MAVERICK announces safer, smarter startup and commissioning solution
COLUMBIA, Ill., March 10, 2015 — Startup and commissioning during normal operations can leave plants vulnerable to financial burdens and safety liabilities due to delays and accidents. To help plants navigate these risky steps, MAVERICK Technologies has unveiled the SureStart solution, an established process that mitigates financial and safety liabilities, while minimizing any negative impact to plant operations.
The SureStart solution for startup and commissioning combines MAVERICK’s seasoned commissioning process and its vast experience with planning, implementation and documentation. MAVERICK’s experience in startup and commissioning comprises more than 200,000 hours of on-site technical visits, ensuring a systematic and collaborative approach so plants can have faster and safer startups.
“Plants experience many non-routine activities during startup and commissioning, which leaves them at risk for costly failures,” said Tim Green, operations manager for MAVERICK’s Field Services division. “SureStart ensures plants have the experts and experience in place to handle these critical activities, which allows them to focus on what’s important — their day-to-day operations.”
MAVERICK’s SureStart team includes qualified commissioning and construction managers who execute over 50 effective startups a year. The team works with each plant’s in-house experts to facilitate a safer environment, tailoring the SureStart process for the plant’s precise needs. The gained efficiencies eliminate unexpected delays and costly post-startup reliability issues. This systematic approach to startup and commissioning gets plants up and running, on time and on budget.
“Plant personnel around the world face the challenge of commissioning huge projects amidst their normal day-to-day operations, and on top of that challenge, they deal with skill gaps and a retiring workforce. That combination makes plant start-up one of the most difficult projects to take on,” said ISA President Rick Roop. “Getting the right resources into the hands of our professionals around the world is something that ISA is passionate about, and MAVERICK is doing important work in this area.”
