Nextgen – The Renewable Exhibition

Byworth, along with our good friends Janfire will once again be exhibiting at the European Bioenergy Conference at the Nextgen exhibition which is being held at Stoneleigh Park on the 8th-9th October.

Janfire will have one of their revolutionary (in more ways than one!) wood pellet burners on show and both companies will have staff on hand to answer all your questions about all things Biomass, energy supply contracts and of course the Renewable Heat Incentive (RHI).

Visitors have free entry at the exhibition.

You certainly have nothing to lose but perhaps a lot to gain (particularly if you currently burn an off-grid fuel) so why not pop down and see us on stand F20?

CEA ANNOUNCES BRAND NEW CONFERENCES FOR 2014

The CEA (Combustion Engineering Association) is hosting more conferences this year.

The CEA is a registered educational charity that aims to improve the understanding and development of the combustion industry. Their 80-year-history is filled with knowledge of science and best practice in regards to combustion engineering. They too promote efficiency in the utilisation of all types of fuel.

With sustainable and renewable energy being a commonplace global aspiration, the need for a better use of fuel combustion has never been greater.

After the significant interest shown at previous conferences by those wanting to know more about the risk aspects of boilers, the CEA are introducing a new conference dedicated to the subject.

The conference includes the safe operation and management of steam and hot water boiler plants and a new specific risk assessment based conference is now available. So book your place today…

CEA Conferences:

“BG01 – PM5 Now Replaced” – Wednesday 18th June (Nottingham) & Wednesday 16th July (Manchester)

This conference introduces the most significant development in the steam industry for over a decade and it is therefore essential for operators, managers and owners of steam boiler plant to ensure that each is aware of the risks and  their respective responsibilities for the safe operation and management of steam and hotwater boiler plant.

“Boilerhouse Technical Risk Assessment” – Thursday 19th June (Nottingham) & Thursday 17th July (Manchester)

This conference will explain the major hazards in any boilerhouse and how to manage them through a risk assessment process. Gaining an underpinning knowledge in this is vital because it is a legal requirement of Management of Health and Safety at Work Regulations 1999. This requires the completion of ‘suitable and sufficient’ risk assessments including the risks to health and safety of the employees  to which are exposed whilst at work.

The links below provide more information on what the conferences have to offer:

WHILE YOU CAN CHOSE TO ATTEND EITHER DAY, A SUBSTANTIAL DISCOUNT IS AVAILABLE FOR DELEGATES BOOKING ON BOTH THE DAYS.

Tradeshow and Training Triumphs for Byworth

A busy recent period for Byworth Boilers offered opportunities to catch up with existing clients, connect with new visitors and showcase some innovative products at two trade exhibitions held at Birmingham’s NEC.

Byworth’s stand at the Foodex and Plant and Asset Management shows saw the MX500 boiler take pride of place, in a compact (but complete) ‘boiler house’ installation, including ancillaries, demonstrating its space and resource saving qualities – perfect for smaller steam users.

The shows also saw the first public unveiling of Unity, the high-end control and monitoring solution designed by Jason Atkinson – a former Byworth apprentice who was on-hand to show off the full range of functionality and reporting available to visitors.

Demonstrating Unity’s superiority over alternative simulator systems, the Byworth team took remote control of a working steam boiler in real time for the duration of the show – a feat made all the more impressive by the fact it was over 130 miles away.

In the Maintenance Seminar Theater, Dr Ian Roberts enjoyed a great reception from the packed house that attended his presentation on ‘Aspects of Risk Management in the Boiler House’, a ‘taster’ introduction to Byworth’s more in-depth one-day training course; ‘A Risk Based Approach to Steam System Design’.

The presentation attendance and reaction showed many are unsure, or even unaware, of the need for a full risk assessment to cover steam plant installations and key factors to consider – but if you missed it, don’t worry; catch it again at the Combustion Engineering Association’s (CEA) BG01 and risk conferences in June and July.

Byworth’s next outing will be at European Bioenergy Expo and Conference on the 8th and 9th October at Stoneleigh Park, we hope to see you there.
