GE LM6000, 2500 & 1600 User Conference
Every two years the Dutch Gas Turbine Association organises a three day event, the International GE LM User Conference.
The conference is aimed at users from Europe, Asia, Africa and the Middle East of the LM6000, LM2500 and/or LM1600 Gas Turbine.
This year's conference:
Participation is open for all representatives of LM6000, LM2500 and LM1600 user companies. The conference is tailor made for operation and maintenance managers of these gas turbine types and focuses on solutions and best practices to reduce costs while improving operation and maintenance. The program encourages participants to engage with fellow users, GE and selected ISP’s (Independent Service Providers), allowing everyone to actively participate in sharing knowledge, experience and best practices.
The program of this independent LM user conference aims to provide maximum value for operation and maintenance managers by addressing operational and technical questions & issues with fellow users, GE engineers and specialized ISP’s. During the 3-day program there are multiple opportunities to ask your specific questions regarding your operational or technical problems and to receive in-depth answers and potential solutions from fellow users, GE and specialized ISP’s.
