Whether grassroots, revamp or upgrade project, Chemtex delivers cost-effective solutions to Clients to maximize their assets, improve competitive positioning, and increase long-term business success.

Our in-house engineering department is staffed with experienced experts and engineers whose primary focus is to ensure the business goals of our Clients and meet our Client’s strategic objectives in a safe, timely, and cost-effective manner. Additionally, we ensure the engineering deliverables meets the local codes and standards as well as established international standards ASME, IEC, NEC, etc to ensure the business goals.

Chemtex offers a comprehensive range of engineering and design services, including Conceptual, Process, basic, and detailed design packages. Our design practice engages all of a project’s multidisciplinary team members in the project development.

Our Strengths

Chemtex engineering expertise is global, with office locations in USA, India, and China. Over the past decade, we have delivered more than 60 engineering solutions to our global Clients in the Oil & Gas, Refining, Petrochemical, Chemicals, Chemical fibers, and renewable energy industries.

The project design process incorporates early involvement of our procurement, construction and commissioning expertise, to ensure projects are designed to be constructed and operated in the most efficient manner.

Besides in-house design and calculation, our engineers are also skillfully capable of on-site commissioning and construction management. Chemtex executes all projects with paramount consideration for Health, Safety, and environmental well-being of all current and future project participants and stakeholders.

Based on the nature of the Project, the location, scope and the complexity, Chemtex assigns a team of experts to form an integrated task force to deliver the contractual scope. Each project is evaluated for certain unique aspects that need to be considered in setting up the ‘early work’ strategy.

Engineering Strategy

Start the Design with Demonstrated Technology and Incorporate the Latest Lesson Learned
Assure that the Design is Safe, Suited for Local Needs and Meets the Applicable Environmental Codes
Design the plant to the Agreed project Standards and Constructability Strategy

Chemtex’s Training Package

Training of Client operations personnel is an important aspect of successful start-up. Chemtex’s training package hands on training is often provided at a Licensors operating plant. Chemtex has implemented several projects where they are ‘first of a kind’ with inexperienced Clients in the chemical industry. Chemtex offers a complete training package to these Client’s employees to assure that they can effectively participate in commissioning and startup of the plant and eventually operate, maintain and troubleshoot the plant.
