Commissioning and Startup

The commissioning and startup process begins well before it is time to “turn on the switch.” MWH Constructors is unique in that we employ a commissioning and startup manager from the beginning of the project. Early commissioning activity prevents startup phase delays. MWH Constructors prepares a commissioning and startup plan and updates it as the project progresses.

When the time comes for startup, all parties involved clearly understand their responsibilities. At each milestone in the project cycle, the plan is updated. We work with design staff to develop and use advanced process models to predict and quickly implement the necessary operational parameters to achieve the desired effects. While many projects are plagued by problems and delays during start up, we have found our approach facilitates rapid and successful startup and turnover. The process we use ensures the facility will start when scheduled.
