Workshop Trenchless Technology (Johannesburg, South Africa)

Oct 19, 2009 - Oct 20, 2009
Target groups: Contractors, clients and consultants from Water, Wasterwater, Oil, Gas, Power, Sewage, Chemical and Telecommunications Industries.
Category: Workshop
Pipe rehabilitation/improvement techniques can save communities millions of dollars. Historically, underground utility piping had to be installed by open cut excavation, or jack-and-bore operations. These techniques are disruptive to the environment, vehicular and pedestrian traffic. Construction zones or detour routes affect commerce and are costly from a fiscal, social and environmental perspective. While there is no zero-impact pipe installation method, more and more techniques are being developed to minimize disruption at affordable costs.

Cutting Edge Highlights:
  • Installation of new pipes, e.g. horizontal directional drilling, micro-tunnelling, pipe ramming;
  • Rehabilitation of existing pipes, e.g. pipe bursting, CIPP and other lining techniques, patch repairs, grouting and the rehabilitation of man-entry and pressure pipes.
  • An overview of the various techniques available;
  • Discuss the advantages and disadvantages of each technique, highlighting where the techniques are suitable and where they are not;
  • Discuss the risks associated with each technique;
  • Outline the investigation works that should be carried out before the commencement of construction works;
  • Discuss the factors that should be considered in the design of projects involving trenchless technology;
  • Review the issues that should be considered when selecting which trenchless technology technique to use and which contractor to engage;
  • Discuss the items that should be considered when supervising the construction of trenchless technology works.
