This biennial event is addressed to all manufacturers, planners, operators, insurers and all professionals, researchers and decision-makers interested in technology and its environment.

The aim of the conference is to ensure the steam turbine operation on a high availability and effectiveness also in the future.

A changing political context and, not least, the associated changes in the market require corresponding adjustments on the manufacturer and operator side as well as in the entire service area.

People change, young colleagues join in. Against this background, the exchange of experience can make its contribution to mastering the tasks facing us.

The main issues of the conference are:

  • Damage caused by standstill, load change, partial load
  • Quality assurance in new construction and revision
  • Operating experience with new technologies
  • Operation and overhaul of industrial steam turbines
  • New concepts for maintenance and repair
  • “Energiewende” (Energy transition): Opportunities and possibilities for the steam turbine
  • Digitisation in maintenance

As in previous years, our cooperation partners present themselves at an accompanying technical exhibition. In both the discussions and the supporting program, all participants will have the opportunity for intense exchange of ideas and to maintain and improve their business contacts with the colleagues present.

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

The VGB Working Group “Steam Turbines” will answer your questions and support the exchange of experience by personally contacting you at the VGB booth in the Heumakt Hall during the breaks of the event.
