The day was full of presentations on industry updates and innovations including from our own Principal Engineer of mining and power, Jason Padgett, where he spoke on our yet to be released battery electric vehicle, Driftex and the benefits it will provide to the industry. Conference attendees were able to have a first look at the vehicle fresh off some field tests and speak to some of the engineers involved in it’s development and production.
It is great to finally be back to face to face conferences, where peers and experts within the industry can gather and share ideas after such a long hiatus. MEMMES 2022 and other similar events that promote research development such as this, are vitally important to continued industry growth and collaboration.
A big thankyou to both MEMMES and Crowne Plaza, Hunter Valley for hosting a great day. We look forward to more event’s that we can meet with and exchange ideas with other members of the mechanical and electrical engineering community.
Ampcontrol’s Group Engineering Manager Dr Ian Webster will be presenting his most recent paper at the conference titled: Engineering In An Emergency.ResTech’s Principal Engineer, Dr Peter Stepien will also be at the conference presenting his paper titled: Control of Touch Potentials During Switching.
