Activity Description
Described activites are to be referred to the development of Bir Berkine and Bir Berkine North (BBK & BBKN) production fields, located in Algeria, performed by ABB PS&S for Sonatrach.
Against to what was originally planned, in place of generic support for the development of the instrumentation engineering activities implied within the project, duties normally covered by the
Project I&C Leader position were carried out: this is occurred due to repeated changes of the project task force arranged by the Client and its operational needs. Due to such reasons, since the early stage of the project, all duties and activities normally implied by that position have been carried out, of course, at the Client's premises, as follow:
Spare Engineering: ingegneria strumentale, elettrica e disegno CAD
 - project task force coordinated activities, related to all instrumentation field aspects;
 - Project Engineer coordination, and less often, with  the Project  Manager;
 - meetings periodici interdisciplinari per definizione schedula attività e verifica avanzamento;
 - meetings with End Customer (was a team of Resident Engineers within Client's premises);
 - human resources managment for all instrumentation aspects, with Customer's  I&C Manager;
 - external human resources (for instrumentation), management and supervision (outsourcing);

Spare Engineering: ingegneria strumentale, elettrica e disegno CAD
In addition to mentioned project management, however, it have also been proceeded with the operational development of several project documents like the followings:
Spare Engineering: ingegneria strumentale, elettrica e disegno CAD
 - Specification Technique du Système de l'Instrumentation;
 - Specification Technique pour l'Instrumentation des Units Package;
 -
Specification Technique du Comptage Multi-Phase de Debit (MPFM);
 - Specification Technique Cuvées Enterrées pour RTU;
Spare Engineering: ingegneria strumentale, elettrica e disegno CAD
and the normal verification activities of produced project literature like, for example:

 - P&ID verification for the instrumentation competence aspects (tagging, simbology, etc.),;
 - outsourcing produced documents verification (Data Sheets, layouts, etc.);
 - SDV e BDV valves pneumatic command typical layout definition;
 - tecnical evaluations verification, as also check of several further project documents.

Moreover, for all plant packages being interested for instrumental aspects, (e.g. the relevant gas compression package), all the meetings with Vendors have been attended (taking care also for the technical evaluation of some of them, like, for example, the multiphase flow meter MPFM), ensuring, for some of them, that all instrumental aspects, since the preliminary stages of Vendor selection, up to subsequent phases of the kick-off meeting and follow-up, have been properly faced and met.  
In a second project phase, only after an almost complete performing of the field instrumentation tasks and duties, it has been required to also cover the tasks related to the coordination and follow-up to the supply of the plant control system (splitted into DCS, ESD, F&G and Scada, followed, in the early stage by another senior instrumental engineer), due to a new and changed arrangement of the Client's project task force, which occurred during the latest final stage of the project.

Activity Description
As usual, after the plant start-up and commissioning phases performing, the Handover stage will approach. Obviously, the End Customer may consider to raise objections about the findings of the plant, asking to Main Contractor to resolve any gap, or at least to compensate for any plant missed performance, or lower than the one contractually agreed.  Within such operating environment, the management and resolution of a Punch List, essential to achieve the minimal optimal conditions required for the subsequent plant hand-over.   Such large activity took place over several months, and have been carried out directly at the Client premises, in close collaboration with the on site engineers, as also with the I&C Manager, always with the prior approval of the Project Manager.
Due the nature of mentioned activities, the deep and accurate knowledge of the contractual documents and correspondence was required, in order to verify the appropriateness or otherwise of the request of the End Customer, in the absence of which, of course, the argued and appropriate reply was prepared, with the prior approval of P.M. For the justified End Customer claims, the direct involvement of the relevant sub-contracting (through meetings between the parties), controlling all the contractual elements have been performed, as due to such evaluation process, the sub-supplier was required to provide for recovery or integration of the missed provision (or part).  When the sub-supplier had properly fullfills its contractual obligations, the fast recovery on the market of the missed parts or equipments have been performed in order to achieve and meet the originally agreed features, while investigating  for the best supplier for prices and/or product performance.   For circumstances where was not possible to identify a precise source of responsibility, or where such adjustment was not significantly expensive when compared with the intrisic value of the contested part (or performance), still in consultation with the P.M. were negotiated compensations with the aim to achieve the indispensable End Customer satisfaction, a required condition for the final plant Handover.
After the progressive depletion of the instrumentation aspects implied by such Punch List, also the electrical aspects have been carried out as well.

