Turnaround processes are complex and multidisciplinary. Stork's turnaround professionals have international experience in plant turnarounds. For us, no project is too big or too small when it comes to the goal of consistent productivity, safety and reliability.
We plan, perform, or support more than 100 turnarounds, shutdowns, and outages annually for power generation, oil refining, chemical processing, metals, pulp and paper, and other industrial clients. Our in-depth expertise in turnaround management minimizes shutdown time and costs without compromising on safety and quality, while often improving asset performance by concurrently executing modification scopes.
The cost and success of a turnaround depends strongly on the right scope definition. Therefore we start by focussing on the reduction of scope within the shutdown window, making the process simpler, more transparent and more efficient. We listen to your needs and develop a plan to ensure efficiency in the turnaround, extend maintenance intervals and optimize your total cost of operation.
Our support extends from the scoping phase of the individual shutdown, through work preparation and execution delivery, right through to close-out. A thorough close-out enables us to capture vital plant information and shutdown metrics. These enable us to continuously improve on safety, costs and planning in your next shutdown, regardless of location.
Shutdown scope management is an important area when it comes to minimizing the total life span costs of industrial installations. This book provides an overview of shutdown process steps, influencing factors, such as company policy, technological innovation, societal trends and market developments - and the strategies with which shutdowns can potentially achieve cost optimization in the longer term.
