At the ISTT’s 2012 conference in Sao Paulo, a discussion of trenchless issues took place, with speakers from key regions across the globe giving Affiliated Society leaders direction and guidance. At the ISTT’s 2013 conference, International No-Dig Down Under, the session took place for the second year and will act as a catalyst for work undertaken by the ASTT in promoting Trenchless Technology. Tue, 27 August 2013 A presentation by specialist Trenchless Technology company and Event Partner Kembla Watertech will form part of the conference program at the 31st ISTT No-Dig Down Under Conference and Exhibition, taking place in Sydney, Australia from 1-4 September. Insituform Pacific is currently into its fifth year of work on a contract originally awarded by Hunter Water in early 2009. Kembla Watertech celebrates a significant milestone this year – its 20th anniversary operating as a specialist Trenchless Technology company. Fri, 26 July 2013 Australasia's ever-expanding trenchless industry enjoyed an exciting year in 2012, with Trenchless Technology increasingly adopted for innovative installation and rehabilitation projects across the region. Mon, 24 June 2013 A number of wastewater and stormwater trenchless projects are in progress in the Wellington region of New Zealand. Interplastic Corporation will be showcasing its line of ECO Resins for cured-in-place pipe applications at the upcoming International No-Dig Down Under 2013 in Sydney. When Insituform Pacific was awarded three separate contracts for reticulation and trunk sewer main pipe rehabilitation by Queensland Urban Utilities in December 2012, there was an important caveat. Queensland Urban Utilities was dramatically ramping up its investment in pipe rehabilitation and required these contracts to be completed by the end of June 2013. To provide a solution to the rehabilitation of very old, deep and large oviform stormwater and sewer pipes across Sydney, Kembla Watertech looked to the international experts. Over the past year, Interflow has completed CIPP projects worth over $A10 million lining ovoid sewers in New South Wales, Victoria, South Australia and Western Australia. Nominations for outstanding trenchless industry people, projects and new technologies for the 2013 ASTT awards will close 31 July 2013 – don’t miss this opportunity to nominate the leaders in our industry. Fri, 8 February 2013 Queensland Urban Utilities has awarded three cured-in-place pipe contracts with a combined value of $AU8.52 million to Aegion Corporation’s subsidiary Insituform Australia. In 2009, Sydney Water contracted Kembla Watertech to rehabilitate a 67 m length of 990 x 660 mm oviform sewer main in Victoria Street. Crews worked in adverse weather conditions, great sewer depths, and close proximity to medium density residential areas, hostels, hotels and restaurants to complete what was considered to be one of the highest risk installations conducted worldwide, due to the depths and thickness of the liner. Insituform Pacific has been steadily working on a growing number of trenchless pipeline rehabilitation projects in Queensland and northern New South Wales. SEKISUI Pipe Rehabilitation Europe is expanding its range of applications for its cured-in-place pipe lining technique to include the rehabilitation of cooling water pipes in power plants. In the third installment of Trenchless Australasia’s ongoing state of the industry series, we take a look at major developments in Western Australia, as reported by ASTT Chairman Trevor Gosatti. Fri, 20 July 2012 In Christchurch, New Zealand, the Christchurch City Council will carry out repairs to the wastewater network in Madras Street, using cured-in-place pipe. Mon, 18 June 2012 The Stage 2 upgrade to Water Corporation’s Fremantle Main Sewer, in Western Australia, has recently been completed by Interflow using cured-in-place pipe. Fri, 30 March 2012 Capacity Infrastructure Services has been using cured-in-place-pipe to line a residential sewer main in Wainuiomata located in Lower Hutt, greater Wellington, New Zealand. When Insituform was commissioned to urgently fix a leaking sewer pipe, the company had no idea what it was up against and rushed to the scene to investigate the problem. 2011 has been a record year for stormwater pipe rehabilitation for Insituform’s Sydney operation. A significant number of projects have been completed, with a number of them being in very high profile areas of Sydney. Cured-in-place pipe (CIPP) appears with hindsight as one of the most significant breakthroughs of the last century. Some 50,000 km of CIPP has been installed worldwide since 1971. For 20 years the technology was protected by substantial patents and licensing policies. The tight grip relaxed in the 1990s and vigorous competition ensued as new processes and materials were introduced.
