MTI to Co-host Managing Aging Plants Conference 

MTI in cooperation with KCI Publishing is organizing a two-day Conference and Expo devoted to “Managing Aging Plants” (MAP), March 3-4, 2015, in Düsseldorf, Germany. The MAP event will provide an in-depth look at a critical topic that many of the industrial plants currently in operation in Europe are about to reach, or have already surpassed: the life expectancy specified when they were designed and built.

The Conference will include access to 30 technical presentations and 7 workshops, provided by some of the industry’s leading problem solvers. A few of the many presentation topics include: Managing aging plants from the perspective of a multi-national operator; Aging plants in North-West Europe: What we can learn from the perspective of the MORE4CORE Project; Management of aged equipment lacking documentation; The use of fitness for service assessments in aging plants; Aging plants: a challenge for on-site metal analysis; An insurer’s perspective on managing aging plants; and How much is your aging plant out of control. This is just a smallsample of an outstanding conference program that will take on one of the industry’s hottest topics.

Additional presentations, such as “Sealing aging equipment” and “Fugitive emission management”,  will be supplemented by a series of special workshops, which will focus on Risk based inspection; Material selection for replacement & interface; The role of safety culture and safety leadership in managing aging plants; Steam reformer furnaces (moderated by MTI EuroTAC Chair, Dr. Dietlinde Jakobi of Schmidt + Clemens); Fitness for service; Corrosion under insulation; and Plastic materials in corrosive environments.

Many times, some of the most valuable information exchanged at technical meetings occurs during breaks. The first-ever Managing Aging Plants Conference & Expo will include plenty of opportunities to network with colleagues from around the world in the exhibit hall and during a social program assembled by co-host KCI. The first step toward tapping the latest knowledge and finding new resources is signing up. There is still time to register for this groundbreaking event and limited stand space is still available for prospective exhibitors interested in interacting with plant engineering professionals.
