Industrial revamping, the second life of industrial plants in the age of Industry 4.0

“The age of Industry 4.0 has quickened the pace of technological modernisation in factories, leading to rapid obsolescence of machinery and technologies. This shift poses a significant challenge for all industrial sectors. Against this backdrop, industrial revamping emerges as a key strategy to optimise investment and extend the lifespan of existing facilities, presenting a cost-effective alternative to complete equipment renewal”.

The age of Industry 4.0 has fastened the pace of technological modernisation in factories, leading to rapid obsolescence of machinery and technologies. This shift poses a significant challenge for all industrial sectors. Against this backdrop, industrial revamping emerges as a key strategy to optimise investment and extend the lifespan of existing facilities, presenting a cost-effective alternative to complete equipment renewal.

In the Process Division of the Industrial Plants Area at CT, we specialise in the basic and essential design for the renovation and enhancement of pre-existing industrial facilities, known as revamping, and in assessing the feasibility of new units or process plants aligned with sustainability and energy efficiency principles.

At CT, we turn our clients’ ideas into viable projects. Based on specific needs, we conduct feasibility studies for new process units or the upgrade of existing ones, ensuring their adaptability to new products or raw materials. Through conceptual engineering activities, basic designs, and simulations using advanced tools like ASPENONE and HAZOP analysis, our team is dedicated to adapting production processes to the latest technologies in energy efficiency.

Our track record is defined by multiple success stories. Since 2012, CT has been recognised as a benchmark of quality in the Oil & Gas sector, where we have adjusted and expanded our capabilities to meet our customers’ most complex challenges.

However, our experience is not confined to the oil and gas sector. The energy revolution has led us to be leaders in feasibility analysis for emerging technologies such as green hydrogen and biofuels, positioning us as experts in the field and aiding our customers’ transition to these new energies.

At CT, we respond to our customers’ challenges with real solutions that improve their processes from a production, energy, and environmental standpoint. Our team possesses a wide range of skills, including:

  • process calculations of various kinds
  • development of comprehensive basic engineering documentation
  • use of advanced software such as Aspen Hysys for dynamic simulations to allow an accurate assessment of the proposed modifications.

Furthermore, we complement these services with HAZOP analysis and the generation of CAPEX and OPEX budgets, providing our customers with a complete technical and economic overview of their future investments.
