Depending on the scope and complexity of the shutdown or turnaround project, we begin planning several months in advance.
Planning consists of work at your site and at Outotec’s offices. Our planning and asset maintenance experts meet and work with your project team and the construction contractors that you select to optimize and agree on the plan and schedule. At the completion of the planning phase, you and your contractors will have a comprehensive understanding of the agreed shutdown plan as well as all necessary documents to manage and execute the project.
