Insights from TunnelTech 2017
RVT was delighted to attend this year's TunnelTech event. It is the only one of its kind, focusing specifically on the equipment and technologies that improve performance and safety in tunnelling.
It was an opportunity to hear directly from those working on some of the UK's high-profile tunnelling projects, such as Hinkley Point C, Paisley Project, Northern Line extension and Thames Tideway.
Some of the key take-aways for us were updates on the latest tunnelling innovations, as well as best practices to help overcome key technical challenges.
RVT Technical Manager Ted Taylor commented, "The TunnelTech event provided a fascinating insight into the challenges and opportunities the industry is facing. It was good to learn from those at the forefront of developments and network with other industry professionals."
