Smart idling of operating facilities

Disruptive circumstances, such as what we are experiencing today, can lead to facilities that need to be shut down temporarily. How this idle time is handled, and the preservation efforts during the closure can have a big impact on starting up again in the future.
In this webinar, we outline a systematic approach to determine what you need to do to temporarily shut down a facility with minimal cost and risk. We examine the critical factors in order to quickly put your facility back into operation. It is precisely these critical factors that require the appropriate measures when idling, thereby extending the scope beyond the purely technical aspects, such as the necessary manpower and competences, the knowledge about the facility, and the environmental aspects. Please join us to learn more about Stork’s approach during this free online webinar.
