Successful Turnaround Management

A turnaround, also known as TA or TAR, is an essential but capital-intensive intervention within plants or refineries. In this process, a specific section or even the entire plant is temporarily taken out of service for inspection and maintenance.

Of course, this crucial operation entails not only costs for all the employees and resources that are involved, but also major revenue losses due to lost production. During turnarounds, more anomalies than expected may arise. Therefore, staying on schedule is extremely challenging and requires highly experienced managers, also known as turnaround managers.

Failure to finish a turnaround on schedule can have far-reaching consequences. Therefore, it is crucial to take the right approach and have a reliable partner to bring these complex operations to a successful conclusion.
Perfact helps organizations get the maximum return from a turnaround in accordance with predefined goals. From initial planning to project closure, our experienced professionals can make a difference in all areas of expertise within the turnaround organization.
The success of a turnaround is largely determined by the completeness and quality of the preparation process. To ensure correct and complete execution, we use multiple audits, checks and verifications throughout the turnaround cycle. Our critical eye reduces the risk of rework and ensures an optimal balance between time, cost and results.
