ME RoTIC highlights ground-breaking technologies for rotating machinery equipment

MERotic SpeakerThe Middle East Rotating Machinery Technology and Innovation Conference & Showcase (ME RoTIC), which runs from 10-12 October at Sofitel, The Palm Resort and Spa, Dubai highlighted some of the best practices and technologies from the Middle East and the globe to help oil and gas producers, power generators and aviation industry professionals to enhance their productivity in today’s challenges environment including maintenance and reliability areas of machinery

Advancements in technology are crucial to improving efficiency and maintenance of rotating machinery.

ME RoTIC is hosted by ALDRICH in collaboration with committee members from Saudi Aramco, Saudi Electricity Company, SABIC, Bahrain Petroleum Company (BAPCO), GASCO, Ethydco which explores latest technologies related to Rotating Machinery for various Industries provides a strategic platform for experts to engage in conversations with major stakeholders of the industry.

“We are currently in a period of unprecedented technological disruption, and as global industries transform and shape to these advances, the oil and gas industry must keep pace. Additionally, keeping rotating equipment in condition is extremely important. It will not only help address the present needs but also equip the machinery to face harsh conditions such as more extreme temperatures, heavier loads and greater exposure to damaging contaminants in the future,” said Samuel of ALDRICH.

The conference was inaugurated by Dr Abdulrahman Al-Ibrahim, ex-governor, SWCC and featured speakers such as Mamdouh Al Aidarous, engineering consultant, Saudi Aramco; Dr Abdurrahman Khalidi, chief technology officer, GE; Bernard Quoix, president - European Turbine Network, head of rotating machinery department, Total E & P; Paul van Stokkom, staff engineer - rotating equipment, asset technology center, SABIC, among many others.

The conference featured discussion on varied topics including ‘Benefits of Implementing an Independent Reliability Function in an Organization’, ‘Energy saving and Efficiency Gains via Improving the Air Quality of Gas Turbines’, ‘Advanced Oil Debris Monitoring for Aeroderivative Gas Turbines & Industrial Gearboxes’, ‘Variable Frequency Drive Pumps’ Reliable Operation Window & Energy Saving Analysis’, ‘Dry Gas Seals Technology, Repair and Care, Turbomachinery Safeguarding’, ‘Basic Care of Dry Gas Seals and New Trends in Rotating Machinery Designs’, among many others.

A report by ExxonMobil’s annual Outlook for Energy: Journey to 2040 report projects that energy demand will grow by about 25 per cent over the next 23 years. And, in 2040, it projects that oil and gas will still account for 57 per cent of the total energy mix.
