Hong Kong stainless training for engineers

ASIA: Hong Kong: Nickel Institute has been identifying engineering hubs in Asia (large consulting engineering offices serving other offices in a firm's global or regional presence) over the past year and a half. The goal is to introduce stainless steels to engineers in order to develop the specification and use of nickel alloys. On 9th May we conducted a full day workshop in partnership with the Hong Kong Productivity Council (HKPC) on stainless steel. Thanks to NI’s relationship with HKPC, the response was overwhelming with demand for places significantly exceeding the capacity of the venue. Although we had to turn away participants, the event was very successful in developing relationships and identifying a number of high profile potential projects.

NI’s partnership with HKPC has attracted engineers to understand more about stainless steel in the Hong Kong context. During the event potential projects were identified. Local consultant Clive Whittington chaired the event while technical presentations were made by Graham Sussex and Richard Matheson. HKPC delivered a large number of relevant attendees at both senior and junior levels.

Further events are planned to meet the demand for such training and develop specification and use of stainless steels in this region.
