“The bottom-line is that the project ($10M US total) was completed on time and on budget. This would have not been possible without the excellent performance of Petrotech and the integration of their personnel with mine. …Petrotech rose to the occasion with flying colors.”
“A Project-Leading Engineer was installed from the beginning on to assure that all steps where technically supervised and finished within the time schedule. During one week the complete system was tested and analyzed by the customer’s engineers. Due to the outstanding PETROTECH testing facility all customer’s questions could finally be satisfied and the Panels where fully accepted and ready for delivery. Thanks to the good and flexible collaboration with PETROTECH the project was successfully brought to customer’s satisfaction.”
“We would like to express our appreciation for Petrotech commitment and successful completion of Project 8211 (Upgrading of Power Generation Control System (UTI A&B). The whole project was carried out professionally without any incident (48,000 Man-hours) delivering fully the intended objectives of the subject project. The success of this project would not have been possible without the team spirit and cooperation among all concerned which prevailed throughout the different project phases and we look forward to the prospect of further cooperation in the future.”
“I have found Petrotech to be very knowledgeable about any system that we have asked them to build and install for us. They have a complete program that includes engineering, design and manufacturing, customer involvement in factory acceptance tests, on-site installation and startup support, documentation support and after-installation technical support 24 hours a day. Petrotech has provided us with what we needed, when we needed it and gave it to us the way we wanted it.”
“On both jobs, large and small, the commissioning was performed in a professional manner, and I would certainly consider Petrotech for any future commissioning work.”
