Biggest IEEE PES T&D Conference & Exposition Dallas, Texas May 2-5, 2016

2016-22-06

More than 700 companies and thousands of professionals took part in the biggest T&D conference and exposition in the industry at Dallas. Leading power industry companies came together in order to share new ideas and the emerging technologies and products that will shape energy solutions for years to come.

The theme of this year’s show was “Go Big,” and reflected the size of the show and a mind-set for the current state of the industry.

The conference opened at the AT&T stadium Monday evening. There was a marching band, the Dallas Cowboys Cheerleaders, pyrotechnics, lots of food, challenging games of skill on the sidelines, and it was a good possibility to meet with old and new friends. The next three days were all business. There were thousands of utility professionals walking around inspecting all the wares the vendors brought.

Optromix Company demonstrated Distributed Temperature Sensing (DTS) system. DTS allows to detect temperature increases at the controlled assets and send “alarm” signals to the monitoring equipment to prevent overheating before it can happen. A large number of transformers companies showed an interest in DTS solutions for transformers. We had many discussions with the exhibitors and some companies offered cooperation with us. Optromix was concentrated on searching new partners, customers, and producers of power cables. Also, we were looking for engineering and emergency monitoring companies.

Through much of the conference, the exhibit hall was full of activity. Many of the exhibiting companies held information sessions providing lively, detailed explanations about products. Visitors will be able to see innovative solutions to prepare for the future. It was also a great place to make important contacts and meet the movers and shakers of the T&D industry.

Our company was focused on researching partners and customers. Our exhibition product was demonstrated on the COAL-GEN exhibit floor. COAL-GEN is the industry’s most dynamic event covering the latest topics affecting the design, development, upgrading, operation and maintenance of coal-fueled power plants. COAL-GEN focuses on the solutions of today and the technologies of tomorrow.

We presented our innovative product – Scroiler. This unit demonstrates the new effective way to perform wet air scrubbing. Scroiler worked in closed water circuit for about 20 minutes during the exhibition. After these 20 minutes, the faucet water was colored in light brown , because of the dust particles floating in the air. And we collected this dust! Our product innovation catches the interest among most of the participants, especially in atendees from Middle East. Scroiler doesn't require the high water quality. You can use different types of water. Scroiler can perform air scrubbing depending on pollution composition. After the exhibition, demonstration model was transported to Boston. We are ready to arrange and organize the presentation of Scroiler if you are interested to see how it works.
