The political and economic climate in South Africa has led to a severe reduction in capital available for large CAPE projects. As a result, many large producers of basic raw and semifinished materials have resorted to refitting or upgrading their existing production facilities from a mechanical and electrical point of view, thus conserving capital and utilizing valuable capital to the best effect. The authors discuss a methodology for handling such refits and refer to practical experiences gained by the authors on recent refit contracts. According to this methodology, the refit of a plant control system can be divided into three essential stages: (a) tender stage, (b) design and manufacture stage, and (c) commissioning stage.
