The HYDRO-conferences are known for their extensive technical program, and HYDRO 2010 was no exception. Four parallel sessions were in action from early morning until the afternoon the three days the conference lasted. Norway was represented with three session chairs and numerous presentations. According to some delegates, however, the number of Norwegian speakers could have been higher.
Norway was well represented at the exhibition. Rainpower and Powel had large stands while Hydroenergi, Sedicon, Teksal, Kolo Veidekke, INTPOW and Dyrhoff had smaller but well visited booths.
