Experience Days | Successful Conference on Plant Safety and Digitization

On the 13th and 14th of September LESER hosted the Experience Days in the LESER-Kontor in Hamburg. With more than 300 participants from 55 nations, the conference was very international and well  attended. The lectures focused on current topics in overpressure protection. With the headlines “Plant Safety & Digitalization”, “From Market to Product” and “Safety Valve Technology” lectures were held in three parallel sessions so that everyone was able to find a match for his interests. Speakers from LESER’s customers Linde, BASF and upstream valve consultant from Brazil presented their experience as well as the experts at LESER. Safety valves were shown in operation during the whole conference in the new LESER Chatroom and on the LESER test lab.

The closing event was a panel discussion on the topic of digitalization held between representatives of Linde, BASF and LESER. The question what digitalization means for the overpressure protection of process plants was discussed. An outlook on the changing environment not only for safety valves but also for employees due to the digital transformation was given.

In addition to the conference, the participants visited  the LESER factory in Hohenwestedt. More than 150 visitors took the opportunity to get a deep insight into the modern production facility guided by the responsible department managers and therefor the developers of the factory itself. A sightseeing tour of Hamburg was on the agenda too  with 80 participants giving an impression of the flair and maritime charm of the “gateway to the world” as the city of Hamburg is also called. The opening dinner for the Experience Days was celebrated at the Museum of Hamburg History which is connected to the history of LESER by parts of the stone facade which were once part of the former building of LESER in the today no longer existing “Neustädter Fuhlentwiete” of Hamburg.

Shortly further video impressions and interviews with participants will follow on this place. Please have a look from time to time.
