Visit to Howden

9 December 2017 @ 10:30 am - 12:00 pm

Howden designs, engineers and supplies air and gas handling equipment, including industrial fans, process gas compressors and rotary heat exchangers. Established over 160 years ago as an engineering firm, Howden has grown to become a worldwide organisation with over 5500 employees and in operates in 23 countries with sales totalling $1.4bn. Their equipment may be found in virtually every industry but particularly in those such as in power generation, petrochemicals, mining, steelmaking and cement manufacture where the most arduous air and gas handling duties are to be found.
Combining knowledge with extensive applications experience gained by their engineers on sites throughout the world allows Howden to support their customers, not just from initial project inception but throughout the entire operating life of the plant. This is a rare opportunity to visit the site in Renfrew. This guided visit will be given by Dr Billy Milligan
and will last for approximately 1.5 hours.

Members who wish to attend should register with Laura Clow as soon as possible, as places are limited.
