Case studies


SABIC’s main priority is the safety of its staff as well as the safety of the surrounding community and with plant equipment that stretches approx. 2000 acres this requires high levels of control when planning and executing maintenance. SABIC invests heavily in Technology and Innovation.

The Brief

With their next plant shutdown planned for March 2020, SABIC Teesside has signed up with IAMTech for 12 months in order to trial the effectiveness of using IAMTech’s iPlanSTO software for planning and execution of its offsites shutdown, consisting of 1000kms of above ground high hazard pipelines, storage vessels, & the hub of the UK’s ethylene control.

The Solution

The iPlan software system will be used by shutdown teams across both sites at the Teesside plant, (North Tees & Wilton). The software will support extensive pre-planning, ensuring comprehensive work packs are built and stored in one place, accessible to all parties involved, to eliminate any known works not being planned in detail and having to be included in the emerging work during the shutdown which could cause unnecessary risk or costly delays.

iPlan STO is a suite of software tools that enable industrial plant owners & operators, plan, and execute their Shutdown / Turnaround / Outage, more effectively than by traditional means, such as spreadsheets and gantt charts.

Data control is excellent - the important piece with data for a Shutdown is getting everything in place up front. Planning data analysis in iPlan was excellent
