Technology and experience in industrial projects

Feasibility studies, basic and detailed engineering, 3D scanning and electromechanical erection supervision


ENGINEERING UNIT aims to provide effective solutions by balancing technical, financial and economic criteria. Every project takes into consideration client requirements and seeks the best alternative either for feasibility studies, basic and detailed engineering, electromechanical erection supervision or services performed in partnership with other A1 business units.

Most projects are built using 3D model technology, which increases data accuracy and significantly eliminates interferences while also enabling collaborative and multidisciplinary participation of customers, partners and suppliers.

Feasibility Studies and Basic Engineering

  • Conceptual and basic engineering
  • Feasibility studies (technical/economic/financial)
  • CAPEX and OPEX evaluation
  • FEL1, FEL2 and FEL3 studies
  • Project management

Process Engineering

  • Industrial process assessment
  • Support for process technology selection
  • Utilities system design
  • Equipment technical specification
  • Overall mass and energy balances
  • Water and effluent balances
  • Definition of project criteria
  • Hazard analysis (Hazop, APR, What If, FMEA)

Civil and Structures

  • Architecture
  • Drainage, earthmoving and pavement design
  • Piling design
  • Reinforced concrete design
  • Structural design

Mechanical and Piping

  • Tanks and vessels design
  • Equipment technical specification
  • Piping and supports design
  • Piping and valves technical specification
  • Piping stress analysis
  • Standardization of project documentation
  • Layout studies

Electrical and Instrumentation

  • Power generation, transmission lines and distributionsystems
  • Substation design
  • Electrical studies (short circuit, load flow ...)
  • Electrical design of lighting, grounding, lightning, power and control systems
  • Electrical design for hazardous and explosive atmospheres areas
  • Instrumentation design
  • Control and automation systems

3D Laser Scanning


Main advantages:

  • Acquisition of data base by laser
  • Accurate (variation of 6,0mm every 100,0m)
  • Fast (around 12 scan stations per day)
  • Free online viewer
  • Easy checking of consistency with existing documentation and/or drawing
  • Easy clash checking between 3D design and 3D scan 3D photograph (per scan)
  • Reliability on the information and easily checking of new measures without returning to the field
