IPUC 2011 - Call for papers
PUMP USER CONFERENCE
Johannesburg, South Africa. 13-15 September 2011
FIRST ANNOUNCEMENT AND CALL FOR PAPERS
ADAPTING PUMPING SYSTEMS FOR AN ERA OF LIMITED AND EXPENSIVE POWER
In the past pumping systems were designed taking into account the old realities of abundant and relatively cheap electricity.
Production stability and reliability was king. Now power supply is limited, unreliable and increasingly expensive. IPUC 2011 will focus on latest
developments around the world designed to address this new environment and how to modify existing systems without incurring a crippling financial burden.
Particular emphasis will be placed on the utilities â€“ water and electricity â€“ where the World in general and Africa in particular,
face impending crises of supply and infrastructure failure, with vast implications for health and quality of life.
IPUC 2011 is proudly hosted by Harry Rosen of TAS, in association with the South African Institution of Mechanical Engineering (SAIMechE).
It is the leading pump conference in South Africa focused on the mining, petrochemical, industrial, bulk water and waste water industries.
In this two day conference, leading experts both international and local will share their wealth of knowledge and experience on pumping systems,
and present papers on tried and tested solutions as well as effective problem solving techniques using the latest technology.
The target audience will be pump manufacturers, plant engineers, consulting engineers, maintenance managers, mine managers, production managers and project managers. The conference is held in conjunction with the Afriwater Water and Waste Exhibition which will showcase the latest products and services available in the pump industry.
