At PPI, our mission is to provide specialized engineering and technical services to our customers, wherever they are in the world. We support them in designing and operating assets that are safe, reliable and compliant.
Our team of experienced engineers, technical specialists, and subject matter experts craft reliable and cost-effective solutions.
PPI works with owners and operators to determine safety-critical elements (SCE) and appropriate performance standards. We collaborate with customers to develop the verification scheme for the lifecycle of the installation.
The verification process examines the safety-critical equipment and the associated program of inspection and maintenance. It assures performance standards are achieved and maintained. Independent verification provides confidence to the operator and to regulators in the suitability of risk management measures. It also confirms that the plans for operation and maintenance meet appropriate standards.
