Cyclops is a fast-growing and dynamic company specialized in project management. As a flexible
and independent partner, we analyse and realize every project in close relationship with our clients. We take ownership of the project, apply an integrated project approach, and dedicate only the appropriate resources with the right experience and skills.

Cyclops’ Business Unit Turnaround Management (or BU TAR, for short) specializes in the coordination of the lengthy preparation and fast-tracked execution phase of a turnaround. More importantly, the business unit focuses on making sure that the next turnaround can benefit from the lessons learned of the previous one.

There are basic principles that should be applied to effectively prepare and execute turnarounds, but the method of application differs from company to company. Cyclops is in a unique position: not only to bring in the experience of managing industrial investment projects, but also to gather and consolidate different best practices and methods and share the expertise and knowledge.

We want to ensure that the most appropriate people, framework, processes, and software are invested to ensure a high probability of successful turnaround. To make this happen, a motivated construction supervisor is a must.
