Early Bird Registration Open for HHP Summit 2017
Conference organizers of the 2017 High Horsepower (HHP) Summit, North America’s largest event focused on the economic and environmental benefits of natural gas for high horsepower applications, has opened early bird registration for the sixth-annual event. The event showcases the innovative and growing use of natural gas across a wide variety of energy-intensive downstream applications, including rail, marine, mining, E&P, and power generation.
“In the last 12 months, transformative growth has swept the North American natural gas market for high-fuel-use applications,” noted Erik Neandross, CEO of Gladstein, Neandross & Associates, the U.S. clean transportation and energy consulting firm that produces the conference. “Nowhere is this more evident than in Jacksonville, Florida, where LNG and CNG projects are hitting the water, tracks, and gravel month-after-month.”
HHP Summit 2017 attendees will have the opportunity to participate in off-site technical tours to see this incredible market activity firsthand. In the months leading up to HHP Summit, Jacksonville will become home to more LNG-fueled ocean-going vessels, locomotives and over-the-road trucks than any place in the world, as well as the launching point for the export of natural gas to remote power generation and industrial markets in the Caribbean and beyond.
To support these operations, three new LNG production plants are under construction, including a state-of-the-art facility from six-time HHP Summit presenting sponsor, Pivotal LNG.
The Summit will provide insight into real-world natural gas project deployments during comprehensive educational sessions and workshops. Confirmed executive level speakers include:
- Thomas Crowley, CEO & Chairman, Crowley Marine
- Peter Keller, Executive Vice President, TOTE
- Marcel LaRoche, Director, LNG Engineering, BC Ferries
- Svein Steimler, President & CEO, NYK Group Europe
- Tom Strang, SVP, Maritime Affairs, Carnival
- Chad Verret, Executive Vice President, Harvey Gulf
Additional speakers, a detailed agenda, and co-located events will be announced over the next several weeks.
Early bird registration offers attendees a $400 savings through August 4. For more information, visit www.hhpsummit.com.
