Benefit from five days packed with pre-conference workshops, technical tours, over 70 conference sessions, panel discussions, three exhibition days and multiple networking events. Like never before, you’ll have access to nearly every facet of the market – all under one roof.
POWER GENERATION WEEK Unveiled for 2013 TULSA, OK//December 18, 2012—POWER-GEN International, the world’s largest conference and exhibition for the power generation and public utilities sector, announced a record-breaking attendance of nearly 22,000 attendees and 1,400 exhibitors at last week’s event, held December 11-13 at the Orange County Convention Center in Orlando, FL.
Power professionals and executives from more than 75 countries gathered for three fast-paced days to hear the latest on technical, political and economic developments impacting the power generation market.“We are extremely pleased with the success of POWER-GEN International last week and the co-located events including Renewable Energy World North America Conference & Expo, NUCLEAR POWER International and the Financial Forum. The momentum seen by these four events far underscores the importance of such a platform to the industry and reaffirms dynamic growth in the power generation sector,” said Mr. Richard Baker, Senior Vice President of PennWell Corp.’s Power Group.
The event launched with a keynote panel addressing “The Challenge Ahead,” looking at the future of power generation, several new nuclear power projects underway and advances in the technology to reduce emissions. The keynote speakers included Gordon Gillette, president of Tampa Electric & Peoples Gas; Jon Wellinghoff, chairman of the Federal Energy Regulatory Commission; E. James Ferland, president and CEO of The Babcock & Wilcox Company; Paul Browning, president & CEO of Thermal Products; and VADM Dennis V. McGinn (USN, Retired), president of the American Council on Renewable Energy.
The 2012 exhibition showcased 1,400 exhibiting companies across every sector of the power generation industry, displaying the latest products, services and technologies in generation, renewable energy and nuclear power. Also announced last week in acknowledgement of the 25thanniversary of POWER-GEN in 2013, POWER-GEN International, NUCLEAR POWER International, Renewable Energy World North America Conference & Expo and POWER-GEN Financial Forum will converge in 2013 to formally present POWER GENERATION WEEK, providing exposure to every facet of the generation market – all under one roof.
Taking place November 12-14, 2013 at the Orange County Convention Center in Orlando, FL, POWER GENERATION WEEK will feature several new additions to the events, as well as total access registration opportunities for power professionals to benefit from all four events over the three days.

According to Wikipedia, Orlando is nicknamed “The City Beautiful” and its symbol is the fountain at Lake Eola. The city is best known for the Walt Disney World Resort (located approximately 21 miles (34 km) southwest of Downtown Orlando in Lake Buena Vista), and Universal Orlando Resort (which consists of two parks, Universal Studios Florida and Islands of Adventure, as well as other attractions, including City Walk). Orlando is also home to the SeaWorld theme park, Gatorland, and Wet ‘n Wild Water Park. With the exception of Walt Disney World, most major attractions are located along International Drive. With so much to do in Orlando, now is the time to plan your stay. You may want to bring the family along to this PennWell event and spend some extra time afterward soaking in the Florida sun.

Only Kentucky, North Carolina and Kansas have better records.
This year, The Runnin’ Rebels have a new head coach—Dave Rice—and he’s determined to take his team to March Madness for the third year runnin’. The Mountain West looks tough, so every game will count, and anyone in the stands at Thomas & Mack will get a great show.

You might be an engineer if … your wristwatch has more computing power than a 486DX2-50 processor, but you’re definitely an engineer if Hoover Dam is your design temple.
Hoover Dam is the destination for the POWER-GEN International 2011 tech tour.
The awesome power of Hoover Dam awaits those who admire this National Historic Landmark. Named one of the Top 10 Construction Achievements of the 20th Century, the past 75 years have seen the dam become one of the most celebrated monuments in America.
Did you know that:
- The dam and powerplant are operated and maintained by the US Bureau of Reclamation.
- There are 17 main turbines in powerplant.
- The original turbines were all replaced during an upgrade program between 1986 and 1993.
- The plant has a nameplate capacity of 2,074,000 kilowatts.
- The power generation part of the plant was completed in 1961.
- There are fifteen 178000 HP, one 100000 HP, and one 86000 HP Francis-type vertical hydraulic turbines.
- There are thirteen 130000 kW, two 127 kW, one 61500 kW, and one 68500 kW generators.
- All machines are operated at 60 cycles.
- There are also two 2400 kW station-service units driven by Pelton water wheels. These provide electrical energy for lights and for operating cranes, pumps, motors, compressors, and other electrical equipment within the dam and powerplant.
This year there are two tech tours available during POWER-GEN International: Sunday and Monday, December 11 and 12 for $60. Space is limited, register before November 18. (Sorry, security doesn’t allow “day of” registrations.)
