Design and Engineering

Paramount Limited in the process of designing and executing a number of projects for hydrocarbons, chemicals, fertilizers, water and wastewater treatment and air pollution control systems in a wide spectrum of industries over the last five decades have amassed a wealth of knowledge. With the use of the wide knowledge gained through actual experiences, integration of technologies and use of design software skills, Paramount Limited develops and executes design and engineering for a multitude of industries in setting up of process plants/ OEM integrated engineering, wherein cross functional engineering functionality (such as process, civil, mechanical, piping, electrical, instrumentation and project management) is a core competency requirement.

Our vast past experience of EPC projects on turnkey basis allows us to drive the design process so that the project meets its schedule and also maintaining the delicate balance to use all techniques for controlling design and construction budgets.

Paramount Limited also stands up to the challenges in an environment wherein there is a limited availability of broad spectrum engineering consultants who can work right from the process development to delivery and installation capabilities.

Paramount’s strength lie in providing tailored solutions and service to deliver specific design requirements that will optimize the cost of engineering and accommodate constraints apart from achieving the project goal. The goals are met through,

• Careful study and alignment of engineering concepts into constructable designs, efficiently and cost-effectively.

• Engineering is a systematic progression – from process design and selection of mechanical equipment to sizing of control equipment, the definition of electrical supply requirements and eventually, civil and structural design.

• It is essential that each stage is sufficiently detailed for a seamless flow of information on to the next engineering level and discipline.

• As a multi-disciplinary organization, we have a strong interface management with inter and intra disciplinary activities that can accommodate constraints and are apt with respect to constructability
