Installation and Rehabilitation

In 2011 the conference will feature two Super Panels of trenchless experts to answer your questions.

The Installation Super Panel will be made up of trenchless experts in areas including tunnelling, HDD, asset management. The Rehabilitation Super Panel will feature experts in relining techniques, condition assessment and more.
