Stork were contracted to project manage Train 1 and Train 2 Outages along with the annual shutdown of three major North Sea assets offering a fully integrated service.


Recognizing the clients’ needs Stork mobilized a team of fully trained personnel to each asset. These multi-disciplined personnel utilized Stork’s integrated service capabilities, delivering: isolations and deisolations, vessel cleaning, full recoating, Tube Bundle cleaning, rigging, insulation, scaffolding, welding and mechanical. Inspection was carried out on ten vessels, three of which received full recoats, removal, repairs and reinstatement of full internals. Furthermore, eight exchangers were fully cleaned, allowing Stork personnel to carry out Iris inspection.


Stork’s ability to offer an integrated service to the major operator allowed the workscopes and strategies to be agreed and facilitated efficiently. A single point of contact at Stork reduced the number of interfaces and a multi-discipline team reduced the manpower throughout the contract. Quality communication and meticulous planning ensured that the project was delivered with no time lost incidents or environmental spills within the tight schedule.
