It's been a long time coming, but Canada's leading event for turnaround and shutdowns is returning to Calgary this December! Being part of the turnaround and shutdown industry, we all know both are unavoidable and necessary.

Shutdowns, also known as outages, require that the facility stop part or all of its operations to upgrade and maintain its equipment. Poorly planned shutdowns can cause massive losses to the company. However, on the other hand, if your shutdowns are planned and executed effectively, you'll see significant positive impacts like an increase in productivity and earnings.

N. Wotton Presenting

Flint is excited to have this huge event return. We've had the opportunity to present at the shutdown and turnaround super conference in 2018 and 2019, and shared our experience on how a collaborative team environment between stakeholders, and early contractor engagement is key to a successful turnaround.

The superconference has been a fantastic opportunity for those in the industry to get the latest information on safety, scheduling, efficiency and cost management. Take workshops and learn from the best in the industry, learn about turnaround planning, preparations for shutdowns and successful turnarounds.

Despite the labour shortages experienced across our industry, Flint’s recruitment team has deployed 900 trades for seven concurrent turnarounds. So it's been a busy fall turnaround season for us and we are actively recruiting for our Spring Turnarounds.
