Facility Shutdown Maintenance

Facility or “planned” shutdown maintenance is vital for any production facility.

Access to these plants and equipment is usually restricted during routine operations, so planned shutdowns provide the opportunity for the engineering team to complete major maintenance to the plant as well as equipment.

No matter how efficient a plant is run, a shutdown is required to be able to withstand the number of services it can provide, and similar to any other industry that requires heavy machinery and equipment to operate, there will always be operational and warranty requirements as to when it should be inspected or serviced. If you plan accordingly, having Khuduyane Quigley that can respond quickly to replacement and/or hiring needs can significantly mean success or failure to a turnaround schedule.

Khuduyane Quigley undertook a number of shut down projects in December 2017 with glowing reviews from all our clients. We vacuumed sludge at a mine in the south of Johannesburg and the client was extremely happy with the efficiency of the teams and the works were completed over a period of 6 days within time and budget. Our client comment that “With Khuduyane Quigley’s trained operators and the Kaiser eco-recycling combination unit made for a formidable team on site working efficiently and with precision.  The works were professionally completed in time. We will be making use of their services again at the end of 2018.”
A production facility in Nigel utilised our services to clean out their sumps during their shut down in December 2017.  Khuduyane Quigley’s team of professionally trained operators and cutting-edge equipment which is unrivalled in the industry, successfully completed the job with 3 Kaiser eco-recycling combination units and the Megavac eco unit. The client has put in a request for the same works to be conducted this year.