Steel - Continuous Casting World largest bloom conticaster (650 x 650 mm)
Spare Engineering: instrumental, electrical and process control engineering & CAD drawing services
Activity Description
Described activites are to be referred to the development of the drilling rods production plant located in Ukraine, performed by Danieli Group for JSC Sumy Frunze NPO.  In detail, PLC site support engineer activities have been carried, during the start-up and commissioning phases to be related to a continuos casting system (conticaster), under the direct supervision of the site software engineering leader. The PLC control architecture oversaw a complex and innovative concept of continuous casting (conticaster), ensuring, among other things, the production of blooms of relevant sizing, to be submitted to the next forging hammers action, in order to get a complete drill rod from a single piece bloom.  The top of conticaster was characterized by the presence of magnetic stirres in molds (interchangeable, by various sizes, up to 650 x 650 mm), with ingots all equipped with magnetic stirrers, in order to stabilize the metal crystal lattice during the solidification.
Another quite innovative solution was the presence of in line oxyacetylene cutting system, capable to perform cutting by production specified lenghts, 
operating directly during the bloom vertical descent castings;  such cutted bloom was received on the hydraulic sliding foot on the the tipping group, and accompanied to the lower point, and then turned of 90° in order to move to the next step of horizontal machining.  Thanks to this innovative solution have been possible to avoid the usual "curvature" of the casted blooms (often considered as detrimental for the final metal cristalline structure quality, expecially for large size bloom).
By the above performed tasks description, it can be easily understood that the PLC configuration was completed by a relevant number of axis positioning card, encoder reading cards, 
motion controls, as the true coordination between all the involved conticaster equipment units (mold,  oxyacetylene cutting system hydraulic tipper motor), providing also for the necessary safe operations with tons of hot metal (part of which melted into the mold); to understand the nature of possible risks, it would be enough to imagine the possible consequences of a premature tipper action, in case the oxyacetylene cutting system has not yet finished its cutting action. A significant number of interlocks and safety solutions were in fact developed and implemented directly in the field, during the demanding stages of commissioning. Obviously, due the mentioned coordination with other plant production sections (e.g. for the setting of the next production process), under the Host supervision (e.g. management of informations related to production lots, etc,), the PLC was completed  by several communication card modules.

Industry Project
Oil & Gas - Midstream 2nd ITP (Iraq Turkey Pipeline) Expansion
Spare Engineering: instrumental, electrical and process control engineering & CAD drawing services
Activity Description
The project refers to what, since '70 years, was perhaps the most important oil pipeline in Iraq, most recently know as the Kirkuk-Ceyhan Pipeline, that repeated sabotage, since 2003, and the major explosion in october 2009, near Mosul, have virtually caused the definitive closing (the new Iraqi government is in fact considering the possibility of alternative routes through the governorates of Erbil and Dahuk, less susceptible to tampering (source Wikipedia).
Such project (2nd ITP Expansion, where ITP shall be assumed as Iraq-Turkey Pipeline), was planned for the implementation of a second 46" pipeline, in addition to the existing 40".  By a previous revamping action (1st IPT Expansion), the existing pumping station working on such 40" pipeline, were pratically doubled, consequently, by the 2nd ITP Expansion was planned to switch such latest pumping stations over the new 46" pipeline. These same "new" pumping stations were  also completed for pig launching and receiving traps stations, for the cleaning of  the new pipeline. By such new plant configuration, the original pipeline was definitelly splitted into two lines, both capable to be managed entirely by the remote control system (TDC2000 Yamatake Honeywell RTU), or locally, through the control room of each pumping station.  The coordination and control in automatic remote (RTU), local semi-automatic and manual for both pipelines, as also the new pig launching and receiving traps
handling, were deployed on PLC.
In an early stage and f
ollowing to a reasonable time period of project introduction held at the Client's headquarters of Marcallo, it have been reached the installation site as software leader, where, in accordance to the original plans, were to be aquitted for the set-up and the commissioning activities related to the software of different PLC (installed in each pipeline pumping station), and the verification of the proper communication with the tankfarm supervisor (remote RTU).  It should be noted that the pipeline represented a significant military objective (at that time Iraq was at war with Iran), which never should have been stopped, and never can go under shut down (such oil export pipeline was as sure among the most profitable source of the country).  Consequently, such start-up and commisioning actions were possible to be performed only for limited operating sequence portions, preferably under controlled conditions (actuators and remote coordination sectioned), by partial pumping station sections verification (e.g. launching and receiving pig traps alone), or during scheduled maintenance or accidental opportunities, during any plant failure.  In addition to such limited operability, further difficulties have been originated by the poor and inadequate availability of documents related the existing plant sections (almost never updated "as built"), and at last, initial surveys performed not enough deeply, led to numerous and substantial design changes to the software originally prepared at the Client's premises; such changes have been required by a relatively  intransigent End Customer (virtually militarized).  Moreover, many of hardwired signals required for the proper fusion with the existing control system had to be taken from existing old relay logic control room panels, that previous survey had not properly identified, mapped, tested, and/or for which, many of the drawings in the hand of End Customer, were not updated (signals not shown).   For these reasons, with all  of such difficulties operating environment (for example, almost all correspondance, minutes of meetings, etc. have been hand written), the new operating sequences have been agreed, together with the reference engineering company (Lummus Crest/Protech joint venture), and the End Customer, by repeated meetings performed on site, sometimes in presence of the Main Contractor's officials.
For consistency with the new control strategies adopted and implemented on the Iraqi side of the pipeline, interfacing stages have been performed also on the Turkish side of the pipeline, in order to implement, also inside such PLCs, the same operating sequences.
