Maintenance Planning

As an engineer I believe comprehensive maintenance planning is the most important aspect of a successful shutdown or a long term maintenance program for your company.

Optimising maintenance operations, minimising down times and staying on or under budget requires many disciplines and considerable experience. I have ten years experience as a Senior Contracts Officer for BHP Temco and many years experience in maintenance planning and project supervision.  Having worked on the ground as a Fitter and Machinist, and as maintenance personnel before qualifying as a mechanical engineer it gives me a unique and practical understanding of the need for thorough and effective maintenance planning.

As owner and director of AC Engineering Services I offer a reliable and flexible service.  I find by listening to and consulting with my clients, we can put effective processes in place to ensure great asset management and customer satisfaction.
