Petrochemical | Multidisciplinary Services
Harsco Infrastructure has proven experience in new construction, maintenance and turnarounds in the petrochemical industry. Our multidisciplinary approach enables us to implement and coordinate a whole spectrum of skills, expertise and personnel, and to ensure the timely completion of scheduled maintenance programs. We always work in close partnership with operating management to provide world-leading standards of safety.
At the start of each project, we work on identifying client specifications and carry out a risk-assessment, taking into account the nature of the product being generated at the site. The production of solids, liquids and gases all have unique health and safety requirements. Our extensive experience with volatile substances and working in hazardous environments makes us a partner of choice for many of the world’s biggest petrochemical companies.
Scaffolding erection, insulation, cleaning and repairs are all aspects of our work at petrochemical plants.
In a single production turnaround, any combination of these may have to be carried out before production can be restarted. Because downtime is expensive, we take a tight and well-disciplined approach, to ensure that no production stop ever takes longer than planned. Our global network of inventory and service centers of excellence enable us to provide rapid responses for both scheduled turnarounds and emergency shutdowns.
Working together with our clients, we develop long-term maintenance schedules indicating priorities and deadlines for months and years ahead. The planning-based maintenance approach prevents disruption and expensive ad hoc solutions, resulting in more controllable maintenance costs.
In 2010 SGB, Hünnebeck, Patent and ESCO joined forces to operate under the new name of Harsco Infrastructure.
