EEMUA Seminar: Maintaining the mechanical integrity of ageing plant


Bowburn Hall Hotel Durham




Registration is now closed. Please contact the events team for more details if you wish to attend.

Ageing mechanisms such as corrosion, erosion, fatigue, obsolescence and calibration failure should form part of a site integrity management system. This seminar looks specifically at progress in the field of maintenance with respect to the mechanical integrity of ageing plant, and how things are changing.


​Maintaining the mechanical integrity of ageing plant is a key focus of concern when managing assets containing hazardous fluids. The release of EEMUA 231 in the UK helped establish a benchmark for integrity management. The issue of ageing plant is just part of the overall management of the integrity of a site's assets and it is closely linked to the effectiveness of the robust maintenance regime, among others. This seminar looks at progress in the field, and how things are changing.

Who should attend:

Those people responsible on a day-to-day basis for ensuring mechanical integrity of plant and equipment, primarily those where COMAH Regulations apply, but also those outside the scope of COMAH where there are hazardous substances present.
