On July 21, Hydro Review will be hosting a webcast that will increase attendees’ understanding of the importance of safety, debris, ice and security booms.
Attendees at this webcast — called Boom Design for Safety, Debris and Security — will hear from three experts who will discuss that while understanding of the importance of booms has increased rapidly in the past decade, the state-of-the-art in the design of booms has proceeded relatively slowly in comparison.
David Bonin, senior engineer, hydrotechnical at Hatch, will discuss past boom failures and lessons learned to advance industry understanding of boom design. Jim Miller, chair of the National Hydropower Association’s Operational Excellence program, will discuss how to learn from and prevent reoccurrence of events by information sharing. Andy Peters, director of markets for Pacific Netting Products, will provide a site-specific example of boom design.
This webcast is sponsored by Pacific Netting Products, Hatch and the National Hydropower Association. It will be moderated by Elizabeth Ingram, content director for Hydro Review and HYDROVISION International.
