The ever changing requirements of UK regulation and increasingly challenging economic conditions are placing a growing demand on the UK based Chemical and Process industries to operate their assets longer and run them harder.
C3 Technical Solutions understands the pressure that this puts on both staff and the process itself, as all our consultants have held senior roles within the Process Sector on Upper Tier and Lower Tier COMAH sites. However, addressing these challenges is not always as steep a hurdle as it may first seem.
One of these challenges is the risks posed by ageing plant.
C3 has found that although there are several factors which relate to ageing, the actual ‘age’ of equipment is often not the most important aspect. In C3’s experience more importantly it is how the plant has been operated and crucially maintained.
Here again C3 stands out from the crowd, having the ability to look at the whole process, including classic R&M structures, to more modern ‘Lean’ manufacturing set-ups. Within the C3 team we have fully trained and certificated Six-Sigma Black Belts and reliability engineers with experience working for multinational organizations.
But we are not just theorists, C3 has worked on a wide variety of sites assisting them with the development of robust structured integrity programmes, each having at its core C3’s ‘criticality assessment system’, a system which allows the operator to ensure their limited resources are focused on the appropriate plant items.
So what make C3’s Asset Integrity tool different for the rest?
Firstly, it is unique amongst its rivals as it is both modular and fully scalable. Secondly and probably more crucially our tool is proportionate, therefore it is capable of being adapted to suit almost any size site, installation or facility.
Call us for a no obligation discussion and we’ll even come to your site at no cost to help you get a handle on the size of the problem.
