Successful shutdowns or turnarounds require careful planning to achieve the least amount of production downtime. We focus on meticulous planning and extensive collaboration across workforce disciplines to plan shorter but attainable project schedules. Acting as your shutdown or turnaround manager, we can also coordinate all the resources, materials, and equipment needed to execute the project. Starting with a comprehensive shutdown plan, our shutdown management teams can ensure that your shutdown is conducted on time and on budget, allowing you to return to full production with an asset that delivers according to plan.


Metso shutdown management teams can consist of as few as one consultant integrated into your project team to as many experts as needed for large and complex asset turnarounds. Our 10-point planning system creates a how-to set of documents that help you achieve a shorter shutdown or turnaround and more efficient execution. Our shutdown packages range from shutdown reviews which can be conducted remotely, to shutdown planning and support, to a total shutdown solution, which is customizable to suit your needs.
