Shutdown, Turnaround, & Outage Safety Solutions

Safety is the Key to Successful Shutdowns, Turnarounds, and Outages

SITEX STO Solutions brings expertise and experience to every phase of shutdowns and turnarounds.

Shutdowns, Turnarounds, and Outages (STOs) are challenging for manufacturing facilities. Plant management, engineers, facility maintenance, and EHS have to work together to coordinate complex jobs under tight timelines and budget constraints. Large teams of vendors and contractors are an essential part of the process.

With so much going on, a lot can go wrong. With so much at stake, you can’t afford mistakes.

Oversights in the planning phase of an STO can lead to unforeseen delays, incidents, and accidents. Downtime is the biggest threat to a facility’s schedule and budget for an STO project.

You Can’t Afford an “Average” Shutdown or Turnaround

According to industry experts, most shutdowns and turnarounds fail to meet their goals. 

  • 80% exceed the budget by 10% or more

  • The average turnaround falls behind schedule by 20%

  • Nearly 50% of work-related accidents in manufacturing facilities occur during maintenance outages

Facilities that succeed during STOs gain a competitive advantage. STOs that set the standard rely on planning, communication, and safety to close projects ahead of schedule and under budget.

Do You Use a Phased Approach to STOs?

  • Scoping Phase (12-18 months before mobilization)
  • Planning Phase (6-18 months before mobilization)
  • Execution Phase (Typically 2 to 6 weeks)
  • Start-Up Phase (Return to normal operations)
  • Review (Analysis & Recommendations)

SITEX STO Solutions Deliver Value in Every Phase of Shutdowns and Turnarounds

Giving safety a central role in STOs is the easiest way to avoid delays and incidents that lead to downtime. Downtime costs time and money that turn carefully planned projects into average performances. There’s too much at stake to leave anything to chance.
