Our offering consists of multi-discipline engineering including Process, Civil, Piping and Layout, for Electrical, Instrumentation and Automation Disciplines.

How we fulfil your expectations

Cost-efficient quality

With CAPEX-driven solutions we are able to push down your total plant cost. Our multi-discipline engineering teams work according to harmonised operating models and integrated tools from the early design stages of the project allowing for reduction of material and installation costs.

Global resourcing – local presence

Our successful over 15-year long Citec Europe – Citec India cooperation allow for further cost reductions – without compromising on quality. The key team is always close to you and ensures that the project requirements are clear for the whole Citec team wherever they sit.


We know regional norms and standards

Citec has assisted Linde Engineering since 2014 on one of the largest ethylene plants in the world.

One of the decisive factors was Citec’s know-how regarding construction-related Russian standards and norms.

We can support you through all project phases

Concept development

We can help you define which project delivery methodology is best for your particular project and help you manage the full process concept development. Considering what parts can be modularised is part of this stage.

Feasibility studies

Is your planned project profitable? Is your technological solution feasible? We can help you find out by investigating opportunities, challenges, risks and costs. We can define the most feasible technological solution for you and prepare all relevant documentation you need when seeking financing for your plant.

FEED/Basic engineering

Citec offers FEED/Basic services for your plant to ensure constructability. P&ID, equipment & plant component requirements defined by all disciplines.

Extended basic engineering

During the extended basic engineering stage, foundation loads are defined and 30% plant model is approved by customer. This stage is executed by a Citec team geographically close to you. When completed, work may be downloaded to BCC (best cost country). The core team stays close to you throughout the project.

Detail engineering

We provide detail engineering services across all disciplines. When the basic engineering is done, we put the plans into practice by specifying all the equipment and structures in detail in order to install, construct and operate the plant.


With the help of our procurement experts, you can rest assure the procurement process is valid whether the procurement is public or not. Typical services are: • procurement planning • preparation of offer requests • analyses and evaluation of bids and offers • negotiations with suppliers • purhase orders • expediting and at-site inspection of project materials and equipment • warranty issues

Site management

We can take full project responsibility of site management for all disciplines from mobilisation to demobilisation, as a total enterprise or part thereof according to your requirements.

Construction management

We manage the project's construction services including management, coordination and supervision of work performed by contractors. Quality, cost and time control.


We provide commissioning management for all disciplines (civil, electrical, automation, mechanical, process). Standard services include commissioning planning, supervision of cold & hot commissioning, operational training etc.

Plant engineering services

Project management
