Plant maintenance and shutdown planning
The key to successful plant maintenance shutdowns is planning. As the mill reline work is often the critical path task on a shutdown, Pacific Relines develops a detailed plan for each project to maximise the effectiveness of available resources to minimise total project time.
This plan is presented to the principal for examination and comment in the lead-up to the project and a detailed report is presented to the principal upon the completion of each project. Progress outcomes, safety issues and recommendations for future projects are covered in the completion report.
