CALGARY, Alberta, Canada, September 12-13th, 2013 – TJH2b Analytical Services announces it will present TechCon Canada 2013 Conference and Expo at The Westin Hotel in Calgary on September 12-13th, 2013. The goal is to give local utility companies, engineering firms in the area and from around the world, the opportunity to learn from top experts in the field, solutions to critical issues surrounding power grid maintenance and management strategies.

There is a critical need for new solutions designed to manage risk and maintain a safe and reliable power grid. The 2nd Annual TechCon Canada 2013 consists of a two day conference to address these challenges utilizing 12 expert presenters focusing on topics that cover critical aspects of substation maintenance. In addition, delegates will have direct access to presenters, exhibitors, industry networking opportunities and SAIT Polytechnic (Southern Alberta Institute of Technology) tour. TJH2b Analytical Services once again welcomes Professor Dennis Allen as Chairman for the conference.

Brian Adams, newly appointed Program Administrator of  TechCon® and Marketing Director of TJH2b Analytical Services, says, “We recognize that there is an enormous demand for this type of program. Explosive growth, significant shortages of skilled labor, an aging workforce, the need for maintaining an aging power grid infrastructure and access to the best solutions present a significant challenge to the power industry.” Each topic has been carefully selected for the region by the International TechCon® Papers Review Committee. Utilities, electrical engineers, asset managers, service providers, and utility maintenance specialists will benefit from “in the trench”, hands-on learning from top experts.

 “We feel that by providing the expertise, and a collaborative educational environment we can achieve our goals for attendees,” said Adams. “We are excited to be in Calgary because of the progressive nature of the city and rapid expansion in the area.”
