TSITT reports growth of trenchless in Turkey
The Turkish Society for Infrastructure and Trenchless Technology (TSITT) has reported continued growth in its local industry in 2017.
Since hosting the ISTT’s 33rd International No-Dig Conference and Exhibition in 2015, TSITT has witnessed a rise in the number of trenchless projects in Turkey, including 10 CCTV inspection and cleaning projects in 2017.
More than 5,000 km of pipeline will be inspected and cleaned as part of the projects during 2017-2019.
The remaining project for this year, which is accepting tenders until 21 December 2017, includes the CCTV inspection of 550 km and cleaning of 550 km for Asia Side Phase 2.
Additional trenchless projects have been announced for 2018-2020, including more than 200 km of cured-in-place pipe and close-fit sliplining operations, and more than 100 km of microtunnelling, pipe jacking and horizontal directional drilling operations.
The Turkish government has also implemented water loss control regulations which require municipalities and utilities to announce large tenders.
Several local and international companies have already started water loss control projects in the country and it is anticipated that US$2 billion will be invested by municipalities and utilities up until 2023.
