- Loop checks on the Profibus network, configuring of instrumentation and MOV’s.
- Design of new loops and red corrects of existing loops.
Denman Instrumentation has been active on the plant since September 2009 and has had up to 11 technicians and supervisors at peak manpower.

“I am delighted with both our team’s performance and how our client has been very cooperative during our phase of the project.
