A seminar on New developments in the restoration of conduits using trenchless technologies took place during the Autumn at the premises of Viva Servizi SpA (AN), Integrated Water Distribution Service Provider of an area covering 43 Municipalities of the provinces of Ancona and Macerata.

The event, attended by over 70 technicians, including engineers and freelance professionals, was sponsored by Viva Servizi SpA and the Order of Engineers of the province of Ancona abd worth 4 Training Credits for the participants.
The day focused on the regulatory aspects connected with the new laying technologies and the restoration of pipelines without trench excavations. It also included an overview of the trenchless projects completed by utilities such as iReti SpA since 1989, from Narrow Trenching to CIPP (Cured In Place Pipe), going through Relining, and finally HDD (Horizontal Directional Drilling).
FITT took an active part in the seminar, with a lecture on polymer alloys, and HDD works already completed in Italy using FITT Bluforce RJ, the PVC-A pipe with integrated tensile resistant. The technical and innovative content of our contribution was very well received by the public, who was not shy in coming forward with questions and request for details both during and after the presentation given by FITT’s technicians.
