Woodland Hills, CA (PRWEB) August 20, 2013
Infocast, the leading producer of cutting-edge business intelligence conferences and networking events proudly presents the 2nd Plant DDD, to be held on November 6-8, 2013 at the Hyatt Regency Baltimore in Baltimore, MD.
The event will bring plant and decommissioning project managers together with leaders in environmental remediation, demolition and investment recovery to address key issues such as the economics of redevelopment, re-powering or disposition of assets, the effects of the end-use of property on remediation requirements and costs and how to maximize the resale value of plant assets and materials. Guidelines on how to best manage projects, from the bidding process to engineering, also will be provided.
150 or more coal plants and once-through cooled fossil power plants are likely to be decommissioned in the next few years, and many utilities will be trying to manage the decommissioning process for the first time in decades. Plant, project and decommissioning managers will need to determine the most economically beneficial course of action while managing a process that is as complex as the construction of a fossil plant itself. Plant Decommissioning, Decontamination and Demolition will feature a faculty of leading industry experts who will share critical techniques for managing the power plant decommissioning process.
A preliminary sampling of organizations already confirmed to participate in this event include: Power Plant Owners Dominion Resource Services, Inc.; Dynegy Operating Company; Xcel Energy; Brownfield Redevelopment Agency Wisconsin Department of Natural Resources; Investment Recovery firm Perry Videx LLC; and EPC leaders Black & Veatch and Burns & McDonnell who will all be sharing their first-hand experiences with plant decommissioning.
The three-day event also features a pre-Summit primer on Wednesday, November 6, 2013, the “Decommissioning, Decontamination & Dismantlement Process”.
