Following the Intakes Outfalls workshop on May 16-17, Global Water Intelligence are holding the second Australian Desalination Short School in Adelaide on May 18. The first Australian School was held at NCEDA Rockingham after the IDA World Congress in September 2011.
The Desalination Short School provides an opportunity to learn the technical aspects of some high visibility world-class projects. The course offers a highly practical and interactive case-study approach, delivered by two very experienced and well-known practitioners from the desalination industry.
“We’ll be focussing on the practical aspects of seawater desalination and the examples we’ll be profiling will be from our own first-hand experiences”, says Tom Pankratz, Editor of Water Desalination Report and one of the course experts. “It won’t be just a slide show. We’re fully conversant with all the details of these projects as we’ve actually been involved in their design and delivery”. He promises a lively, in-depth look at how decisions are made and the pitfalls to avoid. The course will cover feasibility and pilot studies, commissioning, testing and the post-completion issues of specific plants, from the Middle East, Europe, Asia Pacific and the Americas.
Participants will be drawn from contractors, consultants, offtakers, water utilities, suppliers, O&M personnel and researchers – all those looking to gain additional knowledge and an extra edge in the desal field.
The School is presented in association with the International Centre of Excellence in Water Resources Management. A 20% discount is available for delegates attending both the Intakes Outfalls Workshop and the Desalination Short School.
