Modern process plants are complex and interrelated. They require careful planning and evaluation to ensure project feasibility, technical feasibility, economic optimization and proper licensor selection. As a designer and builder of all types of process plants, McDermott recognizes the essential part this early planning plays. McDermott maintains a group of senior engineers dedicated to process planning and project development.
