Water industry operations conference coming soon

The 11th NSW Water Industry Operations Conference & Exhibition will be held from 29–30 March at Exhibition Park, Canberra.

Organised by the Water Industry Operators Association of Australia (WIOA), the event provides a chance to discover and research new water technology, equipment, services and ideas. Goals of the conference include:

  • distribution of the latest ‘operational’ technical and research-based information through platform and poster presentations;
  • an update of knowledge and skills, plus network development by operations staff through interaction with fellow water industry employees;
  • the provision of opportunities to view and discuss the latest advances in technical equipment and systems with suppliers and trade consultants.

The free exhibition allows visitors to see the latest in treatment and distribution, wastewater collection and treatment, water supply, reclaimed water or biosolids, project management, asset management, development and application of new technologies, training and safety issues from leading companies.

The conference will include several speakers, with Jeff Coyle from Kaeser Compressors presenting the technical paper ‘Blower technologies and energy efficiency opportunities’. The paper explains how aeration is an important part of biological wastewater treatment plant processes, as is the operation of an energy-efficient blower system.

With energy prices continuing to rise, understanding the compressed air demand of a system and selecting the right blower to meet these requirements is critical. Coyle will discuss the most commonly and widely used blower solutions, describing their strengths and applications as well as the critical factors that should be considered when planning a blower system.

The event is suitable for operators, managers, engineers, consultants, professionals and anyone else who has an interest in water. For more information, visit http://www.wioaconferences.org.au/nsw.htm or download the conference program.
