The aim of the conference is to ensure the continuation of operating steam turbines and its ancillary facilities with high availability and good efficiencies in the future, with the help of the exchange of experience.

Experiences – gained from changes in the market and the reactions on the manufacturer and operator side as well as in the entire service sector – shows, that this experience exchange is immensely important.

The main issues focuses on:

  • Requirements for operating and maintenance
  • Operation and revision of industrial steam turbines
  • Preservation
  • Condition monitoring system and assessment
  • Grid restoration
  • New concepts for operating
  • Gearbox and Coupling

This conference offers further aspects and opportunities – also beyond the steam turbine operation – to exchange expertise.
