14th Annual Asia Pacific V94.3A/V84.3A Users’ Conference

14th Annual Asia Pacific V94.3A/V84.3A Users’ Conference

The Users’ Conference is organized annually to provide industry members with an open forum for dialogue to share, learn, and improve operation and maintenance practices related to gas turbines for power generation.

The conference attracts C-suite management and senior engineers from Power Plant companies in the Asian region. Rotating amongst Asian countries such as Malaysia, UAE, Vietnam, China and New Zealand, the conference returns to Singapore once again after a 10 years absence.

For 2018, key speakers from power plant companies will share their knowledge and experience in gas turbines operations and maintenance; as well as leading engineers from Siemens Gas Turbines’ Division updating the delegates on the latest innovations and case studies. Each day of the conference would end with a networking dinner, providing ample opportunities for delegates and speakers to share openly their experience and extend the knowledge sharing beyond the conference room.

A site visit to a power plant on Jurong Island will also take place on day 1 of the conference, allowing especially foreign delegates, an opportunity to see first hand the smooth operations of a Singapore power plant.
