July 2016 marks the 30th anniversary of PENTA Engineering Corp., of which PEC consulting is a subsidiary. There is much excitement in our office as we prepare to celebrate the many successful years we have been in business. These past years have been memorialized by many in the excellent services that we have provided our clients, in the transfer of knowledge that we promote, and in the positive experience of our own employees.

Following the positive results of the conceptual study carried out on behalf of one of our Ready-Mix clients in the US, PEC Consulting was commissioned to do a full Feasibility Study of a cement import terminal which confirmed the techno-economic viability of the Project.

PEC Consulting has completed a study for one of its cement clients in North America which called for providing recommendations to modify a railcar unloading system which presented leakage problems and was experiencing lower conveying rates. Our Consultants visited the site to study the equipment, gather data and hold discussions with plant personnel in order to develop the study. The study provided required options to fix the problems and included conceptual layout drawings and CapEx cost estimates.

PEC Consulting was retained by a major cement producer in the United States to conduct a study of the options to repair or replace a cluster of slurry tanks. The study included CapEx estimates and the required engineering for both options.

PEC Consulting is monitoring the construction of a new frac sand processing plant in North America. The study includes a gap analysis of the commissioning plan and review of schedule and budget.

Representatives from both PEC Consulting Group and PENTA Engineering Corp. attended the 58th Annual IEEE-IAS/PCA Cement Industry Technical Conference held in Dallas, Texas this last May.
