Removing a number of tubes in a furnace at a Dutch refinery.
At a Dutch refinery in Rotterdam.
During a ‘turnaround’ (part of the factory was shut down), the technicians carried out various activities using rope access. The project consisted of three parts:
The factory could only be shut down for a few days and therefore it was important that all the work was carried out within the time frame. To ensure that everything went safely and according to plan, the refinery replicated the work site exactly, a so-called ‘mock-up’. The weeks before the actual turnaround, the technicians were able to train. This was not only important for the turnaround time, but also essential for cooperation and safety. In this way, they were prepared for the work location, the work and the team.
