London Power Forum 2011

14th – 15th November 2011

Siemens Energy Service & Hilton Hotel Gateshead

CPD Accredited Event

The 2011 Power Forum will offer delegates the opportunity to visit the facility of Siemens Energy Service in Newcastle and hear their leading engineers discuss topics of relevance in the arena of power generation equipment. The event will consist of a detailed tour of the Siemens facility where delegates will be able to see and examine equipment related to power generation and a relevant lecture programme designed by Siemens and the Organising Committee.

The onsite tour will include the assembly of steam turbines and generators, the manufacture of steam turbine components and blades, dynamic balancing and training in wind and steam turbines.

The lecture programme will include discussion on the power generation market, operations, maintenance regimes and typical failure modes in wind (onshore and offshore) and gas/steam turbines and generators.

The programme will be relevant and useful to any individual looking to learn about the technical background to power generation insurance. The Forum this year will be a purely technical training event.

    Places are limited in view of the restricted numbers allowed in the Siemens facility. The Organising Committee reserve the right to allocate places. It is recommended that you apply promptly to avoid disappointment.

    The facility has a turn around of equipment and it will not be possible to predict what will be available for viewing at the time. However, the facility is busy and it is envisaged that there will be many items of interest in place at the time of the event.

    Delegates will be split into two groups and half will attend the facility and the other half will attend the lectures in the hotel on the Monday afternoon. The groups will be reversed for the Tuesday morning session. The Forum will start with lunch at midday on the 14th and finish after lunch on the 15th November at 14.30. The timings will allow delegates enough time to travel to and from Newcastle on those days.

    The event is open to any individuals from the Power Generation companies and they would be most welcome.

    The Organising Committee is keen to promote the education of new individuals into this sector. With this in mind they have already been able to offer some limited places at discounted rate.
