CLIENT TESTIMONIAL

I like to give recognition to the Megchem project manager. The manner in which he addressed the work and also made plans to temporarily remove dangers really supported the shutdown’s bottom line. He is an excellent leader.

Senior Production Manager

Sasol

TAME, a key fuel blending component, saw enhanced production at Unit 79, improving blending strategy flexibility, keeping 78VL-101 online which enabled a continuous supply of co-monomers. Well done to the team for executing a safe shutdown!

Helgard Theron

Senior Production Manager - Sasol (Secunda)

The first ever Clean Fuels 2 “Cold commissioning shutdown” was completed successfully which increased CF2 petrol blending capability from 35% to 80%. Well done to the team for remaining strong and steadfast on delivering this excellent outcome.

Helgard Theron

Senior Production Manager - Sasol (Secunda)

The mechanical engineering capabilities in MegChem cover a wide variety of detail engineering services.  The five engineering groups and three mechanical drawing office groups are managed as separate business units and are staffed with over 40 qualified engineers and 30 draftsmen operating from offices in Secunda, Sasolburg and Centurion.  Our services and engineering capabilities are applied mostly in the petrochemical environment; however, but includes solutions on any pressure bearing equipment and rotating machinery in other environments as well.

MegChem utilizes a multi-discipline, integrated, systems approach for design. This is achieved by an experienced team of Engineering Managers that skillfully execute the engineering design stages of our projects. Knowledge of inter-discipline interfaces and the complex integration requirements of existing infrastructure, ensure high integrity solutions for most engineering challenges on a project. We are frequently called on to solve the most demanding problems in industry within constraints that varies from tight schedules, extremely harsh operating environments, to working on live equipment.

Process Engineering is responsible for most of the front end engineering design work conducted within MegChem. The group, numbering 16 at date of publication, consists primarily of individuals qualified in the field of Chemical Engineering. Total design experience in the group equates to more than 70 years

Our Piping Engineering group represents a core competency in MegChem’s portfolio of engineering expertise. This group currently consists of some 70 Piping Designers, as well as 16 Piping Engineers, located in Secunda and Sasolburg.

The group’s expertise centers around design and layout of high pressure, high temperature piping, as is typically encountered in the oil and gas, power generation and related industries. Although most of our designs conform to the ASME codes as per client specification, we are capable and experienced in most international codes (e.g. DIN, BS, EN, AS etc.). All our piping designs also conforms to all local regulations and laws, and specifically complies with the newly promulgated Pressure Equipment Regulations (PER) of the OHS Act.

MegChem offers the following electrical services and expertise engineered to meet client expectations

  • Pre-feasibility and Feasibility Studies
  • Power System Analysis (Load flow Analysis, Fault Level Calculations, Protection Grading Studies, Harmonic Studies)
  • Motor Starting Studies
  • Equipment Technical Specifications and Design Reports
  • Conceptual, Basic and Detail Design Engineering Packages
