Conference Overview
Supported by over 70 hydro utilities from around the world, CEATI International's Hydraulic Plant Life and Dam Safety Interest Groups will collaborate once again to produce the hydro industry's premier utility and dam owner focused gathering.

Owning and operating hydropower projects requires the best available knowledge to improve reliability, reduce outage timing and cost, recognize potential failure modes and understand the associated risks and consequences. It is imperative that dam and hydro plant owners, regulators and consulting engineers maintain and advance their expertise and knowledge of critical equipment. Due to the aging workforce and retirement of experienced personnel, today's hydropower professionals are left with fewer opportunities to gain experience.

CEATI's 2016 hydropower conference will bring together hydro experts to discuss key challenges facing the industry; strategies for the life extension of hydro assets and continued performance of dams and powerplants for the near, medium and long term.

The conference will offer hydro professionals a unique opportunity to deliberate on both short and long term reliability issues, keeping projects operational, remediation and rehabilitation as well as succession planning and training strategies. Focus will be on the optimum and efficient operation of hydro facilities to meet the needs of all stakeholders while considering the needs and protection of the public and the environment.

The program will include case studies, best practices, lessons learned, and panel discussions, and will identify knowledge gaps to be addressed.
