Service

Regular maintenance is a must to prevent premature failure of thermal installations and to guarantee their availability. This is usually carried out during an annual or bi-annual maintenance outage. During such an outage, a very large number of activities take place which must be carefully coordinated. Everything needs to be exactly right. We manage these outages so that they can be realized safely, on time and within budget.

Project management

Hilux's strength lies in bringing together a wide array of required disciplines. Thanks to our many years of experience, gained during construction of new boilers and in during the servicing of existing boilers, we are able to offer the required support where and when it is needed.

Test & inspection services

Changes in the mechanical load on installations may occur as a result of changed processes. This not only has impact on piping, but also on suspensions, control points and connections of equipment. As a result, changes may occur in the positions of spring hangers, in the loads on piping, suspensions and / or supports, insulation etc. Minor changes can therefore have far-reaching consequences, which in turn can lead to failure if not handled properly.

Our experts can provide a complete inspection (mechanical and process focused) an also provide the necessary reports.

 

Outage management

Because the availability of thermal installations is often critical, the balance between availability and the costs for planned maintenance needs to be optimal.

During maintenance outages, as a rule many activities occur at the same time. These include boiler maintenance, inspections, maintenance of flue gas cleaning equipment and E-filters, revisions of rotating equipment, testing of E&I equipment, etc. Safety during the execution of the maintenance work is of course paramount.

In order to achieve the above-mentioned balance between availability and costs, it is essential to have the right expertise available.

We often see that people from the clients’ own organization are deployed to coordinate the work during planned and unplanned outages. This often puts disproportionate pressure on management and on the people whose job should be to operate the plant in the most efficient way. Moreover, very few people have all the knowhow and experience that are required during a maintenance outage.
