Planning, Preparation, And Implementation Of Turbomachinery Turnarounds.
MetadataShow full item record
Anyone involved in overhauling equipment during a scheduled turnaround knows the importance of having the right people and the right tools available in the right places at the right time. Obviously, the orchestration of the necessary events, which must occur, demands foresight and analytical thinking. The optimum amount of planning and preparation will depend on the complexity and size of the turnaround. Experience indicates that each turnaround is unique. While turnarounds may involve similar work items, constraints such as timing requirements and associated work interactions differ from one turnaround to the next. Nevertheless, prior work plans can serve as a basis for subsequent turnarounds. Generally, scheduled turnarounds are divided into three phases: • Pre-Turnaround Phase • Turnaround Implementation Phase • Post-Turnaround Phase This tutorial addresses the items to be considered and tasks to be accomplished during each of the critical phases, with emphasis on the pre-turnaround and implementation phases. Suggestions and examples are provided to improve task management.
