FUEL MANAGEMENT (COAL & OTHER SOLID FUELS)- DECISION MAKING & CONTROL

FUEL MANAGEMENT (COAL & OTHER SOLID FUELS)- DECISION MAKING & CONTROL

20 – 21 APRIL 2017, KUALA LUMPUR, MALAYSIA

About The Course

Fuel is one of the most critical items for industries like Thermal Power Plant, Cement etc where major portion of energy budget is being spent in procuring them. For example, a cement plant of 1.60 MTPA clinker production capacity, spends around US$ 14 million in a year to buy different types & grades of solid fuels. Similarly a 240 MW thermal power plant needs to buy coal of worth US$ 55 million in a year when operating under usual PLF. Hence plant should count every penny it spends for procurement of such fuels. There are several areas of losses against which plant must guard themselves – fuel properties, impurities, transportation loss, storage & handling loss, measurement error, reporting error etc.   Therefore it is very much important to make judicious purchase decision and track the complete fuel path from mines to the boiler or kiln.

Learning Outcomes

The course enables the participants to make effective buying decisions of fuel and make complete accounting regarding fuel utilization.  After the training, the participants will learn the followings-

  • Coal as a fuel- broad characteristics & definition of important parameters
  • Alternative solid fuels to coal
  • Fuel evaluation technique
  • Costing of fuel- relevant methodologies
  • Important clauses which must be incorporated in fuel purchase agreement
  • Methodology to compensate against downgraded fuel supply
  • Methodology to compensate against short supply
  • Reconciliation of stock (material balance)
  • Reconciliation of final payment to the vendor/ supplier

Who Should Attend

  • People from Contracts or Purchase departments
  • People from Store and Materials Management division
  • People from “Fuel Cell” or “Energy Cell”
  • People from Internal Audit department

Energy Management System Implementation Course Including “Internal Auditor Training” For Thermal Power Plants

Energy Management System Implementation Course Including “Internal Auditor Training” For Thermal Power Plants

17 – 19 APRIL 2017, KUALA LUMPUR

About The Course

Thermal Power plant is one of the most energy intensive industries where energy cost could be as high as 87% of the total operating cost. Therefore it is prerequisite to cut down the input energy cost to enhance the profitability and remain competitive in the market. The best way to achieve the above is to implement robust Energy Management System (EnMS) and focus on continual improvement in Energy Performance. The course has been developed to help the power generation units to build in-house capability for establishing strong EnMS in line with the international standard ISO-50001. Apart from the implementation aspect the course also focuses on internal audit of EnMS and helps the industry to create a pool of “Internal Auditors”.

Learning Outcomes

The course enables the organization to develop in-house ability to implement EnMS and complete the requirements of ISO-50001 without engaging external consultants. After the training, the participants will learn-

  • How to initiate the EnMS implementation process in their own unit
  • How to make “Energy Accounting” for the “Power Plant”
  • How to establish applicable M&V (Measurement & Verification) protocol
  • How to conduct successful “Energy Review” (Energy Audit)

How to prepare documentation for ISO-50001 certification

Who Should Attend

  • People working in power generation units (IPP or CPP)
  • Having engineering background with minimum 3 years of field experience
  • Want to be a part of “Energy Team” within the plant
  • Want to become an MR for ISO-50001 standard
  • Wants to become an internal auditor for management system
  • Middle management cadres from industries who are involved in decision making process
