Registrations available for final ASTT Technical Forum

Registrations are still available for the final ASTT Technical Forum for 2017, taking place on 30 November at the Sydney Water’s headquarters in Paramatta, New South Wales (NSW).

This year’s final forum will be hosted by NSW Australasian Society for Trenchless Technology (ASTT) Councillor Nabil Issa, and will feature presentations from Sydney Water Senior Engineer Jerry Sunarho, Qenos Market Segment Manager Jeroen Wassenaar and kwik-ZIP NSW Business Development Manager Paul Keegan.

Mr Sunarho is part of the Urban Design and Engineering team at Sydney Water, specialising in structure rehabilitation, corrosion protection, condition assessment and product assessment.

His presentation will focus on the field testing of geopolymers against corrosive sewer environment, a study with aims to evaluate the performance of different polymers, mortars and cements in an aggressive sewer environment.

Mr Wassenaar is responsible for the conception and delivery of the segment strategies for injection and pipe applications, including PE100 pressure pipe resins, as well as driving the evolution and promotion of the product slate at Qenos.

His presentation will feature a comprehensive overview of the Yeppoon Causeway Lake horizontal directional drilling (HDD) project, which utilised Qenos’ PE100 HSCR pipe to augment the capacity of the Livingstone Shire council’s water distribution network.

The final speaker for the evening, Paul Keegan, has worked within the Australian water industry for almost two decades, working with well-known companies like Tyco Water, Eimco Water Technologies, Continental Water and Chemstore.

His presentation will focus on spacers for the trenchless industry, including an overview of product approvals, technical features, spacer selection and sizing, as well as discussing projects that have used kwik-ZIP spacers for grade correction and bundled pipe installations.

Following these presentations, a networking session will take place at the nearby Commercial Hotel, where drinks and canapes will be served.

Registration for the event is just AU$45 for ASTT members and AU$65 for non-members.
