In the last decade, the understanding of the importance of safety, debris, ice and security booms has increased rapidly. However, the state of the art in the design of booms has proceeded relatively slowly in comparison. In this presentation, 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 or National Hydropower Association Operational Excellence program will discuss how to learn from and prevent reoccurrence of events by information sharing and Andy Peters, Director of Markets for Pacific Netting Products will provide a site specific exampe of boom design.
Our world may has definitely changed over the past few months, and one result is that now the need to provide a community connection for the hydroelectric power industry is even greater.
HYDROVISION International was originally scheduled to take place July 14 to 16 in Minneapolis, Minn., U.S. To honor these original dates, we’re hosting an online information exchange for the global hydropower industry. The HYDRO+ Series will bring together the hydro community for perspective and discussion on issues affecting hydro resources, meeting challenges and ensuring a future sustainability of hydro.
Over three days, attendees can take advantage of up to six learning opportunities targeted to their interests.
