DCS/PLC Migrations and Upgrades
System Integration Solutions

Upgrading a Distributed control system (DCS) is a complex task that requires careful planning, coordination, and testing to mitigate risks such as downtime and data loss. Site requirements, regulatory compliance, and minimizing disruptions must be considered to ensure a smooth cutover. However, the security and functionality benefits of newer technologies can outweigh the costs, making it a valuable process for industrial operations. 

aeSolutions can provide the methodology, technical services, resources, personnel, and field support to accomplish your goals and objectives working with you from project inception to final commissioning. Through a proven project delivery model, aeSolutions integrates diverse hardware, software, and services from multiple vendors and client stakeholders into a unified, integrated system. 

Our full range of services will lead you through the controls integration process to deliver a fully integrated, cohesive control system in a well-executed project.

"Design, Implement, & Commission"

Our clients are increasingly challenged to produce more with less. The productivity of yesterday’s most efficiently operated facilities is not acceptable for even mid-pack performance today. We understand the economic pressures the industry faces —and our industrial automation services can help. Our teams are skilled in all aspects of process control engineering because we all understand that the greatest influence over project success or failure comes from the earliest stages of conceptual design, long before the actual programming effort ever begins.  

The overall result is a facility is both back online faster so you see the financial advantages of the new DCS faster.
