Shutdown, Lochard Energy
Fitzroy recently successfully completed our first major shutdown project in Australia, at Lochard Energy’s Iona Gas Plant in south-west Victoria. Our engagement included shut planning and management using our proprietary DIPS planning and TimeClock time recording systems, and this was expanded to include the manning and execution.
The project was based on an agreed scope comprising inspection and maintenance works, as well as a number of plant improvement projects, and maintenance tasks which had been accumulated from previous shutdowns. A large number of emergent work requests were raised during the execution phase, and were included in the work scope.
The shut was completed in nine days as planned and budgeted, with zero recordable injuries.
