Engineering disciplines

The GID performance presented in this section is based on the combination of resources in interdisciplinary teams from single disciplines:


  • Project Management and Controlling

At GID, we mainly use Process Engineers and/or employees with a great deal of experience in plant planning in these positions. The main activities are:


  • Coordination of the planning disciplines
  • Leadership of the planning teams
  • Reporting to the customer
  • Reporting to GID management
  • Time scheduling
  • Change order management


  • Process Engineering

This process is at the heart of a plant planning project. The main activities are:


  • Simulations
  • Fundamental flow diagrams
  • Process engineering flow diagrams
  • P&I diagrams
  • Calculations such as
    • Piping hydraulics
    • Piping statics
    • Piping classes
    • Heat exchangers
    • Fire extinguishing systems
  • Process and plant descriptions
  • Plant safety
  • Authority engineering


  • Mechanical Engineering (apparatus and machines)

The execution of the operation unit with apparatus and machines fundamentally determines the efficiency of a process plant. The main activities are:

  • Specifications for:
    • Vessels, tanks and silos
    • Columns
    • Heat exchangers and air coolers
    • Pumps
    • Compressors
    • Turbines
    • Package units such as cold water aggregates, hot oil plants, cogeneration
    • Loading equipment
    • Ovens
    • Technical building equipment
  • Technical bid evaluation
  • Drawing verification

  • Installation and piping

The operative optimisation of the plant is found across all subsections in the layout of all equipment and construction. At GID, all subsection planning is presented in 3D models. The main activities are:


  • Building and load-bearing structure presentation
  • Piping alignment and planning
  • Positioning of equipment taking into consideration
    • accessibility
    • serviceability
    • maintenance and service
    • equipment goods constraints (weight, inlet path etc)
  • Energy supply plant
  • Energy distribution
  • Process control and measuring station

  • Construction and steel construction

The 3D modelling commences with the possibility of load transfer. The main activities are:

  • Building planning
  • Load-bearing structure planning
  • Static calculation for buildings and load-bearing structures
  • Steel construction overview drawings
  • Foundation and pile drawings
  • Layout of form and reinforcement drawings
  • Construction application forms
  • Specifications and measurements

  • Electrical Engineering

One of the most important supporting enegies is the electrical provision for the plant. Main activities are:

  • Low and middle voltage plant planning
  • Distribution plants
  • Transforming
  • Uninterruptible power supply
  • Plant illumination
  • Earthing and lightning protection planning
  • Specifications and measurements

  • Measurement and control technology, and process control

Safe operation is mainly achieved through instrumentation and process control. The main activities are:


  • PLS – process control system planning
  • SPS – safety process control technical planning
  • SIL inspection
  • Instrumentation specifications
