The world’s largest user organization supporting owner/operators of 7F gas turbines promises the industry’s most robust in-person meeting of its type since the pandemic began two years ago, when the group meets at the Fairmont Dallas Hotel, May 23-27. Recall that the 7F Users Group pioneered a return to in-person conferencing last August, conducting its 30th anniversary meeting in St. Louis.
This year’s vibrant, reconfigured program promises a not-to-be-missed event. Vendor solutions highlight the mornings both Monday, May 23, and Tuesday, May 24, with traditional general sessions in the afternoons, and vendor fairs from 4 to 7 p.m. Wednesday is dedicated to general sessions. Thursday is GE Day. Friday morning is reserved for the OEM’s deep-dive knowledge-sharing program and hands-on live outage hosted by FieldCore.
It’s important to register soon to get the $445 early-bird conference fee, which increases April 23, and to assure your accommodations are at the heavily discounted $185 daily group rate (plus tax, of course), which ends May 2. An online reservation link will be provided to attendees after they register. You cannot arrange for a room at the conference rate any other way.
Stay tuned to www.powerusers.org for program updates as they become available and other announcements.
More detail: The vendor solutions presentations are arranged both days in four 30-minute sessions with four or five services providers presenting simultaneously in each session. Five platinum-sponsor presentations, aggregated in a fifth 60-minute session, conclude the morning programs.
Monday, attendees can listen to half-hour presentations by AGT Services, Certrec, Flow-Tech Industrial, HRST, PSM, APG, CTTS, Cutsforth, Emerson, Independent Turbine Consulting, Core Tech, Oilkleen, Thomassen Amcot, EthosEnergy, NEC, RelaDyne, and Tetra Engineering; plus, hour presentations by Arnold Group, Gas Path Solutions, MD&A, Shell, and TC&E.
Tuesday’s half-hour presentations are by Camfil, HRST, Integrity Power Solutions, MD&A, EagleBurgmann, JASC, Kinectrics AES, Koenig Engineering, Moog, Lectrodryer, NEC, Riverhawk, and Sulzer; plus, hour presentations by AGT Services, Doosan Turbomachinery Services, ExxonMobil, IAFD, and PSM.
The general sessions include a lineup of presentations and discussions by and among users on safety, combustion, auxiliaries, rotors, exhaust systems and components, and other topics yet to be finalized.
GE Day topics include safety; 7F fleet trends; outage planning and execution; GT systems reliability, controls basics, architecture, troubleshooting, and solutions; compressor/turbine/rotor; generator and electrical systems; parts and repairs; and combustion.
Vendor fairs will showcase the products and services from five- to six-dozen companies each night. The generous three-hour exhibit hall program allows you to visit all the companies on your punch list while taking advantage of the heavy hors d’oeuvres and open bar.
