Turnaround Management & Services
A Turnaround is a scheduled event wherein an entire process unit of an industrial plant (refinery, petrochemical plant, power plant, pulp mill, etc.) is taken offstream for an extended period of time for revamp and/or renewal. Turnaround is a blanket term that encompasses more specific terms such as I&Ts (inspection & testing), debottlenecking projects, revamps and catalyst regeneration projects.
Turnarounds are expensive both in terms of lost production while the process unity is offline and in terms of direct cost for the labor, tools, heavy equipment and materials used to execute the project. Turnarounds can affect the company’s bottom line if mismanaged and posses unique project management characteristics.
