SASTT prepares for No-Dig South Africa

The Southern African Society for Trenchless Technology (SASTT) has already started preparing for the ISTT’s 36th Annual International No-Dig Conference and Exhibition, taking place in Cape Town in South Africa on 8-9 October 2018.

Speaking to’ SASTT Vice President Sam Efrat said he was looking forward to the world’s trenchless community descending on Cape Town for the event next year.


“Depending on country, you can have as many as 500 delegates – in fact, in the states last year they had something like 2,000 delegates, 160 exhibitors, maybe 3,000 feet through the door.

“The event will feature experts in water and sewer, fibreoptic installation using different trenchless technologies, like horizontal directional drilling (HDD), pipe bursting, cured-in-place piping, CCTV investigation and assessment.”

No-Dig South Africa’s program will explore a range of new infrastructure installations, as well as extensive renovation methods for ageing underground services that continue to be carried out across South Africa.

The exhibition will present a number of equipment and service displays for local and international visitors, including HDD equipment, pipe rammers, pipe bursters, pipe inspection tools, CCTV surveying equipment, pipes and lining material, cleaning equipment, consulting services and more.

The Call for Papers for the event is expected to close in January 2018 and prospective authors have been invited to submit proposals for consideration in the conference program.
