Managing Your Power Piping system

Posted in Courses


This one (1) day course is primarily intended for experienced O&M staff working in thermal power and process plants, but could also be of interest to corporate engineering and management staff. Incorrectly managed piping systems can cause serious accidents leading to forced shutdowns and injuries to plant personnel.  By managing your power piping in a preventive manner, unwanted loss of production can be avoided, plant safety can be increased and overall maintenance costs can be decreased. By raising the awareness of plant personnel, it is far more likely that potential problems will be detected early, decreasing the risk of forced outages.

  • Understanding Power Piping Design
