Installation & Commissioning

Whether upgrading old controls or starting up a brand-new process, a smooth and efficient onsite transition with minimum downtime and new systems in production on time is essential to any business investment.

Our control systems are built and factory tested as far as is practical, so all should be good to go. However, our experience in planning and methodically implementing the installation and commissioning phase is critical to avoiding and dealing with the unexpected so avoiding expensive delays.

With decades of experience commissioning projects across the world, both onshore and offshore, the Finesse installation team are adept at working within time critical windows. When the design and build of the electrical control systems has taken place with Finesse, this gives our clients the added peace of mind that the team knows the equipment inside out.

Handing over the commissioned equipment, our engineers will guide your team through a methodical step-by-step approach, to ensure clear understanding of the equipment’s capabilities, showcasing correct procedures to ensure efficient and safe operation.
