Solving the Skills Gap in Sulphur Recovery.
The skills gap in the sulphur industry is growing due to the changing nature of the workforce and traditional ways of doing things are no longer working effectively. Knowledge is lost with retiring subject matter experts and other experienced operations staff leaving a reducing pool of SMEs. In this white paper a case study explores how knowledge automation solved the skills gap in a sulphur recovery unit at a major US refinery.
Optimizing the sulphur complex while minimizing costs and avoiding unexpected upsets or shutdowns continues to be a significant challenge. This challenge is further exacerbated by increasing external impacts, such as more stringent environmental regulations, and the retirement of experts taking with them valuable undocumented knowledge. In today’s automated and technology-driven world, traditional approaches no longer suffice to remain competetive.
In this white paper Christian McDermott (Voovio), Angie Slavens (UniverSUL Consulting) and Elmo Nasato (Nasato Consulting) explore:
- What challenges sulphur recovery units face.
- How the skills gap and expectations of a younger generation are affecting training at sulphur recovery units.
- A case study on how a major US refinery effectively minimized permit violations attributed to human error through knowledge automation.
- Approaches to address the skills gap in the sulphur recovery industry.
