An Applied Guide to Process and Plant Design : Available 20th April

"An Applied Guide to Process and Plant Design" went to press last Friday, and will be available from 20th April. I'm quite excited, it's my first book.

As far as proper engineering is concerned, we are presently considering whether a troubleshooting trip to Bermuda will be required, and awaiting details to bid a design verification job on a Mediterranean island.

We are having an initial look at arranging training courses in KL and elsewhere for Summer 2015.

Sorting Out Engineering

Kel Fidler has noticed many of the same problems with engineering and engineering education in the UK as I have, and has written an interesting document about it, which you can download from the link. It's worth a read.

I'm also quite enthused by what is going on at Olin in the US, which looks to be the US version of the CDIO initiative. I've ordered the book.

Design Review Enquiries

Having just completed a design review for a hospital effluent treatment plant, we now have enquiries for review of the design of a pharmaceutical effluent treatment system, a package domestic sewage treatment plant and a system in an agricultural setting.

We have also been invited to tender to supply water engineering services to CERN. There will be lots of tenders going out today.

My first book is in its final proofing stage, and my second (on plant layout) has been started.

Always a busy time of year...
