Swagelok® Plant Turnaround & Shutdown Support

Engineering Support

A plant shutdown/turnaround is a critical event in the lifecycle of a plant, ensuring that the plant continues to operate efficiently and safely.

Plant shutdown/turnarounds are an enormous undertaking that rely on many months or years of planning to effectively execute successfully, and on schedule. The scheduling of human resources, equipment, parts etc requires commitment from suppliers and labour hire companies to ensure timelines are met. 

A critical area that is often missed is the early engagement with suppliers. Leveraging their technical expertise, engineering services, manufacturing capabilities as well as the products they supply, can be highly valuable and contribute to a successful shutdown/turnaround project.




The Typical Lifecycle of a Shutdown/Turnaround Project

Shutdown/turnaround projects typically follow a simple lifecycle, from the strategic planning concept phase right through to the reflection stage, which feeds into the next shutdown plan. Swagelok can help with all 5 stages of a typical shutdown project.

Strategy Strategic Planning

We can help mitigate turnaround risks through a comprehensive risk framework, helping understand your project goals and using our global experience to guide readily available and cost effective solutions.  

Planning Detailed Planning Our Engineering Team help you set the scope priorities, through site walkdowns and key assessments of plant, including system evaluations. Swagelok engineering can support with system design support, reviewing longer lead time items and developing a procurement plan to ensure the parts arrive right when you need them. 
Organising Organising Long lead time items are identified and ordered, preventing delays in the future, while our Training Team are up-skilling your staff in the safe installation of fluid system components. Our fabrication team are also pre-assembling panels and systems to help reduce time working onsite. 
Execution Execution We support you as the turnaround happens, with vendor managed inventory, technical support and advice and tool hire, leveraging our project experience to keep your shutdown running smoothly.  
Reflection Reflection Once the project is complete, we can help review to learn and improve for the next shutdown, utilising leakage evaluations to ensure your plant is installed efficiently and operating leak free into the future. 



Specification Support

Front End Engineering & Design is crucial to a successful project, as is a strong, clear specification. Swagelok can help build a strong specification to ensure those working on your project, are working toward one common goal, your goal!


Our Engineering & Project teams can provide assistance to project planning, design and specification advice. 

Design Support

Minimise the risk of choosing non-standard components or selecting long lead time items, too late in the project timeline, by getting Swagelok Engineers involved early in your shutdown planning phase. 


We can help identify those at-risk items, and leverage our global experience to select readily available products that will help you through the entire life of plant.
