The Steam System Optimization Expert training on site was held by international trainers of the United Nations Industrial Development Organization (UNIDO) for three days at Tabriz Oil Refinery.

In this 3-day training, 20 participants including energy managers and experts from different industries learned optimization solutions for energy consumption in steam systems. This training followed the 2-day user training of Steam System Optimization in which 20 energy experts were selected out of 35 participants.

The national coordinator of Industrial Energy Efficiency (IEE) project in five key industrial sectors in UNIDO of Iran, Nasim Shekari remarked that the goal of this training is to learn the measuring methods of steam systems, recognition of losses and energy saving opportunities as well as software analyzing of energy saving projects in steam systems.

“Those who pass this training, will practice their lessons in three to four specified pilots”, Shekari added.

The international trainer of UNIDO, Oliver Fischer said that the steam system can be seen in most of process industries which consumes a high amount of energy and such trainings can help the recognition of losses and less energy consumption owing to efficient savings.

The next international trainer of UNIDO, Alexander Antomoshkin stressed on the chief contribution of steam system in energy consumption of industrial plants and said by implementation of such projects, at least 20 percent energy saving in steam systems will be achieved.

The technical expert of UNIDO in IEE project, Mahdi Shakouri noted that training and implementation of energy saving solutions have major impacts when a systematic approach is present.

“There are four major areas of a steam system: Generation, Distribution, End-Use and Recovery. In addition, according to our experience at UNIDO, such trainings will be much effective when trainees could practice their lessons in a real plant”, Shakouri mentioned.
