Commissioning Services

The aim of the GATE Commissioning team is to ensure the equipment is commissioned in a safe and controlled manner while confirming compliance with the design intent and demonstrating system and equipment performance.

Lessons learned from our past projects have shown that more commissioning oversight is required during both the engineering and the construction phases to ensure that quality and operability are maintained throughout the project life cycle. That is why we propose early involvement in the project to facilitate a systematic, efficient and flawless transfer from contractor to operations.

We recognize that every project has many interdependencies between each function. By getting involved early in the project, we can manage these links and fully understand, adjust and adapt to Project and Operations strategies and priorities throughout the life cycle of the project and into steady state operations. GATE is committed to providing high quality services to support the activities of our Clients.
