EVENT PREVIEW show in Asia to be supported by the International Society Trenchless Technology (ISTT). Trenchless Asia is once again supported by ISTT and is the only Trenchless event in Asia to gain IWK’s support. GSTT (German Society for Trenchless Technology) will also be hosting the largest German Pavilion ever to be exhibited at Trenchless Asia. The German Pavilion will sit alongside those secured by China and Singapore Westrade has also attracted some big-name Platinum Sponsors to the event, namely: Tangxing, USAE, Viva Complete, Vermeer, XCMG, Goodeng, JBP and Guilin Huali completes the line-up as their Gold Sponsor. This year’s event will present a blend of over 100 global and local companies showcasing machinery, products and methods which are available to aid the installation and refurbishment of underground utilities and pipelines without disruption to the surface. These include: Horizontal Directional Drilling (HDD), Auger boring, CCTV, Micro-tunnelling, Pipe Bursting, Underground Detection Equipment Inspection Systems, Digital Mapping, Ground Probing Radar, Cleaning Equipment, Pipe Jacking, CIPP, Pipe Lining Materials, Surveying Tools and Safety Equipment. Planning and construction of utilities is often difficult due to ageing infrastructure and service area congestion, therefore the need for trenchless technology has never been greater. This has only served to further fire up industry support surrounding the event. The programme will once again boast some of the sector’s leading innovators, pioneers and though leaders, such as: Utility personnel – water, sewerage, telecoms, electricity, oil and gas contractors, government officers, civil engineering consultants and research organizations. WHY MALAYSIA? The decision to move the event to Kuala Lumpur in 2016 proved a major success with exhibitors and visitors, attracted by the significant investment being made in the use of trenchless technology in Southeast Asia in recent years. This looks set to continue as pressure increases from governments and local authorities to use these modern engineering methods to minimise disruption during the installation and refurbishment of underground services, and to reduce impact on the environment. Huge strides have been made in the use of trenchless technology in Malaysia in recent years, and pressure from authorities has been placed on contractors to use the modern engineering methods to minimise disruption during the installation and refurbishment phase of projects, as well as reducing the impact on the environment. Across Malaysia, major projects are completed every day, proving that trenchless techniques provide economic solutions and reduced environmental impact. The social costs are reduced, benefitting business communities, as well as the travelling public. A budget of RM 5.6 billion (approximately US $1.7 billion), has been allocated by KeTTHA to improve the sewerage infrastructure of the Greater Kuala Lumpur/Klang Valley. This funding will enable the construction of regional sewage treatment plants, sewer networks and upgrading the existing sewerage facilities and is due to be completed by September 2020. There is also the Malaysia Plan that has over RM80 Billion of projects including tenders in public transport, oil & gas downstream infrastructure and water-related jobs. HISTORY OF THE EVENT Trenchless Asia has a reputation for attracting top quality audiences to this highly-focused exhibition and conference and since its inception, the Trenchless Asia brand has more than tripled in value. The event was first held in Singapore in 1995 and has subsequently been held in Hong Kong, Shanghai and Singapore. In May 2017, Westrade Group announced that the exhibition would move from a bi-annual to an annual event due to overwhelming market demand. In 2019, the event will be held for the first time in Jakarta, Indonesia and then in 2020, the event will return to KL, its home on a bi-annual basis. “We are thrilled have finalised the line-up for Trenchless Asia 2018. As the modernisation of utilities continues to develop at pace, we see this sector continuing to experience exceptionally high growth. Harnessing the commercial and environmental benefits of noninvasive technology, enables governments and private companies across Asia to develop a robust and scalable infrastructure. We feel proud to be playing our part in building a greener world,’’ reiterated Paul. WESTRADE GROUP Westrade Group Organised the very first No-Dig exhibition held in London in 1985. This led to the formation of the International Society for Trenchless Technology (ISTT) in 1986, with whom Westrade continues to maintain a close working relationship. Westrade has subsequently gained more than 33 years’ experience successfully promoting trenchless and No-Dig shows in countries all across the world. AW 34 JANUARY/FEBRUARY 2018 Asian Water
