Why You Should Attend

16th Outage Management for Power Plants

Run your outages cost-effectively. As it has for the last decade, this annual meeting provides power generation professionals with proven case studies on how to run outages efficiently without sacrificing operational excellence. With the evolving and improving outage management techniques that have surfaced in the last year, the conference addresses solutions for aging facilities to integrate new technologies to optimize costs and gain the most value from the plans.

Heads of outage management, plant management and overhauls from power plants will share experiences, industry best practices and lessons learned in the on-going management of outages. The discussions will cover the complexities of planning and scheduling, outage readiness programs, budget tracking, preventative and predictive maintenance, execution of the outage, availability of quality crafts, scope development and control, regulatory / technical requirements, metrics, safety awareness, and risk management.

The 16th OMPP meeting will be co-located with the 9th Annual Chem/Petrochem and Refinery Shutdowns and Turnarounds Conference, which is the leading event for Shutdowns/Turnarounds, Maintenance and Reliability professionals from the chemical, petrochemical and refining industries.
