Company Profile:

IPSS Engineering is an experienced company which can provide engineering from the Basis of Design (BOD) to the engineering, procurement and construction (EPC) phase of a project, and which can complete the project by means of commissioning, hand-over and training. By maintaining a high level of competence in the fields of Process Technology, Process Design/Engineering, Electrical & Instrumentation, Automation and Mechanical, IPSS Engineering is a complete venture for turn-key, complex projects in the bio-chemical and process industry.

IPSS Engineering multidisciplinary teams are familiar with the complete process engineering design of installations to be built for solid materials, liquids and gasses, as well as their eventual (pre)commissioning and start-up. Speaking both from a qualitative and quantitative perspective, our multidisciplinary project teams are also able to substantially improve and optimize existing (production) processes following troubleshooting. During the course of an engineering assignment, the multidisciplinary project teams concentrate predominantly on the ‘Conceptual’ and ‘Basic engineering’ sections of a project (BDEP). They will also provide you with support during the following steps of the project.
