Asset Performance Networks (AP-Networks) is proud to be a sponsor of ERTC 2019, the single largest gathering of refining and petrochemical leadership within Europe.

Numerous factors impact the long-range plan, from the time between turnarounds, to the scope of each turnaround, to the capabilities of the organization. That’s in addition to the growing necessity of effective project integration and the ever-changing challenges and constraints the event team must contend with. In order to take control of this chaos and optimize the long-range plan, change is needed throughout the industry, along with a renewed focus on turnaround governance.

These are the topics that will be discussed during the How to Optimize the Asset Long-Range Plan roundtable on Tuesday, November 5th at 16:55. The discussion will be facilitated by Mr. John M.G. Alkemade and Mr. Thashen Pillay.

John Alkemade is the Managing Director, EMEA (Europe, Middle East, and Africa) for AP-Networks. He possesses more than 25 years of project and turnaround management experience spanning the energy, oil and gas, and chemical industries. In his current role, John shares responsibility for the development and growth of the company’s presence in Europe, the Middle East, and Africa. He has been integral in expanding the global presence of AP-Networks, and, consequently, for growing AP-Networks’ consulting staff in the EMEA office.

Thashen Pillay is a Senior Consultant with AP-Networks. He has honed his skills in delivering change strategies, enhancing team cohesion, and inspiring stakeholder engagement by serving in leadership, operational, and training roles in culturally and geographically diverse environments.
