The results of a survey on preventive maintenance practices and technician training will be presented during the show. Survey topics included dielectric and acoustic emissions testing practices, management information system and data use, warranty work and claims processing, and technician training and apprentice programs. The survey results also will be part of EUFMC roundtables where fleet managers share best practices and discuss common challenges.
Panelists across these sessions and roundtables will be drawn from utility companies, fleet-management firms, truck manufacturers, technology firms and more.
In addition, 270 representatives from more than 100 manufacturers and service providers will be on hand with more than 60 displays. As always, EUFMC will feature an outdoor “drive-through” utility equipment demonstration, where exhibitors showcase new and updated equipment and services.
The show’s keynote speaker will be Jim Stanley, the senior vice president of power delivery for Duke Energy, Charlotte, N.C. In this role, he oversees power transmission and distribution in a five-state area. Duke provides power to 4 million customers across the Carolinas and Midwest and natural gas to 500,000 customers in Ohio and Kentucky.
