2016 Fossil Outage Forum

The 2016 Fossil Outage Forum Workshop on June 27 � 29 at the Sheraton Memphis Downtown in Memphis, Tennessee.

The workshop will provide a forum for outage management peers to exchange experiences, best practices, and ideas related to current and emerging issues associated with outage planning and execution.

  • A roundtable discussion of success stories and lessons learned
