Fabric Maintenance: Assuring Integrity and Extending Asset Life

Maintaining the fabric and infrastructure of a production asset is central to extending its operating life.

Fluor, with Stork, a Fluor company, provides solutions to meet clients’ fabric maintenance and asset integrity needs, with a focus on safety, quality and cost-effective service delivery. Multi-disciplined rope access teams are trained in a range of services, including painting, blasting and inspection. These teams maximize project efficiency while reducing logistical pressures on transport and bed space.

Working with clients, our contract teams identify immediate, medium to long-term integrity requirements and develop tailored solutions to suit the specific situations. Examples are essential work in a shutdown and immediate requirements for corrosion-under-insulation projects.

Competence and training are fundamental elements of this approach, and so dedicated training centers in Aberdeen, UK, and Houston, U.S., work to continually improve our teams’ competence standards. Work packages and associated processes are developed to manage operations and clearly define responsibility and methodology to ensure the project is delivered safely, within budget and on time.

We provide fast, effective support and a single point of contact for all fabric maintenance services to reduce interfaces and administrative burden.

Fabric maintenance service offerings include:

  • Coatings and surface preparation
  • Insulation
  • Passive fire protection
  • Special access systems
  • Construction support
