The annual forum for heat plant owners, operators and maintainers to share experiences and learn from each other how to optimise plant operation...

This event is for heat plant operators and maintainers to meet each other and to share experiences – good and bad. By hearing what other operators have done to ensure appropriate fuel and optimise plant it is likely that attendees will learn how of best practice to improve their own plant performance.

The forum will be structured around the challenges of fuel, air emissions, converting coal plant to use wood fuel and plant optimization. This will be achieved by talking with relevant experts and discussing their own operating problems through facilitated group discussion.  Speakers will discuss the art of working with difficult biomass fuels, drying and fuel handling and storage to get optimal heat output

Projections on future availability of biomass fuel for combustion will be released at the Forum.

The format of the day will focus on sharing and discussion rather than sitting and listening. This will also encourage networking amongst operators so that on-going peer support can occur after the forum.

The focus of this event will be to:

  • Learn best practice from the experts and other operators
  • Learn by sharing experiences
  • Provide the information you may not know you don’t know
  • Provide opportunities for equipment suppliers, plant owners, wood fuel suppliers and operators to share ideas
  • Obtain ideas on problems operators would like addressedd
