  • Seminar Overview

    Planning and executing shutdowns and turnarounds in the plant environment is a complex and demanding function. This seminar is designed to establish a thorough understanding of the fundamentals of effective turnaround management. This seminar is based on the company’s experience in consulting and troubleshooting hundreds of turnarounds around the world.

    In the development of the training program, a combination of extensive hands-on experience in turnaround planning and execution, input from turnaround teams, and emerging industry trends were blended together to establish proven turnaround management approaches. Numerous examples and case studies based on recently completed turnarounds are illustrated to emphasize major strategic, planning and management considerations that are essential to successful turnarounds.

    This highly interactive program provides a forum for real-time problem solving and developing workable solutions for future turnarounds. The seminar emphasizes that the company staff from different departments, contractors and vendors must combine their knowledge, resources and energies, and work as a focused team to successfully achieve company’s business goals and turnaround objectives.
