Successful turnaround delivered at the Slagentangen Refinery

May 29, 2018

Bilfinger recently successfully completed the annual maintenance shutdown at the Esso Slagentangen Refinery in Norway, without any serious incidents or injuries.

The 2018 turnaround started with pre-shutdown activities in February 2018 to ensure safe and efficient execution of the four-week turnaround period in April 2018. Bilfinger carried out the maintenance shutdown in close cooperation with the Client, and we delivered the entire scope of work without any delays or incidents of any kind.

The Bilfinger turnaround team counted 40-50 people during the shutdown period, delivering access solutions, scaffolding, insulation, inspection and maintenance support according to the highest HSE standards and quality requirements.

High quality of planning and risk evaluations has been the critical focus areas of the turnaround team and leadership in order to ensure both excellent HSE performance, high efficiencies and quality of work performed during the turnaround. The project is an important example of Bilfinger's extensive experience in handling turnarounds and high activity periods whilst maintaining the highest safety and efficiency level in our operations.

We make turnarounds work - for our clients, for third parties and for Bilfinger.
