Turnarounds (TARs) are scheduled events when one or multiple process units of an industrial plant are taken off line to carry out required maintenance and/or renewal work. The TAR optimization program is designed to review all significant and success-critical elements of TAR preparation and execution. This program can identify optimization potential and assist with the design and implantation of improvements. We understand TARs have unique project management characteristics and these challenges feature in our animated Turnaround Optimization diagram below. Our case studies on the right demonstrate how we work.
