Optimisation and commissioning
At Wave, we work with clients to establish proven asset and management systems and processes, providing solutions for new and existing plants, mobile equipment and infrastructure.
We incorporate asset management prerequisites into early design stages and utilise asset lifecycle tools to ensure maintenance costs are optimised during the life of the asset.
We use the latest digitalisation advancements such as Digital Twinning to improve design and aid constructability in the development of our projects.
We protect project value through select project function Front End Loading (FEL) of which commissioning is the keystone.
Wave’s commissioning philosophy is tailored to the project and the Client’s requirements and is the driving force in converting the design into a profitable asset.
Wave can plan, staff and execute the commissioning of a project, either as an integrated part of the project design or as an independent team to the engineer on the project.
Project management and delivery
Wave’s project management methodologies are founded on proven and internationally accepted standards and processes.
We focus on creating and maintaining successful partnerships to design the most suitable and cost-effective solutions. We can provide comprehensive Project Delivery Management for an entire project, or individual Project Delivery services in an advisory capacity.
Wave International are highly experienced in the management and delivery of scoping studies, pre-feasibility and feasibility Studies, definitive/bankable feasibility studies and specialist process engineering services.
