Engineering & consultancy

Process engineering is the understanding and application of the fundamental principles and laws of nature that allow us to transform raw material and energy into products that are useful to society, at an industrial level.  – It is this definition that best describes the passion I have for this profession. It’s a creative job and a truly exiting field of work.

From conceptual, basic or detailed engineering support to commissioning, start-up or acting as an engineer in your own team: here’s what BM Process Management can do for you.

Process engineering & consultancy

From conceptual idea to the final delivery of a project or an installation: in each phase different approaches are needed. I can help you develop your scope, find the right solutions with your best interests in mind at all times. With extensive experience in brownfield projects, the existing process, cost efficiency and continuity of production are logically paramount in any scope development. Oil, gas, chemicals, food…no matter what your business, the principles of process engineering are much the same. Moreover, thinking outside the box by implementing clever solutions from other industries can deliver unexpected results and benefits. Results, not just deliverables.

Process engineering services include:

  • Process flow diagrams
  • Process & Instrumentation Diagrams (P&ID’s)
  • Hydraulic calculations
  • Pump layout and design
  • Relief valve studies
  • Heat- and mass balances
  • Process descriptions
  • Heat exchanger calculations & design

Contact me for more information and a discussion on your subject.

Process control engineering

The saying goes ‘power is nothing without control’. For a process it’s much the same: a process is useless unless it is controlled in the right way. The process control philosophy is at the focal point of all subjects: Physics, chemistry, mechanics, safety, operations have to be brought together in a successful manner.

BM Process Management can provide you with support:

  • Process descriptions
  • Process control narratives
  • Functional Design Specifications
  • Review and update of process control documentation

Owners engineer

As an owner’s engineer I can help you focus on your core business. Owing to extensive experience on all sides of the table, BM Process Management will act to protect your interests in projects when dealing with suppliers, consultants and (engineering-)contractors.  Fill the gap in your team and deliver projects with success.

Tank storage engineering

Historically, process engineering is a field that has not gotten the attention it needed in the tank storage industry. Some of the points that require process engineering input:

  • Layout and design of new tank storage facilities
  • Definition of pumping systems, capacities, line sizing, water hammer
  • Layout of jetties, rail- and road loading facilities
  • Tank overfill protection
  • Control philosophies
  • Vapor handling- and transportation infrastructure
  • Emission treatment systems (air and water)
  • Utility and power systems (water, compressed air, nitrogen, steam)
  • Process safety in tank storage
  • Development of operational manuals and training systems

Whether as a designer, consultant or as an external reviewer: take on board an engineer who truly understands your business from start to finish.

Peer review, second opinion & due diligence

When a project is being engineered, it is common to conduct several stages of design reviews. Do you require specialist input on subjects, or do you just wish a fresh look on the solutions you have in mind? Require expert input as part of a due diligence to see if your investment is a safe one? That is a very good idea! New insights can be useful and so can confirmation of the path chosen.

Total process integration

You have to deal with several suppliers that deliver equipment as packages. This often is the case in the food other less ‘engineering heavy’ industries. But how to integrate this equipment into a complete and working process? How to divide responsibilities? How do you make sure every supplier knows what to look out for, so his equipment fits the other parts in the chain?

BM Process Management provides you with the consultancy and hands-on expertise to make the integration work. Without the involvement of large-scale project teams.

Operational training

Operations is the key to your success. No matter how well the project is executed, if the handover to operations is not done well, the end result will suffer.

Operational involvement in projects is of importance to obtain buy-in as well as key information. After the project development and execution, the handover and training are next on the list. Mostly the OEM manuals for equipment are not readable or useable in day to day operations.

With a hands-on and pragmatic attitude BM Process Management can help you deliver clear results. From involving operational staff in a project to translating OEM manuals into handbooks, topped off with an interesting and fun training.

Multidisciplinary projects

Next to process engineering, other disciplines can be added to meet your needs. With a network of trusted strategic partners, a team can be developed that exceeds expectations.

  • Piping & vessel engineers
  • Electrical and instrumentation engineers
  • Process safety experts (SIL, ATEX)
  • Automation engineers
  • Commissioning and start-up experts
  • Maintenance technicians
