PWTP/WWTP/ETP Plants and Package systems


    Services Development


    Jose’s capabilities and experience enable us to expand our services in the Water Industry to include project and site-specific capabilities in Electrical Engineering and Systems Integration.
    In addition to our standard AutoCAD 3D model capabilities which also includes PFD’s, and intelligent P&ID’s we can also now provide:
    • Electrical Schematics, Panel Layouts, Loop Diagrams, etc. (E-Plan Electrical CAD)
    • Electrical Distribution System Design including Single Line Diagrams (Trace elec-calc 2020)
    • Cable sizing & supporting calculations (Trace elec-calc 2020)
    • PLC Programming & Network Configuration (Siemens, Simatic, etc.)


    Our System Integration services include:

    • Development of process/plant specific control philosophies (with our Process Engineers)
    • Preparation of URS and FDS Documentation
    • Design & Engineering of PLC/HMI Control Systems (hardware & software)
    • Variable Frequency Drives (VFD’s) application & control
    • Networking and interfacing, including MCC, VFD’s Remote I/O, Valves, and Instrumentation
    • SCADA solutions (including Siemens Telecontrol Modems MS Visual basic and OPC server)
    • Configure for energy audit reports and optimized/evolved control philosophies.
    • FAT testing and documentation
    • Site commissioning and system optimisation


    We believe these additional services, coupled with our specialist process and plant design capabilities will be of particular interest to the following sectors:

    • General Consultants (with specific water/wastewater project elements)
    • Design-Build Engineering Contractors (peak lopping, site/project-specific briefs)
    • Industrial Sector, including Pharma, Biopharma, Food, Dairy, Brewing & Distilling
    • Bioenergy Plant Developers and end-users (WEW are involved in an R&D Project for Anaerobic Digestor process control optimisation)
    • Any/all sites requiring WwTP control system upgrades (reduce operator involvement, reduce energy usage, decrease sludge production, improve plant performance)

    If you would like to discuss an upcoming or current project, where we can be of assistance please contact us.
