Ausenco’s consulting services for new plants include technology evaluations, preliminary economic analysis, process designs, process simulations, preparation of heat and material balances, development of block flow diagrams and process flow diagrams, plot plan development, RAM analysis, capital and operating cost estimates, and project schedule preparation.
Our rigorous analysis of technologies allows us to provide valuable feedback on areas of risk and how to modify designs to improve operability and reliability. We support owners’ business development groups by developing process flow diagrams and heat and material balances. We set up and run economic models and prepare high-level capital and operating cost estimates to identify operating risks and support contract negotiations. We also evaluate new technologies for owner companies and investors, including working with licensors with both proven and unproven technologies.
Our pre-feasibility and feasibility studies consider a variety of elements to ensure no stone is left unturned to discover the prospects of success including:
- Historical background of a project
- Development of the technical concepts for the project
- Detailed description of the product or service
- Financial data including account statements
- Details of operation and maintenance
- Policies and legal requirements.
