ETD successfully hosted a 3-Day Conference on ‘Power Plant Operation & Flexibility’ in July 2018 at The Institute of Materials, Minerals and Mining (IOM3), London.

The overall aim of this Conference was to provide an international forum for the exchange of knowledge, information, experience and data where possible. Hence plant owners and operators were the prime audience in this conference. It also attracted several researchers, plant manufacturers and inspection bodies. The underlying aim was ‘how to reduce costs associated with plant maintenance and cycling’. Key aspects were engineering design and materials R&D, cost analysis and plant management/ maintenance.

Between 11 and 18 February 2014, ETD Consulting successfully ran three 2 day Plant Life Management Foundation Courses (LMF courses) at our training centre near London.

The courses, ranging from LMF1 (Basic) to LMF3 (Advanced) were well attended by delegates from a number of utilities in the UK and from elsewhere in Europe.

In particular, three delegates from Scotland were able to attend LMF1 and LMF2 courses remotely through our state of the art videoconference facility, saving their employers the time and costs. They were able to interact with the course trainers and participate in debate and discussion with the other course attendees as if they were in the training centre itself!

Course outlines and registration details for the LMF courses can be accessed here.

The LMF courses will be repeated in June 2014

If you would like to attend the June 2014 courses, either at our training centre or by videolink from your site, or have any further enquiries, please contact us
