50 years of HYDROFORUM Conferences - be a part of our jubilee!

50 years elapse since the first use of the HYDROFORUM brand and logo. The HYDROFORUM’73 conference was organised by the former Department of Liquid Dynamics of the IMP PAN and the Northern District Power Plants. The debate focused on the problems of design and operation of hydraulic turbomachines - particularly those related to hydropower.
The HYDROFORUM conferences of the first cycle were organised until 2005, when it was recognized that the original formula had been exhausted. The cycle was resumed already in 2011 – in a new for-mula, initially under the name associated with the RENEXPO Poland renewable energy fair. Today the HYDROFORUM Polish Hydropower Conferences are annual events of regional European impact. The main organizer is the Polish Hydropower Association. The co-organisers are: the Institute of Fluid-Flow Machinery of the Polish Academy of Sciences and the Polish Association of Small Hydropower Development (TRMEW).
This year the conference will debate on October 25th and 26th. The venue is Scandic Wroclaw Hotel located in Wroclaw. A study visit to Malczyce Hydropower Plant has been planned for October 27th. You are cordially invited to consult the informative material as available from this website. We’ll be looking forward to see you at our jubilee!
