Advanced Turnarounds and Outage Management

When organizations try to evaluate Shutdown objectives (fi nish on time, within budget, safely, with a fault free start up), they tend to analyze their performance too closely – so they don’t really know why they succeeded! If organizations fail to achieve one, some or all of their objectives hardly expose the underlying causes – so they don’t really fi nd out why they failed. Attending the Advanced Turnaround Management Course will provide the opportunity to explore the underlying strategic mechanisms, levers and processes that shape a Turnaround, and will offer insights into why organizations sometimes succeed and sometimes fail. The course will also introduce new cutting edge concepts that can increase the chances of a smooth and effi cient STO.

Due to current economic downturn, more and more companies are focusing on keeping the cost down while expecting their assets to run up to its critical limits. This will have a signifi cant impact to the shutdown duration and increase downtime.

Salvo Global’s 3-day intensive Masterclass on “Advanced Maintenance Managing Shutdown and Outages” is a practical how-to guide in effectively managing the Shutdown and Outage operations. Delegates will master the foundation for implementing, measuring results and successfully applying today’s best practices for Shutdowns and Outages.
