Facility Turnaround Project Specialists

Executing facility turnarounds across Canada is among Lorneville’s core capabilities. Building on decades of experience executing turnarounds in the refining, pulp and paper, petrochemical, and power generation industries, our experts develop customized plans to meet your organization’s needs and budget. Once finalized, we successfully execute these plans, ensuring your operations are back up and running smoothly, safely, and on schedule.

Lorneville’s turnaround teams are responsible for managing all aspects of your project—from planning and cost estimating, to execution and reporting. Our well-trained and experienced staff develops customized resource-loaded schedules and labour management plans for each project we undertake. These plans accommodate for increases in scope mid-turnaround while avoiding cost overruns through effective delegation and labour utilization.    

Our thorough approach to turnaround projects includes creating a Project Team Core. This team is unique to each project we undertake and consists of a project manager, senior trade supervisors, and project engineers. All on-site turnaround work is led by the same Core Team, ensuring consistency throughout the project. The Core Team is always on-site, building trust and rapport with our clients and ensuring accountability each step of the way.

During the course of our time performing facility turnaround projects, we have worked with organizations across North America, including Irving and Imperial Oil.

Featured Project

Irving Oil Reactor Head Replacement

In 2015, the Irving Oil Refinery in Saint John, New Brunswick, underwent one of the largest turnaround projects in the company's history. This turnaround employed over 2,700 people at its peak. At Plant 425, Lorneville's team was responsible for a variety of work, including replacing the reactor head—a task that required a group of riggers with a wide range of expertise. "The lifts went flawlessly and everyone involved can hold their heads high with pride for another job well done by the Boilermakers," said Lorneville's Rigging Foreman, Joel McLaughlin.
