For cold storage owners, KACS's Integrated Operation and Maintenance concept:

  • Significantly reduces management time input.
  • Allows for a multi-level independent maintenance review, followed by clear interfaces between KACS management and the client:
    • Procedures and manuals are written by KACS and validated by the client.
    • The client supplies standard technical specifications.
    • In turn, KACS reviews and updates technical documentation before the contract documents are prepared and signed.
    • As KACS starts the implementation of the scope of work, it is the client who audits our performance.
    • KACS writes reports on the technical and contractual aspects of the project, allowing the client to analyze the results of its work.

KACS’s IOM concept is based on partnership principles.

  • These include:
    • An integrated project team, comprising both KACS and client personnel.
    • An incentive scheme to align the objectives of KACS and its client, including:
      • HSEQ management.
      • reliability and availability.
      • plant integrity.
      • production objectives.
      • cost reduction.
