Project Engineering return to top

AGM Process Engineering differentiates itself from other groups by the extensive project engineering experience of its process engineers. This provides them with the ability to produce improved designs for lower capital costs. It also allows them to provide accurate project cost estimates and to procure major equipment items.

AGM Process Engineering has been responsible for project engineering in many specialist areas. These include project engineering for vessel internals (A$1,500,000) and heat exchangers (A$900,000) for the BP Grangemouth FCCU Restart Project. AGM Process Engineering has also executed small turn key projects employing all engineering disciplines through established relationships with partner organisations. AGM Process Engineering also has established relationships with construction companies to offer a full project service if desired by the client.

Drafting Services return to top

AGM Process Engineering has found significant benefits in coordinating the drafting for process design purposes. This specialist area has allowed AGM Process Engineering to offer its own process drafting services.

Heat Transfer Services return to top

Through AGM's experience in project engineering and TEMA heat exchanger procurement, AGM has developed expertise in heat exchanger thermal design. This design capability enables projects to provide defined exchanger designs prior to procurement. This approach to exchanger procurement not only provides the client with the security of thermal performance but provides significant benefits in reducing costs of heat exchangers. In addition, this level of expertise makes AGM the perfect asset for operating companies to review underperforming exchangers and suggest improvements to operation.
