Retrofit Revolution – Driving Technology for the Energy Transition

On June 13th to 15th 2023, Thomassen Energy held its annual Asset Managers Conference. This year the event took place in Rotterdam. This location was selected as Rotterdam will become one of the largest production and distribution hubs for carbon free energy in the World by the end of the decade.

The conference was the opportunity to meet with customers, partners and suppliers to share experience, present the latest technology/ service developments and to connect. This year theme was ‘Retrofit Revolution’.

The first day participants had the opportunity to attend the training ‘Introduction to Gas Turbine Engineering’. ‘Paving the way towards decarbonization’ was the topic of the second day. The final slot of the morning program was a lively panel session with partners from FME, RWE, Air Liquide, GETEC and DOW. In the afternoon participants had the fortunate opportunity to visit Uniper where later this year Thomassen will provide a retrofit enabling Uniper’s 9E machine to operate with up to 30% hydrogen. This day ended up with a dinner on a cruise boat on the river Maas, admiring Rotterdam skyline under a warm sun. On the last day, based on the theme‘Revitalizing and Enhancing Flexibility of Existing Gas Turbine Fleet’, presentations from customers and technical experts, as well as round table sessions took place.

We received immensely positive feedback as Thomassen continues to lead the way with the latest astonishing Hydrogen combustion developments.
