Sustainability and Digitalization 2023

Transformers Magazine's Industry Navigator conference


Transformers Magazine’s Industry Navigator conference brings together industry leaders to share their perspectives and collaborate on the best approaches for improving sustainability within the transformer industry. The event provides an opportunity for all parties to present their views and engage in discussions with other stakeholders.


We are happy to announce that the new conference is en route!


Conference title: Sustainability and Digitalization 2023

Dates: 6–8 June 2023

Place: Valamar Lacroma Dubrovnik Hotel, Dubrovnik, Croatia



Sustainability and Digitalization are the trends that probably have the most pronounced impact on the future of society, and thus our industry.

Transformers Magazine has been covering these topics in both regular and special editions, Transformers Academy features numerous lectures on the same topics, while the Industry Navigator conference and research are completely focused on them.

Supported by world-renown 16 expert companies as partners last year, the conference is a unique industry-wide event that brings together decision-makers and high-ranking experts from power utilities, transformer manufacturers, and suppliers of materials and components. All parties have a chance to present their views and discuss the matter with other stakeholders, with the objective to identify the best approaches for the development of the industry.

Study visits to state-of-the-art plants are an integral part of the conference.



Key topics that the conference covers include:

  • Decarbonization
  • Circular economy
  • Compacting (saving materials)
  • Protecting ecosystems
  • Enhancing operational human health and safety
  • Increasing efficiency
  • Digitalization

The research which followed the last conference showed that digitization is a somewhat specific trend, and therefore this year’s conference program features an individual approach to digitalization, which also reflects in the title of the conference: Sustainability and Digitalization.



The last Industry Navigator conference was a vibrant event with a rich technical and social program, and it was supported by sixteen industry-leading companies:

Champions of sustainability: ThyssenKrupp, Hitachi Energy, SGB-SMIT Group, Ergon,

Partners: EDF, Terna, Cargill, Micafluid, Siemens Energy, Končar

Sponsors: Nynas, Dynamic Ratings, Midel, PTTX, Maschinenfabrik Reinhausen, Coiltech



I just wanted to express how much I enjoyed your sustainability seminar today. I watched it the whole day. Every minute. It was very special – such a select group of impressive companies and individuals. You must be proud. I’m pleased MIDEL was able to contribute to the event. If I may say, well done!

Barry Menzies, M&I Materials


Please accept my heartful thanks for the hospitality during my stay in Zagreb and for the perfect organization of the event, which was so inspiring. I’d like to praise and thank the Transformers Magazine team that worked so hard for an awesome outcome of the event!

Leonardo Maschietto, PTTX
