About The Conference

MSEMS- Cologne: 19th - 20th Oct, 2023

Shutdown, Turnaround and Outage (STO) Management involve complex activities that introduce a higher level of risk to the business, requiring increased management focus and effort to ensure that risks are managed and that the event is completed within the allocated time and cost constraints. 

At this conference, attendees will learn about utilising Asset Management systems to create a competitive turnaround scope. A good asset management plan is critical to ensuring that the right work is done inside or outside of a turnaround event, and it is essential for creating a competitive total maintenance program.

The Maintenance Shutdown Execution and Management Summit (MSEMS) is a dynamic event that features thought leaders discussing essential processes and techniques required to effectively control and manage STO events for asset-intensive businesses. If turnarounds are not properly planned, managed, and controlled, companies run the risks of serious budget overruns, costly schedule delays, and negative impacts on customers.

Join us at MSEMS-Cologne-2023 to engage with peers and industry experts in Shutdown and Turnarounds, Planning, Maintenance, Inspection Strategy, and Management. Attendees will gain valuable insights into effective STO management and learn about the latest techniques and technologies that can help them optimise their maintenance programs and improve business performance.
