Cat Tech demonstrated excellent leadership and quality of work. The team came up with good practical ideas to tackle issues which were executed successfully.

Mechanical Engineering Team Lead

Cat Tech showed knowledge and enthusiasm when questioned which was backed up with conduct in the field. A job well done –Thank you.

Project Lead

Overall an excellent performance by the onsite team. Good clear communication with plant staff. Work completed to plan in a safe manner. All discussion points taken on board and all safety requirements were met.

Contracts Manager

Many thanks for the work that Cat-Tech performed during the TAR. This turnaround was the safest major TA completed to date and the role that Cat Tech played in achieving this is much appreciated by everyone on site. We passed a significant milestone on our journey to zero safety incident.

Turnaround Manager

Very smooth dense loading, above the target density and consistent profile throughout

Lead Process Engineer

Another first class job, with continual improvement from previous works, which were also considered to be excellent

Reliability Engineer, LNG Plant

I’d just like to add my thanks as well. The planning and response time was excellent with such short notice. The full work scope was carried out safely and efficiently especially in regard to the reactive nature of some of the tasks.  The suggestion in the use of the dust extraction hoppers proved extremely worthwhile as no fines where present upon restart. The bed loadings also appear fine and the catalyst is performing well.

Maintenance Manager

Also from our side thank you for the quick response, good safety performance and high quality of work.  Unit has restarted very smoothly and catalyst seems to perform very well

Plant Manager

The work done by Cat Tech was greatly appreciated by both ourselves and the end user and they gave positive feedback on the job done so thank you for that also.  I hope you and all at Cat Tech are well and continue to be safe and successful during this uncertain time.

Catalyst Vendor

Noting this was the first time Cat Tech has worked at our facility, the project was an absolute success.
