Project Engineering

 Engineering design and development specialists

Project Engineering is part of the wider Sebenzana APP group, specialising in power and energy advisory and equipment

From concept to commissioning, Project Engineering solves power problems for industrial and manufacturing clients across southern Africa.

Project Studies

Project Engineering assists clients to identify projects associated with embedded power generation opportunities or thermal energy efficiency improvements. Extensive process and financial scenario modelling is used to identify and detail multiple scenarios to deliver a client’s vision. These are subsequently evaluated through decision matrices to provide objective scenario evaluation and ranking. 

Engineering and Design

All of our engineers have strong maintenance and reverse engineering expertise. This experience, when coupled with in-house 3D modelling, drafting and FEA capabilities, enables us to facilitate comprehensive new plant designs, reverse-engineered solutions, failure investigations and remnant life assessments for our clients. 

Project Management

Project Engineering provides cost-effective engineering, procurement, construction and project-managed solutions into greenfields and brownfields sites. Our team’s extensive hands-on experience positions us to assist clients to execute projects. Project Engineering specialises in engineering design and development.

Project Studies

Project Engineering specialises in engineering design and development. Our three study stages take clients through concept, pre-feasibility and feasibility studies to determine project viability, key milestones and critical success outcomes.

1. Desktop Studies

The concept phase of all projects is crucial in developing project scope requirements and honing possible solutions. Project Engineering completes high-level studies to assist clients with decision-making prior to pre-feasibility studies.

2. Pre-Feasibility Studies

Pre-feasibility studies follow-on from the concept phase and are preliminary exercises undertaken to set out and analyse various business and/or technical scenarios. We assist decision-makers with an evaluation of scenarios and prioritisation of key outcomes.

3. Feasibility Studies

Once an ideal scenario is agreed, we move into the feasibility phase where we deep-dive into engineering analysis and costing to establish scenario viability. We provide clients with comprehensive financial models to indicate costing and sensitivity with a portfolio of technical documentation.
