Trenchless technologies as a solution for renewing national water infrastructures
Friday 19 October 2018
09:30 - 12:30
Average leakage in pipe networks in Italy is estimated between 30% and 40%. Water networks and sewage pipes that date back more than 50 years account for over 25% of detected leakage cases. Renovation investments have become a priority, in accordance with Law 205/2017. The law strictly emphasizes how urgent it is to adopt a "National Plan for Interventions in the Water Sector", with a focus on aqueduct maintenance.
The use of trenchless technologies provides profitable solutions that benefit both the environment and the community.
Do Administrators of Water Services currently take advantage of these technologies in compliance with technical quality requirements (as specified in the AEEGSI 917/2017/R/idr resolution)? Do sector-specific organizations and ARERA, the Italian regulatory authority, understand the potential of this technology?
Our seminar will present concrete case studies provided by sector-specific companies with relevant background and experience.
