 Why attend this meeting? 

Here are just five reasons why you should attend the Power Generation Asset Management Symposium in Australia.

5 Reasons to Attend the Power Generation Symposium - Australia 

We will be doing a deep dive into power plant integrity management issues. Major failures in piping systems over the past 30 years highlight the need to establish an effective maintenance and inspection program to prevent future failures. During this symposium, you will learn how systems’ integrity is affected. You will also learn about latest changes in the Code requirements, what other utilities do to tackle these issues and how to manage your data.

Intertek Engineering Consulting (previously APTECH Engineering) has been studying power plant cycling since 1979 and has been an industry leader in determining the impact of flexible generation on equipment life and the cost of. Anyone who wants to learn more about flexible generation; industry trends, technology, equipment and portfolio management issues, energy market challenges and opportunities, with case studies from the U.S. and around the world.

What past attendees to US Symposiums have said: 

“The years of knowledge Intertek has on flexibility and the real-world applications given were very informative”

"I like the incorporated how to steps on planning your Maintenance Program with Aware."  

"The size of the group and member interaction with so much in common is good. Enjoyed it!!"  

"As always this is a very useful informative and fun conference. I really appreciated the learning and sharing."  

"Great job. Relaxed setting and very informative. Thank you."
