RTW >Engineering Services > Equipment Checkout
The installation for each piece of equipment is thoroughly checked out by the contractor, engineer, and manufacturer prior to plant startup. The manufacturer's authorized representative is required to satisfactorily complete checkout, testing, and startup of each individual piece of equipment. A comprehensive startup schedule with submission requirements is prepared for the owner's review. This startup schedule includes the proposed schedule for training operations personnel.
Tetra Tech RTW generally recommends training personnel before substantial completion, during equipment startup, and during initial operations while the manufacturer's authorized representative is on site. The manufacturer's representative provides field services during the checkout and startup of the equipment. These individuals offer specific training relative to preventative maintenance, operation, troubleshooting, and repair of their equipment. The number of hours and scope of the training sessions are determined based on the complexity and type of equipment.
