What is Commissioning and why is it important?

In the cable industry, when a business invests in new technology equipment, the commissioning process is an essential step towards successful operation of a plant. To best serve our customers and respond to their individual requirements, Gürfil offers a wide variety of pre- and after- sales services.
Each project of our customers is different and must have a unique plan to achieve the desired outcome. However, the overall process to plan and commission is similar in each case.   It consists of mechanical & electrical installations, software commissioning, optimization and personnel training.
Commissioning works help to identify deficiencies during installation, possible shortcomings in the operation of the equipment before the start of industrial use, and also to ensure its uninterrupted work throughout the entire period of exploitation.
The reliability of the entire production depends on the quality of commissioning work - this is the rule.
The commissioning and training carried out by highly professional engineers is an important part of the wide range of services provided by Gurfil. Let’s look at the most important steps for commissioning and startup.
