Plant Performance Testing

The purpose of the plant system tests is to ensure that the individual components are integrated to operate on a system level as per the design intent and sequence of operations.

Why is this necessary?

Our test has to demonstrate whether the agreed performance guarantees are met. Such test is not a sinecure, since not all required process variables can be directly measured with sufficient accuracy using the installed plant instrumentation.

Since the plant will never operate exactly on the contractually agreed reference conditions, the performance indicators determined at the actual test conditions shall be corrected to agreed reference conditions, in order to make them usable in the acceptance criteria for the plant take-over, etc.
