WHAT WE DO

ENGINEERING CONSULTING SERVICES

The first step in determining the root cause of any issue lies in a detailed investigation. Using the latest equipment and software, we construct detailed network models to develop an understanding of the failure modes at play in your plant and equipment.

We then design and stringently test solutions prior to implementation to ensure you encounter minimal downtime, rework or failures.  This customised and personal approach enables us to solve the most challenging of issues and ensures our clients receive optimal long-term outcomes.

Feasibility Studies, Design and Design Modifications

Feasibility Studies, Design and Design Modifications

ERM Consulting can undertake feasibility studies, conduct design and design modifications. Generally, the final design can then be manufactured and tested and commissioned in-house in conjunction in our West Australian Facilities.

ERM Consulting has undertaken many feasibility studies, complete with cost estimates to assist the clients in their decision making process and project viability assessments. The feasibility studies generally explore multiple solutions along with associated advantages and disadvantages (SWOT Analysis). Our team can then complete detailed design based on the selected option – including drafting and design drawings.

ERM Consulting understand the need for modification of existing plant, systems and equipment to optimise and or customise plant performance and throughput. Brownfield plant, equipment and system modifications if analysed and conducted effectively will add millions of dollars in value (through better plant performance and or eliminating unplanned breakdowns).

High Voltage Systems and Equipment

High Voltage Systems and Equipment

ERM Consulting specialise in High Voltage systems and equipment. This includes system audits, design / design modifications and condition monitoring. High Voltage systems must be audited from time to time due to the continuous evolution of networks and activity overtime. The regulatory environment around all High Voltage network modifications and new installations sets strict design and reporting requirements. This is managed through a HV Submission Process with the relevant regulatory body. ERM Consulting manages all aspects of a High Voltage network including assisting clients in meeting best industry practice and regulatory requirements. In addition, we assist our clients in identifying and controlling existing and emerging risks using our state of the art equipment to better understand the current state of the equipment. We then derive maintenance strategies to ensure personnel safety and plat production is not compromised.

Although High Voltage Systems are specialised and present challenges, the Low Voltage systems and equipment often present challenges too. This involves safety risks as well as single point failures in processing plants. The energy levels of an arc flash event for instance can present catastrophic personnel safety risks. ERM Consulting has assisted many clients in identifying and controlling such hazards.

Control Systems and Instrumentation

Control Systems and Instrumentation

ERM Consulting specialise in providing operational support, integration and optimisation of all instruments in a processing plant. Additionally, the existing control schemes and philosophies can be reviewed to provide optimal plant performance.

ERM Consulting utilise Management of Change Processes to ensure any recommended changes and bridges do not compromise plant / process safety and operation.

Power Quality

FIND OUT MORE

Power Quality

In recent years, there has been a significant increase in the use of non-linear loads, such as variable speed drives (VSD’s) in mining and manufacturing plants. The result is often harmonic pollution and a substantial deterioration of power quality, leading to sub-optimal performance and premature failures of critical equipment. Examples of this include:
  • Generator/transformer overheating, reduced ratings and performance
  • High Voltage capacitor bank and cable failures
  • Disturbance to sensitive control system/instruments
  • Premature failure of pumps and motors
  • Suboptimal performance of VSDs and premature failure of drive circuit cards
ERM Consulting can assist in improving performance and minimising associated costs through detailed power system studies and harmonic filter design.

Harmonics

Harmonics

ERM Consulting provides comprehensive reactive power and harmonic analysis and filter design. We have extensive experience in the design and construction of low, medium and high voltage reactive power compensation and harmonic filters, including:
  • De-tuned filters
  • Single or multiple tuned filters
  • Damped filters
  • High efficiency C type filters
  • Series connected filters
  • Active Harmonic Filters
These services are supported by our on-site analysis and model development services, allowing site personnel to develop an understanding of issues and provide optimum solutions in minimal time.

Renewable Energy Solutions

Renewable Energy Solutions

Renewable Energy systems have advanced vastly over the last decade with the cost of systems dropping with the increase in economies of scale. Although renewable energy technologies present a great opportunity for all sectors of the economy and industries, they also present some hidden challenges.

ERM Consulting has assisted clients with grid integration strategies, liaison with utilities as well as troubleshooting of systems with sub-optimal performance.

ERM is well placed in the market place to lead renewable energy projects from feasibility to detailed design/construction.

Training

Training

We provide customised training to accommodate any level of operational experience in the field of power quality or harmonics. Training can be conducted in parallel with site measurement to provide your staff with hands-on experience or stand-alone. Our training assists staff to develop their understanding of power quality and harmonics and provides them with the skills they need to identify and mitigate future issues.

Equipment rental
