Plant Turnaround / Shutdown Support

Shutdowns can be defined as scheduled down periods for a plant scheduled maintenance for an extended period of time. 

Shutdowns provide unique opportunities to a maintenance department to access plant and equipment not normally available during standard operations. 

Turnarounds, sometimes referred to as TAR, are very expensive planned events. During these events it is not uncommon for an entire part of a plant to be offline.

Good planning is the key to success.

Our team of Industrial Hygienists are available to provide worldwide support during an emergency plant shut down or planned plant turnaround.

Typical process includes:

  • Determine Hazards.
  • Identification: of similarly exposed groups (SEG’s) eg engineers, standby operators, fitters etc;
  • Planning: sampling of each SEG is allocated specific time periods, media requirements identified etc;
  • Budgeting: costs are generated based on the activities identified as expected to be required;
  • Work Execution: Site sampling is undertaken as identified and planned.
  • Evaluation: At the end of the project time will be allocated to review and identify areas to improve for the next shut down.

We are contactable 24/7 for customer support including after hours, weekends and holidays for any emergency support.

Clients include Petrochemical, Chemical, Food Processing and Pharmaceutical

You can teach an old dog new tricks!

Managing Director Mark Armstrong proved that you can teach an old dog new tricks having just been awarded his Proficiency Certificate in P601 Thorough Examination and Testing of Local Exhaust Ventilation (LEV) Systems.

Mark attended the course in Edinburgh provided by Bill Cassells from Oxyl8 Consultants and found the course to be both stimulating and a useful refresher to back almost 20 years practical experience testing LEV systems across the UK.

If you're looking to get an LEV system tested having a P601 is an easy way to demonstrate that a consultant has the competancy to carry out the work correctly ensuring you dont fall foul of the law or put employees at risk.
