Project Management

The majority of the plants managed by IMS have been project-managed through from development into construction and then eventual commissioning by our team. Thus IMS can draw upon existing experience to provide project management for new plant developments or existing plant improvements.

A skilled team will look at your existing plant set-up and suggest improvements to processes or equipment to ensure your plant is run in the most efficient way possible whilst optimising cost savings and reducing carbon emissions.

As an example of our success, IMS took over management of an anaerobic digestion plant in the Midlands and carried out a full assessment of the plant and all existing processes. Our team highlighted several improvements that the plant could make to achieve cost savings and make its operations more carbon efficient. As a result, IMS made changes to the pipework, operational equipment such as valves and pumps, and overall site management. The plant now benefits from significant cost savings and runs much more efficiently then prior to IMS’s takeover.
