BCP experience in plant and station commissioning spans all areas of the Electric and Gas industry and includes:
AP1000 New Plants
Nuclear Plant Restarts
Fossil Generation New Plant
Substation New Builds and Retrofits
BCP is a trusted source to provide leadership and oversight for new plant commissioning. BCP begins with the end in mind and focuses on establishing an integrated project schedule (IPS) by focusing on commissioning activities as a driver for construction activities. We believe in developing effective lines of communication and continuous improvement through proactively identifying lessons learned and communicating those across the company. While there is much to developing and implementing an effective commissioning process, several fundamental elements include:
Bounding the commissioning deliverables and support functions
Project scoping of delivery systems, commissioning deliverables, function interface requirements, and division of responsibilities
Optimize an Integrated Project Schedule (IPS) and maintaining focus on the shift from construction to commissioning
Standardize where ever possible
Establish an effective Configuration Management process and system
Establish a Trust but Verify Governance and Oversight Model
