Upcoming MAN ExpertTalks

Gas Turbine Packaging Solutions (morning session)

This MAN ExpertTalk will focus on an often neglected aspect of gas turbines: the package. The presentation will include a general overview over the most important features and tasks of a gas turbine package, with emphasis on environmental and safety aspects. The former include issues such as air, water and fuel management, and emissions. The latter includes, for example, fire safety.
