The PROFIBUS Group is supporting the Automation and Control for Energy conference at the Marriot Renaissance Manchester City Centre Hotel, UK.

C&I specialists throughout Power Generation, Oil and Gas industries are facing the same sets of challenges: obsolescence in legacy systems; stringent reliability and efficiency targets set against tight budgets; and the increased risk of cyber infiltration that comes with increased levels of digitisation.

Delegates of Automation and Control for Energy will learn from the leading energy companies’ strategies for dealing with this, often conflicting, set of demands. Solutions presented will be holistic; covering technology, processes & human factors.

Delegates will benefit from both Power and Oil company case studies in the plenary talks. Choose from Oil & Gas or Power Generation speciality tracks and take the opportunity to drill down into technical and operational problems in roundtable discussions.

Conference content will include:
?    Optimisation of legacy systems for greater reliability, higher throughput and less outage time
?    Protection of control systems from cyber attack with minimum disruption of plants/platforms and outputs
?    Construction of an effective business case for investment in control systems and equipment
?    Ensuring IEC61508 compliance beyond checking the guarantees of the supplier
?    Compare suppliers\\\' offerings at the ACE exhibition adjoined to the conference for better informed upgrade/optimisation decisions
?    Extended networking and discussion sessions will allow you to share tips and experiences with other delegates
?    Cross-sector benchmarking with the Petrochemicals industry
