Start-up & commissioning for metering control systems

On-site support by dedicated KROHNE engineers

  • Installation supervision for on- and offshore metering control systems
  • Complete commissioning services to assure smooth operation in the field
  • Site acceptance testing (SAT) to verify the system is working as per end-user requirements

startup commissioning metering systems

Metering control systems from KROHNE usually allow plug-and-play operation. Wiring, configuration and testing is done prior to shipment to minimise installation time and risk. KROHNE engineers are available to supervise the installation, start-up and commissioning, both on- or offshore.

Our systems engineers have also completed the training programs for the integration of third-party components, such as PLCs and barriers. Where expert service is required on such third-party products, KROHNE will liaise directly with the manufacturer enabling all services to be conducted under KROHNE co-ordination and responsibility.

Product highlights

  • Kick-off meeting prior to installation
  • Inspection and testing of communication from the field to the control room and ERP system
  • Support by experienced engineers with offshore certification where required
  • Expert service for the implementation of third-party components, fully co-ordinated by KROHNE
  • Cooperation and communication with local metrology institutes during commissioning phase, to meet local custody transfer requirements
  • Trainings and workshops for operators, engineers and maintenance staff
