Seminar - John Munro - Pipeline Rehabilitation: A Fast Growing Branch of Civil Engineering
Wednesday, August 31, 2005, 1.10 - 1.50 pm
Civil Engineering Lecture Theatre 3
Beneath every major city in the world are pipelines that are reaching the end of their useful life, leaking water, gas and sewerage and causing problems for city Authorities. But digging and installing new pipelines to replace them would be prohibitively expensive and unacceptably disruptive.
Thus a specialist industry has developed to renew these pipelines without the need for excavation – although it remains a well kept civil engineering secret.
This lecture by a representative of Interflow Pty Limited, Australia’s leading pipeline rehabilitation contractor, will detail projects involving world leading Australian technology that remotely installs structural liners in deteriorated sewers and gravity pipelines with diameters from 100mm to 1,800mm. These technologies have been proven in Australia and have application around the world.
