“Excellent networking event which should NOT be missed by UK Customers and suppliers”
Organised by engineers representing the Institution of Mechanical Engineers, the annual Steam Turbine and Generator User Group in March offers attendees two days of high level technical content and knowledge sharing to support all engineers involved with steam turbine and generator assets.
This event will enable those involved in the management, operation and maintenance of steam turbines and generators to discuss common problems and issues. Join us to exchange ideas, identify potential solutions and learn about new developments at our leading technical event offering peer reviewed and high level content. Hear directly from OEMs, service providers and end users of steam turbines, generators and large motors about the latest technologies available. Learn from case studies in plant operations, and best practice in turbine and generator service.
The Institution’s User Groups encourage open debate and problem solving to our technical and specialist communities. Hear form key peer reviewed presentations and promote the sharing of experiences among the steam turbine generator community. Engage and network with thought leaders and decision makers across the industry.
Whether you are involved in the design, manufacture, operation, management and maintenance of steam turbine and generator assets, this is THE event to stay up to date and benefit from the shared experience of the turbine engineering community.
2018 KEYNOTE CONFIRMED:
The Transforming Energy Industry - Barbara Vest, Director of Generation, Energy UK
The UK energy industry is transforming as we continue to lead Europe in decarbonising our economy. As our traditional model comprising large fossil fuel transmission connected generation assets changes with the development of increased embedded capacity Energy UK is addressing the future of power generation through our ‘Future Power Market Design’ project. This project will lead the debate on how the challenges facing the sector should be addressed as well as prioritising policy and regulatory changes required to facilitate the transition to a smarter, more flexible, low carbon and secure system at least cost to consumers. Barbara Vest will be discussing the key challenges facing the sector over the next decade and the potential solutions to managing this transition.
