“Effective Strategies for Planning & Executing Mill Outages” was the theme for our 2020 Winter Conference held at the Queensbury Hotel in Glens Falls, New York this past January. A strong turnout of over 40 local mill and supplier personnel received valuable advice and insight from industry experts regarding successful tools to get the most from planned mill outages.
Conference Moderator, Larry Hill (Industry Technical Consultant for NALCO Water) assembled a wonderful roster of presenters covering critical topics such as mill safety, concerns from an operations perspective, contract management, mitigating risk with new equipment as well as lessons learned from a career filled with outage experiences.
