Nicolas Jouret

Nicolas Jouret is an energy consultant, managing technical projects in various fields of the energy scene, including power plant combustion tuning, retrofit to biomass, flue gas treatment and emissions optimization and more recently co-combustion of hydrogen with natural gas within gas turbines. He started his professional career within ENGIE Laborelec as a combustion junior Specialist. Then he gained experience within Plant Operations as a process engineer in a Coal & Biomass Plant, as Deputy Operation Manager during the commissioning and startup of a new Coal Plant and finally as Data Quality Manager within Energy Management &Trading Department.



The aim is to create insight in the diverse technical safety problems related to thermal process in order to allow the students to recognize the risks and to take the necessary measures to control them. The student is expected to understand and master the technical operation of the different thermal components and their associated safety features mentioned above in order to identify and implement the prescribed regulatory safety requirements (and additional protective devices if necessary) in a concrete industrial environment.


The syllabus gives an overview of different thermal installations, each with their specific safety hazards and protection measures. The following thermal equipment is discussed:

  • Boiler (water-steam side)
  • Boiler (firing side)

A brief description of the operation of each system is given but the course is particularly focused on the technical aspects of safety controls, safety fittings and protective devices, as well as the regulatory code requirements. The latter are illustrated within the national and European context. Special attention is drawn to the application of the pressure vessel directive and the associated European harmonized standards.

Target Audience

This training course is dedicated to O&M’s from industry using steam process and safety engineers.
