Plant Shutdown

PPM has an excellent record for successfully executing plant shutdowns, dismantling of major plant items and recommissioning. By collaborating with our clients from the onset we ensure a successful conclusion to each shutdown.

Having undertaken major shutdowns across Australia, we have developed an extensive network of highly skilled trades and supervisory personnel who regularly work for us and who are accustomed to working in the shutdown environment. With safety as the number one priority, our experienced Shutdown Managers and their teams have established a reputation for bringing plants back to full operation, on time and within budget.
