South Africa’s efforts at industrialisation face challenges related to the refining of products. For example, in 2021 almost 40% of refining of petroleum products will not be available.
Shutting down an industrial plant is always a last resort. Production literally stops. In South Africa the stakes are even higher due to low levels of economic growth and challenges posed by loadshedding. A skilled partner in scaffolding can assist in ensuring that shutdown maintenance is completed quickly, safely and affordably. Scaffolding plays a role in all aspects of the shutdown maintenance process.

In South Africa, five factors require consideration. These factors include availability, reliability, maintainability, safety and cost.
