Power Gen WEEK

Today on the Think Tank, we are sharing some information Power Generation Week - THE event for the international power industry. You may know Fisher Tank Company as a tank builder for the storage terminal industry, or as an expert in building and maintaining water storage tanks, but we also provide field erected welded steel tanks and vessels for the power generation industry. Most power plants have a few tanks on their property, and those tanks are key to that plant's operations. This week, we will be in Orlando, FL, at one of the largest events for the power industry - Power-Gen International, part of Power Generation Week.

Power-Gen brings together more than 20,000 power industry professionals from around the world to discuss innovations, ideas and solutions for the world's power needs and challenges. As a tank builder, we're interested in talking with experts on both sides of the power generation industry - power companies, investors, owners and developers who are seeking storage tank solutions for fuel, oil, water and slurry mix storage, as well as absorbers, silos and other vessels for emissions control systems. We're also there to talk with and learn from major constructors and engineering firms who are solving today's power plant construction and retrofitting challenges. For tank constactors like us, and for folks who handle any of the innumerable other aspects of power plant construction, maintenance and upgrades, Power-Gen is place to learn about the industry and talk with the experts who are shaping it.

Power-Gen includes networking events, technical tours, conference sessions and training opportunities and more than 1400 exhibitors.
