Maintenance

Making Your Maintenance Project Effective

Over the last decades, the approach to maintenance has changed. Systems need to produce, and outages must be as short as possible. Preventive maintenance philosophies are introduced for better production forecasting. Conbit is requested to support predictive and corrective maintenance projects. The time pressure is different, but the approach is similar.

Our clients require effective handling methods to support maintenance activities. Components are separated from the production system using Conbit’s lifting, rigging, and skidding solutions. Often these are fully integrated into the production system, which means they are out of reach for regular cranes. They can completely stop production when out of service.

Conbit is dedicated to performing a fast intervention while minimizing the risks of schedule delays.

Lifting operations during planned shutdowns

Most lifting during shutdowns supports predictive maintenance works like: 

  • a flare tip needs replacement 
  • a pipeline needs extraction 
  • a component needs replacement from within a machine, or 
  • a critical part needs extraction 

Many components require special lifting and handling systems designed, supplied, and operated by Conbit.

Within a shutdown, time is of the essence. The project planning must be a realistic reflection of the works. It is important to have a short project lead time. However, it is even more important to stay within the lead time, as unexpected delays can significantly impact. Our clients value our honest and realistic planning and preparation for any lifting operation.

Lifting for corrective maintenance

When a component fails without being prepared for maintenance, the lifting and handling contractor should be mobilized on short notice. Although Conbit is accustomed to preparing projects in much detail, we can also act fast. Our clients appreciate that we have a senior crew and senior engineers who can intervene on very short notice. 

Routine maintenance can cause dangerous situations.

Conbit has become a preferred rigging contractor for many heavy industry clients after an incident has occurred. Relatively small rigging jobs are one of the biggest causes of Lot Time Incidents in heavy industries. Once a company realizes this and finds its way to Conbit, it often improves its safety records significantly. 

Rigging is a specialist job. A 1,000 kg component might seem light, but it can significantly impact people and the plant when dropped. By getting Conbit involved, you will be sure a specialist is looking over your shoulder. When Conbit is performing the rigging job, you will feel comfortable with the displayed expertise of the complete crew and back office.
