IndianOil has a systematic approach to turnaround management (TAM) system and has developed excellent expertise in
execution of shutdowns. Based on IndianOil's experience of successfully carrying out TAMs of over 200 process units
in its different refineries for over five decades, IndianOil is equipped to provide world-class technical support for
management of TAM. As part of its services
to clients, IndianOil also provides its services for Refinery Turnaround Maintenance Management.
IndianOil is the only organization in India with an extensive experience of performing the TAM of the entire refinery at one
go that includes all the Process Units, Utilities, Off-sites, etc., simultaneously. Such a concept requires enormous
resources in terms of manpower, material & equipment, along with a scientific way of executing TAM, utilizing advanced
tools and tackles, user friendly software packages in multi-user environment,
effective communication facilities amongst the coordinators, stringent safety standards, etc
A meticulous plan, integrating all aspects of jobs, is drawn and is monitored on day-to-day basis with an hourly
schedule. Monitoring software like MS Project, Primavera for planning, scheduling, monitoring & control are
used extensively. These software are used for generating daily status and exception reports on a number of criteria
such as activities due for start but not started, activities due for finish but not finished, effect of delay in
completion of critical and non-critical activities on shutdown completion
schedule. In the event of delay/unanticipated work, catch-up plans are made to meet the overall schedule.
