Turnaround & Project Services When Time is of the Essence

During a plant shutdown, there’s zero time to waste. Every minute may be costing tens of thousands of dollars. We help organizations accomplish their turnaround goals with effective planning, careful execution, and scrupulous data management.

Planning is Key

Plans detail every aspect of what maintenance or inspections are being performed, what data will be gathered, which teams are responsible for each stage, what setbacks might occur, and how to respond if they do.

Scope Creep Causes Havoc

Turnarounds and projects go over budget or off schedule when there’s a lack of pre-planning or when changes emerge during the work. We take the necessary time during discovery to stay on schedule and within budget.

Innovation Means Success

Our breadth of knowledge allows us to identify potential turnaround and project problems while they’re still in the distance, not when they occur in the middle of a shutdown. We use technology like drones, artificial intelligence, and data analytics software to maximize resources before, during, and after and keep costs down.


Pre-turnaround Planning

Turnaround planning is something that is often time overlooked or underestimated. InServe knows that this step is critical to ensure that the client has an efficient and cost-effective turnaround.  We provide highly efficient and knowledgeable personnel to assist in the planning stage. InServe can supply all inspection personnel required to plan and execute any size turnaround.

Post turnaround Support
