During the 2023 summer, the Shell Chemical Facility in Deer Park, Texas embarked on a critical furnace recovery project. Responsible for supporting non-routine maintenance activities, Turner’s Specialized Welding Services (SWS) mobilized their crews to bring in additional personnel for the recovery efforts. The team swiftly scaled up, deploying over 80 skilled welders and pipefitters to retube and rebuild 10 gas-fired furnaces. The project utilized the combined resources of SWS and Turner’s nested maintenance refractory and scaffold builders.
The SWS team demonstrated the utmost professionalism in response to our needs. This event serves as a testament to the capabilities of the SWS turnaround team and their exceptional leadership.
