Issues on Shutdowns, Turnarounds and Outages to be Addressed in Salvo’s Masterclass in South Africa

Salvo Logo

Salvo Global will hold its masterclass entitled Advanced Shutdowns, Turnarounds, and Outages Management on 13-15 June 2016 in Johannesburg, South Africa to provide the latest industry best practices and techniques for Shutdowns, Turnarounds, and Outages (STOs) to professionals related to the field.

Reducing costs is most especially important in today’s economic state where everyone is still slowly recovering from the global financial crisis. Because the economy can never fully bounce back from the initial recession, organisations prioritize keeping the cost down and increasing their assets in all business processes, including STOs. Understandably, STOs can render an organisation loss due to the momentary pause in production, yet it is still necessary to guarantee safety and to maintain the condition of equipment. Aside from its maintenance and engineering purpose, it can affect the organisation’s budget and potential for revenue.

Salvo’s Advanced Shutdowns, Turnarounds, and Outages Management Masterclass will demonstrate to delegates how they can optimize STO processes and use it as a competitive advantage in their organisation. Within the 3-day course, they will explore the underlying strategic mechanisms, levers, and processes that shape a Turnaround, discover new key concepts that can increase the chances of a smooth and efficient STO, and learn different insights into why organisations sometimes succeed and sometimes fail.
