10:30 AM – 12:00 PM — Young Professionals in Power Session: Bridging the Gap – Outstanding Engineering in the Field

The Mill Creek Air Quality Control System Project retrofit at the 1,600 MW LG&E/KU Mill Creek coal-fired power plant is one of the largest EPC projects in the USA. The project includes new flue-gas desulfurization units for all four units, new pulse jet fabric filters (PJFF) and ID fans for all four units, and new chimneys for three of the units. The use of field engineers has been instrumental in the success of the project. This paper and presentation will describe how the use of field engineering bridges the gap between conceptual design and field installation and establishes a “One Team” project environment.

1:30 PM – 3:30 PM — Young Professionals in Power Session: Millennials—Filling the GAP in the U.S. Workforce

Are you prepared for the next 24 months when 50% of your workforce will retire and Millennials will fill that GAP in the U.S. workforce? Millennials, who typically stay at a company less than 18 months, want to work for brands they know and trust. They want to work in a culture that caters to them (flexible hours, new technology, quick career path to management), and be part of a company that makes a difference for people and the environment. Build a Millennial-oriented brand that attracts talented Millennials.
