HRSG User’s Group

Improving steam-plant reliability, durability and profitability will host their annual user group forum in conjunction with the ELECTRIC POWER Conference.  

The HRSG User’s Group is the premier forum for the entire combined-cycle/cogeneration industry. With over two decades of experience, our annual meeting covers the entire range of challenges encountered with today's power plants, specializing in operations & maintenance, retrofits, HRSG inspections, and new construction.

For the best training on combined-cycle O & M, join the HRSG User's Group! Don’t confuse our conference with any other events in our industry. Ours is the biggest, the best, and the original! So, join us and the hundreds of repeat attendees who make this the one HRSG conference worth attending. 

First-time attendees to the HRSG User’s Group Conference receive a complimentary copy of the HRSG Users Handbook.
