"Plant dismantling for re-erection" -  EVENT CANCELLED

Speaker: Richard Vann FIDE, FIExpE, Eng. Tec. Managing Director - RVA Group


With minds focused on a circular economy – everyone looks to reuse or recycle. Applying this philosophy to large-scale process plant may not always achieve the operational, commercial and environmental outcomes desired.

Many factors should be considered when assessing the risks associated with a plant relocation and how risk can be managed and mitigated to an acceptable level.

Recognising every case should be assessed on its own merits and no one-size fits all, this presentation covers many of the more common issues and challenges to be faced.

Speaker Biography:

Richard’s goal has always been to support global organisations in achieving EHS excellence and extracting best value from asset retirement programmes.
