Welcome to my commissioning website, I do hope you find your visit interesting and useful.
I very much hope the message relating to my vision demonstrated the passion I have for success in the commissioning of processing plant, indeed trying to perfect this process has been the principal driver for my working life to date.
From a mile high viewpoint (and not wishing at all to sound complacent) I care not what goes through the pipes, tanks and equipment that make up a process, however I do care passionately and I strongly believe a logical, structured approach to correct commissioning practices will help transform any plant system, on any duty, into a production unit operating safety, effectively and fully delivering to its design intent within all time and cost constraints.
33 years of commissioning knowledge, combined with a burning passion and desire to realise my vision that all plants can be successfully started up first time, provided me with the driver for the creation of my book and website, so I may share my experience with others about the commissioning process.
The chemical and its related industries have looked after me very well throughout my career. I personally felt it was time and I was therefore compelled to try and give something back to the industry that I very much care for, the resultant handbook is the product of that desire. I therefore truly hope this work will contribute in some small way to successful commissioning delivery in any part of the world and to any individual or company that needs it.
Enjoy the website and the hopefully the handbook; I trust you will find them both informative and useful.
Take care, stay safe and happy and successful commissioning to all!
