Achieving a successful Plant Turnaround is an integral part of any Operational Excellence Program and requires the right partnership to be implemented successfully.
DuPont Sustainable Solutions (DSS) spoke to Anthony Becerra, a Principal at DSS based in the Middle East, on what to consider when implementing a successful plant Turnaround strategy. A Turnaround, also known as TAR, is a core part of an Operations Excellence Program, typically falling under the pillar of Risk Management, Asset Integrity and Reliability. A Turnaround occurs when part of, or all of, a plant‘s operations have to shut down for equipment to be inspected and, if necessary, cleaned, serviced, repaired, and/or replaced.
Among the pitfalls for why a Turnaround might fail includes not having an effective strategy, inefficient planning, and poor delivery. In this article, Anthony unpacks the potential reasons for why a Turnaround could fail and how to avoid them.
“The golden rule for implementing a successful Turnaround is to conduct a robust assessment of the Turnaround strategy and planning process prior to the actual execution of the Turnaround itself.”
