This event is a chance for heat plant operators to meet each other and to share experiences – good and bad.

By hearing what other operators have done to ensure appropriate fuel, and optimize plant, it is likely that attendees will learn how easy it is to get to best practice.

The forum will be structured around a range of plant suppliers, maintainers and operators sharing their knowledge and experiences and attendees discussing their own operating problems through facilitated group discussion.

The format of the day will focus on sharing and discussion rather than sitting and listening. This will also encourage networking amongst operators so that on-going peer support can occur after the forum.

The focus of this event will be to:

  • Learn best practice from the experts
  • Learn by sharing experiences
  • Provide the information you may not know you don’t know
  • Provide opportunities for equipment suppliers, plant owners, wood fuel suppliers and operators to share ideas

Early bird registrations are open until 29 May. Program and registration forms are at
