Plant Turnaround & Industrial Cleaning Services

A plant turnaround is a highly-expensive planned period of regeneration in a plant or refinery. During this time, an entire part of the operation is shut down while the plant is inspected and revamped. Not only are the tools and labour required for executing a turnaround extremely expensive, but the revenue lost through shutting down elements of production can amount to a significant portion of an annual budget.

With the world being so heavily reliant on oil and gas, planned stoppages are a necessary part of the refining process. These turnarounds can be due to a need for maintaining, renovating, or refitting facilities. Turnaround activities require well-organised labour and equipment. Most facilities will be inspected during shutdowns and turnarounds, and might have their turnaround extended if additional issues are flagged. Extending turnaround activities may result in fuel shortages, price increases, or both. Strain is increased on other suppliers to meet demands, and turnarounds which become shutdowns can be catastrophic for supply at a regional level.

Good planning is the key to a successful and timely turnaround. Facility downtime is a major barrier to obtaining production goals.
