Upgrading Hydropower Plants: O&M Modernization & Optimization 2020

Upgrading HPP: O&M Modernization and Optimization will gather leaders and decision-makers from the hydroelectricity industry, namely, hydropower generator companies, HPP owners and operators, and hydro O&M operators, to discuss ongoing challenges, trends and build business relationships through productive networking and knowledge-sharing.

One of the challenges of hydropower producers is the upgrade of already existing HPPs and the improvement of O&M through the way of modernization and optimization. We will discuss how these measures improve O&M flexibility, efficiency, and lead to cost reduction and revenue enhancement. In this small-scale business-meeting, participants will learn the latest plant modernization and O&M management practices in the environment of technological innovations and digitalization.
