How can optimal maintenance be carried out at the lowest possible cost? A concrete maintenance strategy based on a risk-based approach can be devised by clearly mapping out the possible risks of all parts that make up the rotating equipment. Sometimes a one-time upgrade or modification is much more sensible than routinely replacing certain parts.

Risk based onderhoud
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.
One of our services is performing a risk analysis. In this analysis, we try to map out potential risks using advanced inspection tools. Based on these risks, predictions can be made that can further extend maintenance intervals. Why a risk analysis?
- Risks are mapped out
- Maintenance based on risks rather than routine
- Maintenance intervals can be extended/ optimised
