Project Sequence for a Miniplant
Many customers ask us about the procedure of such a project and how long the single steps take.
Even if the projects itself are completely not comparable, the sequence of the procedures is very similar. The time needed for the steps is indeed very much dependent on the persons involved and the complexity of the unit.
