About the event

Whether you are involved in the operation, design, maintenance, service, or upgrading of steam turbine or generator assets, the User Group is the forum for engineers and professionals to meet, network, and learn from the shared experience of the Steam Turbine and Generator community.

Join two days of technical presentations, panel discussions, and Q&A sessions to get a thorough understanding of the current landscape, together with all the latest technical and regulatory developments affecting the operation, inspections, maintenance and upgrade of your engineering assets.

Peer-reviewed presentations from engineering end-users, manufacturers, service providers, and experts will share technical details, best practices, and lessons learned from recent projects, enabling you to effectively benchmark your organisation and take back valuable insights to ensure your organisation maximises output, increases safety and minimises plant downtime.
