Proper and informed design, construction, operation and maintenance are mandatory if the Heat Recovery Steam Generator (HRSG) is to provide dependable and cost effective service.
For the last 10 years the Australasian HRSG Users Group (AHUG) has met annually to discuss all aspects concerning HRSGs. Recently the Steering Committee and attendees have noted that many of the failure/damage mechanisms occurring in HRSGs are similar to those that occur in conventional boilers, and that other equipment in combined cycle plants have the same issues as in fossil plants. So in 2019 AHUG is changing to ABHUG (Australasian Boiler and HRSG Users Group). ABHUG will continue to concentrate on HRSG aspects but will add the technical areas common in fossil and HRSG plants such as tube failures, steam turbine, high energy piping, valves and regulatory issues.
ABHUG 2019 will feature presentations on plant operation, maintenance, layup, and chemistry. It will also feature interactive discussions with presenters, equipment specialists and users. Several workshops will be conducted during this event. The subject of the workshops will be announced later. All attendees will be encouraged to raise specific technical problems with their Boilers, HRSGs, Steam Turbines and Valves, and then participate while other attendees join in to share their experiences and debate solutions.
Exhibition and Sponsorship: Space is available for exhibits associated with all aspects of Boilers, HRSGs, Steam Turbines and Valves. Also available are ABHUG 2019 sponsorship opportunities.
