Voovio will join reuters event: downstream 2022 & arc advisory forum 2022

We’re excited to share that the Voovio team will be joining the Downstream 2022 & 26th Annual ARC Industry Forum in June!

Downstream 2022

Voovio is proud to be a silver sponsor for this year’s Downstream event in Houston, TX. We are expecting over 1000 conference attendees and over 5000 exhibition attendees over the two-day event. Industry leaders will be speaking in several tracks, focused on the key topics around downstream optimization. Organized by Reuters, the full US petrochemical, refining, chemical and LNG industry will be under one roof to hear major producers share exclusive investment decisions, highlight key lessons learned and deep dive use-case studies on the latest trends and challenges across 4 business critical tracks: Reliability & Maintenance, Shutdown & Turnarounds, Engineering & Construction and The Future of Downstream Plenary.

Contributions from Voovio’s industry experts:

Voovio will be hosting a fire side chat session with one of our customers, BASF on Thursday 8th June, shortly after lunch, in the Reliability & Maintenance track. Our special guest, Dale Tidwell, Operational Improvement Coordinator for BASF Geismar’s Chemical Intermediates, will discuss how BASF is closing their ‘knowledge gap’ with Voovio’s Operational Excellence Platform.
Join the session to:

  • Discover how BASF has partnered with Voovio in delivering an operational excellence platform focused on the ‘people’ component in manufacturing with the primary aim of reducing errors due to insufficient operating practices and procedural follow-through.
  • Learn about the impact including increased competency, learning, and productivity with a more interactive, self-directed and systematic operator training model to capture and transfer organizational knowledge.
  • Hear how BASF is engaging front-line operations and maintenance personnel and deploying innovative digital tools as part of its operational excellence journey.

Who will present:

  • Larry ‘Dale’ Tidwell, Operational Improvement Coordinator for BASF Geismar’s Chemical Intermediates
  • Clint Jeffus, Director of Operations, Voovio Technologies

The person who led this implementation, Gabriel Young, Learning & Development Coordinator for Utilities, will cover the key reliability challenges he was looking to solve and the immediate results realized across Utilities thanks to Voovio.
