Engineering

knowledge, expertise, and experience

Altura has the operational knowledge, technical expertise, and plant experience to support you on a variety of engineering projects. We specialize in revamping projects at oil refineries that require integration within an existing infrastructure. We provide project management and a multi-disciplinary team comprised of Mechanical, Civil/Structural, and Instrument & Electrical engineers. We verify designs by performing stress analysis on piping systems, structures, and pressure vessels utilizing Caesar II, STAAD Pro, and Compress software. Our goal is to help you execute your objectives safely.
