One of the largest family-owned companies in the Benelux, specializing in extracting raw materials, relies on Vaikon for its semi-annual shutdown of one of its sites. During these shutdowns, our service engineers inspect all slurry pumps and overhaul them where necessary. The main pumps at this site are located onboard a mobile sand separation plant and can only be reached by water at the beginning and end of the day. A maintenance operation like this requires thorough planning and preparation to ensure smooth execution.


A team of four Vaikon service engineers conducted the inspection and on-site maintenance for all of the plant’s slurry pumps, all within a tight, predefined schedule. With the customer’s equipment precisely registered in its system, Vaikon could draw up and communicate a detailed scope and planning with the client. Tedious planning ensured the service engineers had the right tools and spare parts during the shutdown.


The entire fleet of pumps was inspected and overhauled over three days, resulting in the installation remaining operational without additional downtime until the next shutdown. The customer was satisfied with the efficient execution and seamless operation ensured by Vaikon’s expertise and meticulous planning.

Thorough planning and ensures a smooth and successful maintenance shutdown, keeping the plant operational without hiccups.
