Case Study


AJSS were contacted by a customer to assist with a compressor facility expansion project. The customer was seeking to increase the facility’s capacity through the addition of two new compressor trains consisting of screw compressor and reciprocating compressor packages.


AJSS supplied a Project Engineer responsible for the Compressor packages and the Mechanical BoP work. The Project Engineer worked with the compressor vendor during the fabrication of the compressor packages and factory acceptance testing. The compressor packages were then shipped to Australia for installation and commissioning on site.


The AJSS Project Engineer worked with the Construction team to ensure that the compressor package, including the enclosure, was installed as per the design and OEM requirements.

The AJSS Project Engineer developed the scopes of work for conducting the integration of the new compressor packages into the existing facility ensuring there was minimal downtime.

Finally the AJSS Project Engineer assisted with the commissioning of the newly installed compressor units and the overall facility for the increased capacity operation.

The AJSS Project Engineer then integrated all the new compressor and mechanical assets into the existing operational strategies, plans, schedules, registers, procedures, and work instructions.


AJSS assisted its customer in achieving its goal of increasing its compressor facility expansion resulting in an increased capacity.
