Description

Middle East is considered to be a relative late comer to the area of trenchless technology. Nevertheless trenchless is definitely becoming a popular method among contractors and municipalities across Middle East. The fast, high-grade development of mainly urban, areas of the region requires new, extended or rehabilitated underground infrastructure for water and sewerage, electricity or gas. Minimizing the disruption on the surface does significantly contribute to time-efficient, cost reducing and less risky management of utility infrastructure.

Find out how and why you, too can turn “open cut” into “no dig” and fully benefit from the latest technical innovations and professional experience from both local and international experts in trenchless.
