Measurement & Control Technologies 

Etteplan delivers full service for measuring and controlling chemical, pharmaceutical, manufacturing processes in greenfield, brownfield and migration projects. We deliver services over the whole life cycle of an investment project life cycle from specification, feasibility studies, realization, FAT, SAT, commissioning and after care. 

We provide full engineering services for devices (actuator, sensor, drives) or automation systems (PCS, PLC, SIS). Our services cover all that is needed to design and develop the actuators for controlling the processes, such as design of control loops and Hook-Ups​, specification and development of templates, creation of P&ID, cause and effect matrices, function chart​, creation of style guides HMI​, and frame applications​.  

For Etteplan, after care means optimizing the process after the project, training the operator with bespoke  courses and modern tools, rapid troubleshooting, and on-call support as a special service. You get all necessary services to automate and optimize your production process with hardware and software engineering from one provider. With our deep understanding of process technology and a manufacturer-independent approach, you gain the most cost effective, and always the most reliable solution. 

Process Automation Technologies

Etteplan’s process automation services help maintain high performance and productivity of industrial processes. As a one-stop-shop, we provide comprehensive turnkey services that include electrical and automation system design, electrical engineering, software development, commissioning, safety engineering, and project management.  

Our extensive knowledge of engineering design is supported by in-depth competence in the latest automation systems, such as DCS (Distributed Control Systems) and QCS (Quality Control Systems).  

Our instrumentation and automation services include the design of manufacturing execution systems, process and field instrumentation, as well as process automation software design. We also provide supervision and commissioning services, as well as factory and system acceptance testing services.  

Factory Information Technologies

Etteplan’s process automation services are extended by our specialists in factory information technology caring about customer`s tasks in handling data and actions between the shop floor with its controllers, the planning level with systems like MES, EMS or OEE ending in interfaces to the ERP system of management level. Our computer scientists, business analysts and web designer support our customers with its challenges in digital transformation, Industry 4.0 and big data flow in order to reach the best product quality.

Based on a deep process knowledge and a strong teamwork with our customers and their specific know how of their process we offer our services in System selection & design specification, software, and system development up to system installation, configuration and administration. Because management and process execution systems are highly relevant for production targets we care about maintenance as well as Level 1 to 3 support for customers systems.

Engineering services for traffic control and tunnel automation systems  

Etteplan designs traffic control and tunnel automation systems, which include solutions for variable speed limit signs, indicator boards, traffic lights and road barriers, as well as control room solutions. We also design advanced control systems for tunnel lighting, ventilation and smoke venting.  

Our services in traffic control and tunnel automation range from feasibility studies and specifications, to detailed engineering and commissioning services. Etteplan’s comprehensive engineering design services comprise electrical, software and data communications solutions.  

One of Etteplan’s reference projects in the area of tunnel automation systems is the design of the 7 tunnels that are part of the E18 Muurla-Lohja motorway for the Finnish Road Administration.
