Complex Supplies of Capital Equipments
While strengthening its position among important engineering companies on Czech market in its main and dominant fields, the company UNIS gradually moves towards suppliers of complete capital equipments in all professions and so the company becomes of fully range of EPC (Engineering Procurement Construction) and EPCC (Engineering Procurement Construction Commissioning) provider. It concerns elaboration of project documentation of process, mechanical, civil, I&C and electrical parts, supplies of equipment and erection, commissioning and start-up of the units including performance of guarantee tests. The services and activities are completed by an offer of pre-project planning (PPP) and engineering and technical advisory services.
The company UNIS aims at projects realisation on „turn key“ basis, i.e. on the basis of contracts of EPC or EPC-M. The EPC (Engineering, Procurement, Construction) or EPCM (Engineering, Procurement, Construction - Management) forms allow arrangement of complex realisation of the project from initial intention up to start-up while fulfilling the fixed schedule and fixed price according to a precisely defined subject. UNIS as the general contractor offers a complex package of services from one source, including assistance in arrangement of financing by the customer.
Based on such realisation of investment units, it is possible to characterise the following as the main benefits of a client:
- Arrangement of responsibility for Engineering, Procurement and Construction from a sole sources and consequent release of proper management for efficient fulfilment of own activities,
- Complex solution of project requirements,
- Transfer of schedule and finance risks (fixed price) to the contractor
- Significant reduction of time from the initial intention to start-up
- Use of abilities that the client does not have
- Co-ordination of all the processes and activities in the course of the project as critical for fulfilment of time and financial parameters of realisation
The UNIS company is ready to arrange the above stated complex supplies of capital equipment or their parts mainly in the following industrial branches:
- Crude Oil and Natural Gas Processing
- Petrochemical and Refining Industry
- Heating and Power Industry
