Workshop 1- Combined-cycle/cogen plants in their mid-life crisis, modernizing versus shutting down- Many combined-cycle/cogenplants are at the mid-point of their designed service life, so their owners must evaluate big maintenance questions like: Replacing entire HRSG modules versus chemically cleaning them; assessing the remaining life of piping systems; plus many more investment issues

Workshop 2- Combined-cycle Capital projects; Managing risk in new construction and major outages is a high-level seminar focused on managing large, capital-intensive combined-cycle projects.  Based on lessons we learned during the 1990s boom in combined-cycle construction, our course will help today's developers create new projects that are reliable, durable, and profitable. 

Main Conference, March 14-15, 2017. This two-day Conference has our signature open forum about all things combined-cycle, driven by attendee Q & A, including these case-study presentations:
  • Film-forming amines cut corrosion rates in HRSGs
  • Complying with all the different codes for high-chrome steels
  • Combined-cycle emissions during transient ops
  • Combined-cycle monitoring & diagnostics using pattern recognition software

We're concluding this year's conference with an educational and epicurean treat:  a complimentary tour of an advanced, engineering lab, plus a Texas-style BBQ!  Our "Thank que barbeque & tour" will be hosted by Stress Engineering Services, Inc., at its Testing and Metallurgy laboratory.  The tour starts Wed., March 15 at noon after the last conference session, and drops us back at the hotel approximately at 3:30pm.  Tour is full.

For 25 years running,

the HRSG User’s Group has been providing conferences with problem-solving Q&A forums, and timely, insightful presentations. Our upcoming conference (March 13-15, 2017) will continue providing excellent training, while adding an entirely new workshop on combined-cycle construction, just in time for the expected boom in new construction projects. Don’t confuse our conference with any other events in our industry. Ours is the biggest, the best, and the original! If you want to attend the time-tested HRSG conference that focuses on users, where excellent material, presentations and lessons learned are shared, we invite you to join us along with the hundreds of repeat attendees who help make this the only HRSG conference worth attending.

Our open forum fixes HRSGs!

Most conferences in our industry schedule too many presentations, but HRSG User’s Group Conferences accept only a handful of them, so that most of the agenda can be spent on our open forums, where real users with real problems, raise their toughest technical questions. Our entire assembly of other users, consultants, and suppliers, pass the microphone around the room to brainstorm the problems, and solve them.

Open to all

The HRSG User's Group is an industry leader among user groups serving this sector of the market in that ALL conference and workshop sessions are open to users, consultants, and manufacturers alike. This provides the broadest possible perspective and experience base for combined-cycle/cogeneration HRSG training.  The HRSG User's Group reserves the right to determine the registrant's eligibility.
