Through Life Engineering

The Reutech Solutions Through-life Engineering process begins at EPCM (Engineering, Procurement, Construction & Management), moving through utilisation, maintenance and ending at decommissioning.

Reutech Solutions provides consultation services and support during these phases through the skilful use of unique analytical software tools to provide cost effective solutions for every engineering or maintenance phase.

  • DOCUMENTATION AND TRAINING DEVELOPMENT

    A complete range of training development skills is offered to develop training courses to SAQA standards. The training courses are developed according to the National Skills Development (NSD) Strategy to the required National Qualification Forum (NQF) levels and will result in accredited qualifications to be incorporated in the individual Skills Development Programmes.


    A complete range of documentation development skills is offered to develop quality technical publications that can be tailored in terms of each client’s specific requirements. The Reutech Solutions has a team of highly experienced documentation specialists who can assist in either developing new documents or in updating legacy information into newer formats.
