Supporting a client in the Manufacturing sector who required a flexible and proactive maintenance partner capable of offering a broad range of tecnicians and professions through a single source. Whilst not a 'wind' project, this case study clearly shows the ability of the XL Group to support a wide range of requirements, and to support a customer with reccomendations and guidance from insepctions that has allwoed them to minimise site issues and subsequent downtime troubles.

Electrical, mechanical manpower and equipment provision. Critical support was required to support infrastructure including: Pumps / rotating bed, shakers, vessels, pipework, exchangers, valves change out and maintenance, switchboard upgrades and function testing.

Working with a manufacturing business who required support to remotely monitor and maintain an unmanned site. Through the integration of a number of Remote telemetry units, XL Group were able to assist in the 24/7 monitoring of the site, and ensure responses to alerts were dealt with in a timely manner.

Contract type: Ongoing Maintenance contract with upgrade projects therein

Value: £50,000
