Driving Efficiencies & Costs Savings in Trenchless New Pipeline Installations

SEPTEMBER 22nd,  2020 |  2:00 PM - 3:00 PM EST



Trenchless technologies, such as Horizontal Directional Drilling (HDD) and Micro-tunnelling, have provided cost-saving opportunities and solutions for new pipeline construction. The minimal surface disturbances offer significant financial, environmental, and social advantages. Yet more cost savings can be achieved in trenchless projects! Innovative tools and procedures, such as telematics, slurry management technologies, project management software, and utility mapping solutions can drive efficiencies and reduce out of pocket expenses on every phase of the trenchless projects.   

The first presentation will be the " Driving job site efficiencies through better data " by Cory Mass from Vermeer. The second presentation will be the " Effective drilling fluid and slurry management options " by Brandon Wagner from Vermeer, and the third presentation will be the “Effectively Mapping Utility Locates” by Brock Kingston from Cansel. 

Who should attend?

Anyone involved or interested in the construction of underground infrastructure projects, including the municipal engineers, technicians, consultants, contractors, suppliers should attend this webinar. Attendees will learn from leading industry experts on state-of-the art technologies, processes and practices to improve efficiencies and reduce the costs of trenchless construction projects. .
