The current approach is primarily based on time-based maintenance. This means that a machine is inspected during every stop, while this is not always necessary. Tanis Engineering helps you to identify potential risks early on to ensure that maintenance intervals are optimised. We anticipate future events and develop a maintenance strategy based on predictive maintenance. We use intelligent tools to detect possible malfunctions and degradation mechanisms. Degradation mechanisms can usually be resolved with a one-time upgrade or modification. This enables you to extend maintenance intervals and reduce the TCO, total cost of ownership.
Tanis Engineering has extensive experience with turnarounds and such maintenance stops. The current shutdowns are often planned out in great detail, years in advance. Therefore, transitioning to a risk-based maintenance strategy involves quite a few changes. But it is a profitable strategy that works remarkably in various sectors.
