Course Description

Introduction

Planning and managing shutdowns, turnarounds and outages in the process plant environment is a complex and demanding function. They are high-risk events due to the high level of activity taking place in a compressed time frame and added to that the uncertainty associated with the work scope and all the other uncontrollable factors. It is, therefore, no surprise that more and more organisations are reviewing their shutdown and turnaround practices to improve.

Shutdown/turnaround costs comprise up to 30% or more of annual maintenance budgets, and a delay in a start-up can cause a loss of operating profit that exceeds the cost of the shutdown/turnaround. Planning and executing a turnaround event require many people to be diverted and external resources to be contracted. They can be costly in terms of lost production, so a carefully designed plan can reduce costs. Minimizing the duration of the outage can have a major impact on reducing the cost of lost production. Augmentation of resources available to handle the planning and scheduling and then the execution and assisting in the start-up of the facilities will minimize the out-of-service time.

In this GLOMACS training seminar on Managing Efficient Shutdowns Turnarounds and Outages, you will learn:

  • A holistic approach to shut down and turnaround planning
  • The process, phases and stages of shutdown planning and execution 
  • The elements and outcomes of each phase of the turnaround
  • How to identify and develop plans to reduce risks to quality, costs, and schedule
  • How to plan and execute the start-up, close-out and compile the lessons learned
