IEM Shout Out – 2017-10 One Day Course on Shell and Tube Exchanger Thermal Design

October 5, 2017

My technical division will be hosting a one day course on the 31st October, 2017. It is worth 6.5 CPD points, and held at Wisma IEM. The course will be presented by Ir. Anwar Ahmad.

During this Shell and Tube Heat Exchanger Thermal Design course, there will be overview on the thermal design for designing shell and tube heat exchanger by considering design, operational, and maintenance perspective. The design of the heat exchanger is extremely important, as it is the key element of a heat-exchanged system. This is not only on the desired temperature to achieve during operation but also when considering the optimum design prior procuring an exchanger. Furthermore, properly designed heat exchanger can reduce the turn-down time for maintenance as no frequent cleaning is required while operating the plant or platform. Technologies involved in this thermal technology will be discussed during the workshop to highlight the importance and advantages when designing and operating shell and tube heat exchanger (STHE).

Ir. Anwar Ahmad is a registered Professional Engineer with Board of Engineer (BEM), Corporate Member with Institute of Engineers, Malaysia (IEM), Corporate Member with Institute of Chemical Engineers, UK (IChemE), Chartered Engineer from Engineering Council, UK with more than eleven (11) years experiences in process engineering in oil and gas industry, mainly in design with engineering firm and operation for technical support during turn around.

IEM Shout Out – 2017-08 Two Day Course on Agile Vendors (& Subcontractors) Management

June 23, 2017

Can I get a competant main con management team?

My technical division will be hosting a 2 day course on the 23rd and 24th August 2017. It is worth 12 CPD points, and held at Wisma IEM. The course will be presented by Ir. Danaraj Chandrasegaran. Subcon team leaders, can you please attend?

This two day course is designed to help you develop skills that will enhance your vendors and subcontractors delivery to your project and reaching out to them effectively. This course will intersperse with Agile approach, whereby engineers will act as facilitator and to ensure that the collaboration between the business (in our case project) and the vendors & subcontractors is effective.

As a great deal of class time will be spent in a variety of interactive formats, active participation is essential.

Ir. Danaraj Chandrasegaran P.Eng MIEM CEng MIMechE. He is a Chartered Engineer and has honours degree in Mechanical Engineering from University of Technology Malaysia. He also holds a MEng degree in Mechanical Engineering from University of Malaya. He also presently a committee member with The Institution of Engineers Malaysia and Institution of Mechanical Engineers (UK) Malaysia Chapter.

Since starting his career as a Mechanical Engineer, Ir. Danaraj has had a varied service; both in front line project execution as well as in technical, training, and management functions. His career has a diverse outlook on project execution ranging from building construction, marine, mining and energy industry; as a mechanical engineer. He has worked on several large scale projects worldwide such as Shell Malikai TLP and Barzan Offshore Project. In addition, had delivered many projects successfully collaborating with vendors and subcontractors alike.
