TRENCHLESS ASIA 2016 is the 9th event in this series and for the first time will be held in Kuala Lumpur
The spotlight will be on Kuala Lumpur as, for the first time, it hosts 2016’s most prestigious and exciting forum for trenchless technologists in Asia. Significant advances have been made in the use of trenchless technology in Malaysia in recent years.
Pressure from authorities has been placed on contractors to use these modern engineering methods to minimise disruption during the installation and refurbishment of underground services. This is a developing global industry. Products and techniques are reviewed and improved on a regular basis and new innovations are proven to enhance performance.
Across Malaysia, major projects are completed every day, proving that trenchless techniques provide economic solutions and reduced environmental impact. The social costs are reduced, benefitting business communities, as well as the travelling public. A budget of RM 5.6 billion (approximately USD 1.7 billion) is in place to improve the sewerage infrastructure of the Greater Kuala Lumpur/ Klang Valley. This funding will enable the construction of regional sewage treatment plants, sewer networks and upgrading the existing sewerage facilities.
The major target areas for attendees will include Malaysia, Philippines, Singapore, Australasia, China, Hong Kong, Japan, Korea, India, Thailand, as well as other nearby countries in the region.
TRENCHLESS ASIA has a reputation for attracting top quality audiences to this highly focused Exhibition and Conference. The event was first held in Singapore in 1995 and has subsequently been held in Hong Kong, Shanghai and Singapore. The event expects to attract the cream of exhibitors, local and international contractors with the best of technologies adapted for local conditions, along with a substantial body of experienced municipal engineers, their consultants and contractors.
We look forward to meeting all industry colleagues in Kuala Lumpur where we will present a major showcase and forum for exchange of information and experience in the application of trenchless technologies for the public benefit.
