Successful Shutdown & Turnaround Management – why this training?

In the global economic situation, many - industrial - organizations are trying to pore down their operational and capital costs. Shutdown and turnaround costs are responsible for excessive maintenance expenses. The loss of revenue and income during a shutdown is often multiple times the cost of the shutdown itself. Poorly executed turnarounds have a huge cost implication for your company in terms of loss of market value share and revenue. One extra day of downtime might have an impact of thousands or even millions of euros on revenue alone. It is always challenging to control costs and duration of a shutdown. Mostly, Shutdown, Turnaround and Outage (STO) projects are supported by complex financial structures that are different from traditional budgeting systems and therefore it becomes difficult to track costs.

Proper management and control can lead to significant cost savings. In this training, top instructors will help you understand and manage turnaround processes and the means to control a shutdown, turnaround and outage.

What will you learn?

In this 5-day training you will learn how to better manage and control a shutdown, turnaround and outage and how to minimize risks, delays and loss of revenue. You will be able to identify gaps in your preparation and execution and to plan safe and productive turnarounds with optimized scheduling and cost control that will enable you to deliver both on time and within budget. During the training, you will have to solve case studies based on real project situations. In a nutshell, you will learn about:

  • The phases, processes and techniques of a turnaround
  • All aspects of turnaround and project control
  • How to plan for cost, time, safety and quality, and how to prevent common pitfalls
