Our Engineering activities provide a series of bespoke services that range from consulting and feasibility studies to design, realization and commissioning of turn-key plants.
Technical design expertise and process know-how, specifically in the starch sector, allow us to offer engineering services that provide added value to clients.
Etea Engineering’s expertise is due to the continuous interaction and direct involvement within the Group’s production units, which are characterized by innovative processes and optimized energy use. Our experience as both processor and innovator enhances the engineering services that we provide, especially with regards to commissioning, operations and maintenance of plants.
Etea Engineering has the internal capabilities to manage all of the phases in the realization of an industrial plant and to guarantee that the project’s objectives are met. Based on the client’s needs, Etea Engineering can manage an entire project or work on any singular aspect of a larger project.
Etea Engineering offers technical consulting on issues related to process and the efficient generation and use of energy. Moreover, we perform feasibility studies and provide support for the authorization and permitting process related to projects, managing relationships with the various authorities and/or administratives entities involved.
At the end of the initial consulting/research/ phase, Etea Engineering creates a preliminary design - layout, P&I, preliminary dimensioning, choice of machinery, etc - and contributes to the definition of the investment budget.
In the subsequent phase, our company manages the design execution process, including specification definition and tenders for the various elements of the project.
Machinery and Equipment Supply
In the case that the plant and/or machinery required for a specific project are similar to that in plants or process lines within our Group’s facilities, Etea Engineering may be able to directly supply machinery and parts. While these components, machinery for milling, micro-filtration plants, etc, were originally designed for internal use, they have since been used in external projects and subsequently sold to third parties.
Construction and Commissioning
Upon request, Etea Egineering can participate in a number of activities during the construction phase of a plant. Our level of involvement in a project can vary from coordination of works on the building site and overseeing safety to the complete realization of a turn-key plant. Depending on the project, our services can also include activities related to the start-up of the plant, including testing and commissioning.
