Kane Scott, our South Australian Councillor for the past six years, has now been replaced by Tim Bartholomaeus, who is also from SA Water. On behalf of the ASTT I would like to thank Kane for the valuable work he did in his role of South Australian Councillor.

Training and Education

The ASTT has now completed the third very successful series of trenchless masterclass training seminars. These seminars were conducted in capital cities across Australia and New Zealand. The training was delivered by Blair Telfer who is a Professional Engineer and Director of ProjectMax.

All the feedback I have received about the seminars has been extremely positive and I am confident that the trenchless message has been successfully delivered to a new audience.

International No-Dig Sydney 2013

I am now able to confirm that the ASTT and the ISTT have reached agreement for the event contract for the 31st International No-Dig, being staged in Sydney in 2013. This contract will be signed in early July at the Trenchless Asia event in Singapore.

In order to take advantage of the large exhibitor and delegate attendances expected at the combined Singapore International Water Week and Trenchless Asia Event, the ASTT will be heavily promoting our International No-Dig in Sydney at this event.
