Commissioning and Handover
To finish the object and hand it over to the client is the aim of
every project, but at the same time it is the most critical phase of the
project. To achieve 90% of completion of the project is relatively
easy, but if some elements during the construction have been left out or
deliberately unattended, it is impossible to complete the project.
Commissioning of various systems is revealing all the problems which are
usually the consequence of engineering mistakes, procurement of
material and equipment or poor construction.
Proper solutions to these problems are usually very expensive and are
demanding extra time. That, in most cases, means exceeding the
deadlines. In case that various Third party inspection bodies are
involved in supervision, the handover can become much more complicated.
For example, for the construction and installation of one gas production
platform that is installed on sea, all the project documentation,
equipment, transport, installation and all the construction activities
and testing must be certified.
During the construction of the last three gas production platforms that
are installed in Croatian part of The Adriatic Sea, we have coordinated
almost every activity regarding certification with the companies like RINA (Industry & PED), HRB (CRS), Ex-Agency and Global Maritime.
In parallel, we were performing supervision, inspection and testing as
well as necessary corrective activities to achieve handover in the given
