Neway provides boiler cleaning services and essential safety standby duties on latest shutdown at Essar Oil UK refinery

NORTH West industrial cleaning specialist Neway has completed a series of skilled and demanding services for the boiler maintenance shutdown at the Essar Oil UK Stanlow refinery in Cheshire.

Ellesmere Port-based Neway supplied specialist industrial cleaning operatives to help and support the completion of the recent boiler shutdown at the refinery where safe, effective and efficient working procedures are paramount.

Neway managing director Wayne Sides said the company supplied teams of skilled cleaning operatives on three Essar Oil UK boiler shutdowns throughout 2014. They used a variety of tried-and-trusted techniques accompanied with Neway’s experienced supervisors and  skilled operatives, who play a very important part in any major shutdown.

Neway also supplied operatives for stand-by duties, who are vitally important for any confined-space working and act as a safety lifeline for engineers working inside the boiler.

Mr Sides said: “This work showcases Neway’s ability to supply a complete industrial cleaning service with skilled staff managing the work and enabling the targets to be met within the required timescale and, most important, safely.

“There are very strict procedures for petrochemical industry shutdowns. These require specially-trained staff with turnaround skills and knowledge of all health-and-safety issues along with the certification and permits required to carry out the tasks safely. Neway’s supervisors have all the requirements and experience to carry out these procedures correctly.”

The company used specialist techniques and equipment to help clean boilers internally such as the deluge wash, which is an effective and efficient low-pressure cleaning procedure.

Neway supervisors ensured that all work was carried out to the highest standards. This required detailed communication throughout the shutdown using radios to pass-on crucial information and to keep in contact with staff working inside the boilers. Supervisors also carried out fire-watch duties.

Neway’s land-based and offshore industrial cleaning services provides solutions for the petro-chemical sector, chemical plants, automotive industry, wind farms, paper mills, food and drink industry and many others. Its services include UHP water jetting, heat exchanger cleaning, chemical cleaning, surface preparation, high level and confined space cleaning, and project management for shutdowns.

All Neway operators and frontline supervisory staff receive intensive health-and safety and specialist equipment training. Neway offers emergency call-out and long-term contract tailored to each customer’s needs.

Neway has two other divisions within the group. Neway Marine provides a range of specialist maritime cleaning services including for ships and docks.
