Looking back… looking forward

In view of Crown Publications celebrating 25 years in the industry in November 2011, this article, written by Electricity+Control technical director, includes the thoughts of many – giving a broad outline of the significant changes which occurred during this time.


Take note

  • Over the past 25 years, we have seen the advent of the digital and ICT era, a massive loss of skills in our industry and energy moving onto centre stage.
  • Much of what is negatively impacting plant operations today was identified by young engineers in the late eighties and early nineties.
  • The industry has become corporatised.
  • Our engineering qualifications are world class!
