Delivered by leading hydrogen industry practitioners and developed in collaboration with the Australian Institute of Energy, the program covers integral topics required by engineers to commence practising in the hydrogen industry. The objective of the program is to provide detailed information on the technical and practical aspects of hydrogen plan design, operation and product development.
Included are panel discussions and three site visits with time for networking with subject matter experts and other attendees at each session.
The sessions will cover:
- How systems work with reference to gas and power flows and unit operations (process flow diagrams), work packages, etc.
- Key design elements and features of each system including specific relevant plant safety considerations.
- Detail of main plant items and components and their functional description.
- Applicable technical specifications with reference to performance guarantees and relevant codes and standards.
- Technical operation and maintenance of commercial scale operating plants (as opposed to conceptual or detailed engineering designs).
- Key engineering design, technical and operational challenges and remedies.
- The role and applied skill sets of engineers in hydrogen project or product design, manufacturing and execution.
- Priority areas to bolster the skills and competencies of Australian hydrogen engineers.
Session content and depth of detail will match the standard understanding of a professional engineer. For example, a high level of understanding of the nature and operation of common unit operations including compressors, pumps, gas storage, power transformers, wiring, etc.
