Advanced Shutdown and Turnaround Management

Maintenance Shutdowns and Outages is one of the most challenging periods in the industry covering technical challenge, legislation, financial and logistical issues on a large scale, and this is before the consideration of people side with large teams to bring together and motivate. Shutdowns are the most costly and time-consuming of maintenance projects as these lead to loss of production and expenses involved. In reality, the risk on equipment reliability, production integrity and operation efficiency increase due to machinery failure and unscheduled outages. To avoid production delays and costly maintenance repairs, companies are striving to do the shutdown project as effective and efficiently as they can during the first time around.


Salvo Global’s 4-day intensive online Masterclass on “Advanced Shutdown & Turnaround Management” 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. In addition, delegates will be introduced to the proven Shutdown Master Checklist that Khalil Elhadaui developed over the years and how to effectively utilize it for their shutdown planning and scheduling. This will serve as a foolproof plan for a successful Shutdown project.

“We’ve been losing over 1 million dollar each shutdown due to a lack to manage the complexity of shutdown process and to eliminate the delays and safety issues. However, after a couple of training and practical shutdown based on a structured shutdown management framework, we could see the light of the tunnel by eliminating most non value-added tasks and reducing delays.”
