MALLINCKRODT PHARMACEUTICALS – SWITCHGEAR UPGRADE
When approached about this project we knew it would have to be carried out within a very tight time frame. In order to be as efficient as possible we took on the role of project management, including liaison with supplier companies, to ensure the switchgear upgrade happened in the most efficient manner.

A shut down period was provided in order to carry out and complete all works needed. This involved a lot of coordination between suppliers and contractors to ensure successful installation within the tight time frame.
HOW WE HELPED
After observing issues , we were retained by the Client to provide a full EPCM package. We developed a tender package and issued it to three pre-approved switchgear manufacturers. The competitive tendering process ensured that the project costs were minimised for the client. On award of the project to the winning switchgear manufacturer, we project managed the entire process during a very short facility shut-down period. We successfully managed the construction process, completed commissioning and handed back the facility to the client on time and on-budget.
The switchgear was successfully upgraded resolving the issues we identified on site in a timely, cost effective and expert manner. By taking on the management of the entire project we were able to offer our client a smooth and hassle free upgrade.

”“We diagnosed the issues, designed the solution, project managed the construction, commissioned the systems and successfully handed back the system to a happy client in time for operations to resume at the facility. The tight timeframe for conducting these works meant that we had to have a hands on approach to ensure that the schedule was met.”Michal SopockoEngineering Director
