Due to the persistent and increasing number of corona cases, we have decided not to hold the event as a face-to-face event in Karlsruhe, as planned, but rather online with reduced participation fees.
The economic outlook of the conventional power plant fleet in Germany has relaxed only slightly compared to the last conferences. But however, some of the locations have not been able to represent the operational success economically and technically in this period; decommissioning decisions were made for them.
We will address the current topic of “Maintenance under Pandemic Conditions” with the plenary lectures followed by a panel discussion.
It is becoming increasingly important to prepare the last productive phase of operation of installations to be controlled, as well as to prepare and to carry out the decommissioning. Detailed reports on procedures will be supported by practical examples.
However, the attention should not be paid only to the plant but also to the operating and maintenance personnel. In a regressing industry it is all the more important to offer young employees an exciting and secure perspective to remain the necessary knowhow and quality awareness up to the last day of operation or for other future tasks in the power plant maintenance.
But also the traditional topics supplemented with innovative technologies should be concerned. Interesting individual measures, process optimizations at various locations, as well as innovative maintenance concepts will provide interesting proposals for everyone.
Our exhibitors partners present themselves in the accompanying trade exhibition. Discussions at the booth with the specialists provide a good opportunity for all attendees to establish or deepen business contacts, or further discuss with speakers various aspects and current questions on maintenance. To give this exchange a wider scope, we reserved a larger time block for this conference.
