Why Managing Aging Plants?

Maintaining aging industrial facilities is by no means an easy task. Worldwide many plants are about to reach – or have already surpassed – the life expectancies specified when they were originally designed and built. China is no exception as throughout the country plant managers and technicians are faced with several challenges posed by aging equipment and assets.

To make sure industrial plants can continue to run both safely and productively, information is needed to find the best possible solution and make the right decisions for the future. At the Managing Aging Plants Conference and Exhibition China – which will be held in conjunction with the Fugitive Emissions Summit China – you will learn about key issues of managing aging plants, including risk assessment, monitoring, inspection, and testing, as well as about how technological trends such as 3D printing and the Industrial Internet of Things (IIOT) are starting to play an important role.

Why a conference?

Even in this digital era where everyone can be connected online, still nothing surpasses the experience of face-to-face meetings and lively discussions in an environment that is designed to maximize the opportunities for this. The 2-day Managing Aging Plants Conference and Exhibition China offers a platform for industry professionals to update their knowledge, exchange information, and share experiences in workshops, Q&A sessions, and networking during the breaks.
