TWPL will be attending IQPC’s forthcoming Shutdowns and Turnarounds conference being held on 24 – 25 October 2017 in Rotterdam.
TWPL’s Managing Director, John Woodhouse will be delivering a workshop about ‘Latest developments to extend intervals between shutdowns – or avoid them altogether.’ The workshop will share some remarkable new developments for scope challenge, cost/risk evaluation and justification of inspection and maintenance tasks, and innovative methods for reducing the need for (or extending the interval between) shutdowns.
Emerging from the international collaboration the SALVO Project, the workshop will introduce a systematic process for exploring alternative strategies and building a case for the best value combination of work content and timings, including:
- Capture, quantification and usage of plant knowledge and expertise
- Incorporation of risk, reliability, uncertainty, sustainability and even reputation/intangibles
- Translation of technical requirements into business impact and financial implications
- Total lifecycle costing and cost/risk/performance trade-offs and what if? studies
Participants are encouraged to bring along their personal observations, frustrations and examples of trying to convince financial directors about what needs to be done, and why. In particular, how the conflicting agendas of production, maintenance/inspection, engineering/projects, procurement/commercial and financial interests are resolved in determining what work is worth doing and when.
