About this Virtual Instructor Led Training (VILT) 

This 2-half-day Virtual Instructor Led Training (VILT) course will discuss the chemical aspects of the water-steam cycle in a power plant. The VILT course will examine the different types of chemicals used in boilers, potential issues in a water-steam cycle as well as aspects of monitoring and specifications regarding target values and alarm levels. Participants will also be equipped on what to do or key action steps to take in the event of chemistry-related incidents.

This course is delivered in partnership with ENGIE Laborelec.

The VILT course will cover the following:

  • Detailed aspects of chemistry in a water steam cycle, including types of chemicals used in boilers depending on the treatment and type of boiler
  • Potential issues in a water-steam cycle such as corrosion and deposition
  • Monitoring & analytical programmes and knowledge of specifications for the water steam cycle (normal values targets – alarm levels)
  • Chemistry aspects during transition periods: start-up, shutdown and preservation
  • Actions to be taken in the event of an alarm
  • Examples of incidents or deviations compared to normal chemistry

The VILT course is intended for:

  • Power plant chemists
  • Plant operation or maintenance engineers
  • Consultants and technical project managers
  • Boiler engineers

The VILT course will be delivered online in 2 half-day sessions comprising 4 hours per day, with 2 x 10 minutes break per day, including time for lectures, discussion, quizzes and short classroom exercises.

Course Duration: 2 half-day sessions, 4 hours per session (8 hours in total).

Your first expert course leader is a chemistry consultant who is focused on water treatment in power plants. In his current role, he manages technical research programs in the area of water & steam cycle chemistry. He is also experienced in areas such as demineralized make-up water and closed component cooling chemistry. His tasks mainly relate to carrying out chemistry consultation work onsite and emergency assistance with chemistry incidents. He is skilled in plant chemistry management and training.

Before joining ENGIE Lab Laborelec, he worked for 24 years as chemistry manager for the ENGIE conventional power plant fleet in Flanders, Belgium. In addition to the chemistry of water treatment, he has built up knowledge and experience in combustion chemistry and the chemistry of lubricants, making him an all-round power plant chemist, with water/steam cycle chemistry as his principal expertise and current work domain. He was contracted for two years by ENGIE Electrabel to lead chemistry related projects and is still involved in chemistry projects in ENGIE nuclear power plants.

Your second expert course leader is a chemistry consultant in the energy sector. He works with operators of power plants and industrial facilities. He is active in water-steam cycle chemistry, where he provides support to increase chemistry maturity through audits, trainings or development of key performance indicators.

His role also includes operational assistance in the field of chemical cleaning and troubleshooting. More recently, he expanded his field of competence towards electrical storage. In this regard, he specializes in electrochemistry and is in charge of different tests on batteries and their components within the ENGIE Batteries Lab.
