PDO Qarn Alam Power Station Phase 3 Commissioning

The power station was a 250MW simple cycle. Our engineers supported PDO in managing the third party interfaces to ensure all the equipment, subsystems and switch boards communicate and function as per specification through DCS system to the central control room.
Our engineers commissioned systems such that they conform to the design specifications in a safe manner. We produce and work to approved commissioning procedures and take accountability for delivery. Our commissioning services have been delivered at the tail end of project construction.
