Effective shutdown services reduce the downtime of your planned maintenance


The length of maintenance downtime is a critical success factor for energy and industrial plants. All maintenance activities during the downtime - whether it is a complete annual maintenance or a recurring partial downtime - must be carried out as planned, on schedule and safely. Any new equipment installations and major repairs need to be accomplished in the same – preferably short – time slot. All of this may bring a lot of temporary workforce to the facility. How can you manage everything successfully?

Reduce downtime with careful planning and skilful execution

Good downtime planning and execution create significant competitive advantages for your business. With good preparation, downtime represents only a couple of percent of the planned production time. With poor preparation, time and costs can multiply.

Annual maintenance typically takes 10–30 percent of the entire maintenance budget of an industrial or power plant. Good preparation and a skilled workforce keep your costs down.

Our professional staff, extensive expertise and wide geographical coverage provide a good basis for a smoothly implemented downtime. We have completed hundreds of annual maintenance shutdowns and learned how to make them a success.

Proper preparation is also reflected in good occupational safety and risk management. When all of your maintenance tasks are carefully completed in time, you will avoid equipment breakdowns and failures during production.
