Instrumentation & Controls
your project on budget.
Avoid costly rework and stay on schedule with our flexible instrumentation & controls engineering services
Common engineering services include:
- P&ID input preparation
- instrument index development and review
- instrument datasheets preparation
- inline instrument sizing
Control System Development
Control systems for greenfield facilities can require a multitude of vendor packages. In these cases, we integrate the packages into a single, plant-wide control system.
System integration experience
- Safety Instrumented Systems (SIS)
- Emergency Shutdown Systems (ESD)
- Burner Management Systems (BMS)
- Fire and Gas Systems that comply with international standards (IEC 61508 and IEC 61511)
- High Integrity Pressure Protection Systems (HIPPS)
Measurement and control systems can be designed to our established philosophies or customized to meet your specific needs.
Understanding the importance of facility uptime, we take great care when integrating new system components into existing architecture. In these cases, our goal is to deliver a seamless, integrated control system.
Our team will identify the most cost-effective option when replacing or modifying existing controls. For example, Vista successfully upgraded a plant’s legacy, pneumatic control system to a programmable logic controller (PLC) based architecture.
Optimized Network Architecture Case Study
Vista revised a preliminary design for a plant-wide control network. This included implementing an innovative, remote IO system complete with centralized controllers.
The revised control system hardware was developed with a star network. It also met the critical redundancy requirements of two independent routing pathways.
The result saved many kilometers of fibre optic cable by efficiently routing the home runs using pre-planned fibre panels.
I&C Engineering Services
Vista is a consulting engineering firm that provides cost-effective instrumentation & controls designs to owners and operators in traditional and emerging energy markets.
Quality is Everything
It’s not just about delivering high-quality instrumentation and controls engineering designs – that’s a given.
At the end of the day, engineering services are really about transparency, collaboration, and relationships. You want a partner you can trust to keep your project on budget and schedule. We want clients to return because you see the quality of our relationship as much as the quality of the design.
Vista’s engineering experience spans multiple decades and industries. Our highlighted projects document how we helped facility operators reduce project total installation cost (TIC) and total cost of ownership (TCO). They also explain how we’ve implemented complex new technology for emerging energy start-ups.
Multi-Discipline Engineering Services
As an integrated engineering firm, our I&C services are part of a multi-disciplinary offering. Team members from each engineering discipline work together to find project design solutions fit for your unique challenges.
The engineering group also collaborates with our drafting and design services and project support teams.
Engineering Technology with a Purpose
It’s easy to get distracted by fancy new engineering technology. But it’s important to keep the focus on how each tool will benefit the project.
We’re a technology-agnostic engineering company and system integrator. That means we can deliver high-quality instrumentation and controls engineering services with your preferred software or tools.
Our approach is simple, the technology must serve a purpose. Whether it’s laser scans and point cloud data or computer-aided design (CAD) applications and engineering programs.
Have a specific need for an application? Our in-house development team is available to customize a problem-solving tool. For example, this video demonstrates how we collaborate on P&IDs in real-time.
System Integration Partner
As an AVEVA Partner, Vista Projects specializes in the implementation, configuration, administration, and support of AVEVA’s Asset Information Management suite.
We support both owners/operators and EPCs with capital project implementations. The union of our integrated engineering and technical expertise is a true advantage. Our team has the knowledge and experience to help you maximize the return on your software investments.
