Engineering, Procurement & Construction (EPC)
Clean TeQ Water has extensive experience delivering projects under EPC contracts. All projects are executed under our Quality, Health Safety and Environment (QHSE) System, and we have a range of accreditations and quality assurance processes in place. We have found that our early involvement in the design process greatly increases the rate of project progression, as uncertainties in the feed or final product quality can be addressed early. This also allows an open and trustworthy relationship to be formed early in the project, maintaining communication and building confidence in the solution.
Our design team consists of industry professionals who are all experienced in delivering water treatment projects. The team covers the full spectrum of engineering disciplines to ensure all deliverables of a project can be completed in house. Our typical project team structure is as seen in the image below, with a single point of contact between the client and Clean TeQ Water for quick and clear communication and seamless integration.
During a project’s execution, all engineering judgments, decisions and recommendations are supported by scientific data and calculations. The plant is modeled using CAD software, and piloting of the plant is usually undertaken before procurement and construction of the main plan commences.
Procurement and Construction
During project execution, the Project Manager and Project Engineer are dedicated to procurement and delivery, creating a complete quality management plan at the start of the project. Clean TeQ Water has sourcing staff located in Australia and China, and has good relationships with suppliers in both regions. This allows competitive costs and quality products to be obtained. All of the items procured for the project will be inspected and tested as part of the quality assurance process.
The project manager will be on site during the construction period to ensure the water treatment plant is correctly installed and any issues that arise can be addressed immediately.
Commissioning and Ongoing Support
Commissioning will usually be completed with the design engineers, site personnel, and the construction team. Training is provided to site personnel at this time, with Clean TeQ staff working directly with operators to ensure complete understanding in the process, operation and maintenance. Clean TeQ personnel will remain on site usually for at least a 30-day performance period, working closely with site operators until they have built up sufficient knowledge to confidently operate the plant on their own.
Clean TeQ personnel can visit the plant regularly (eg. every 3 months) to ensure plant performance is optimised. If remote access to plant SCADA is available, Clean TeQ personnel can review plant performance daily and provide direct advice on plant modifications, if necessary, from its head office in Melbourne, Australia. Clean TeQ can also provide a local Clean TeQ representative to be stationed on site for a period of twelve months, to assist in the operation and ongoing optimisation of the plant.
