New Pipeline Construction and Site Investigation 

April 20th, 2021 | 2:00 PM – 3:00 PM EST

A look into new pipeline construction and site investigations. This webinar will discuss techniques for microtunnelling, horizontal directional drilling, and trenchless site investigations. 

The first presentation, “Long Distance Microtunnelling with Direct Pipe and E-Power Pipe” by Gerhard Lang from Herrenknecht, will discuss Direct Pipe that has initially been developed to complement the HDD technology for challenging river crossings. 

Next, Mark Knight with the Centre for Advancement of Trenchless Technologies will present “Site Investigation Requirements for Trenchless New Construction Pipeline Projects”. He will discuss how you can reduce your construction costs, construction delays and potential project liabilities by doing better site investigations before the project is tendered. 

Last, Sam Ghosn from Ductile Iron Pipe Research Association will present “Horizontal Directional Drilling with Ductile Iron Pipe”. He will talk about the advantages of Horizontal directional drilling (HDD) over traditional open-cut construction methods. 

Attendees are welcomed to participate in the Q&A session that will follow the presentations.

Subsurface Utility Engineering: Current Practices for Better Projects

Modern cities’ right-of-ways (ROWs) are crowded with water, sewer, telecommunication, and power cables – critical infrastructure for the operation of our communities. Infrastructure projects have been increasing in size and complexity over the years, and subsurface utility engineering (SUE) practices help utility owners and contractors to decrease project risks and protect assets. This webinar will discuss important SUE guidelines and tools.

The first presentation, “UESI Updates on the ASCE 38 and SUE for Municipalities Recent Release” by Lawrence Arcand from 4Sight Utility Engineers, will go over the recent ASCE 38 updates and important Utility Coordination best practices

.
Jamie Bradburn, from T2 Utility Engineers, will present “MCGPR and its Applications”. He will examine the 3D imaging of high-density Multi-Channel Ground Penetrating Radar technique and discuss how it can produce a plan image of what is buried beneath a survey area.

Attendees are welcomed to participate in the Q&A session that will follow the presentations.

Styrene CIPP, Lessons Learned

Since the early 1970’s, the installation of Cured-in-Place Pipe (CIPP) liners to cost-effectively renovate deteriorate and leaking sanitary sewers and storm drains. Most of CIPP liners use Polyester and Vinyl Ester thermoset resins have a small amount of Styrene. This Styrene is a critical component for the CIPP liner as it acts as a catalyst to transform the resin from a liquid to a hard liner during the liner cure process by the addition of energy in the form of hot water, steam or UV light. During the liner cure, styrene can be released into the air, steam, hot water in concentration that people can smell. 

This Webinar consist of two presentations. The first will be by Dr. Mark Knight who will discuss the AEGION-UW styrene lateral study goals and objectives, key findings, and conclusions.

The second presentation by Dennis Pivin AEGION VP Environmental, Health, and Security will discuss AEGION’s proactive approach for workers and the public’s health and safety and newly published NASSCO new guidelines for worker health and safety during CIPP operations.

Rehabilitation of Trunk Sewers

Horizontal Directional Drilling (HDD) is one of the trenchless technologies used for the installation of buried infrastructures such as water and sewer lines, gas lines, and telecom and power cable conduits and offers significant environmental and social advantages with minimal surface disturbance. A successful HDD project depends on consideration of important geotechnical factors, accurate bore path design, and selection of proper drilling fluid and equipment such as drilling rigs, rims, and fluid pumps.

This webinar will review unique HDD projects where novel add-on technologies and design reconsiderations were applied to address constructability concerns and to solve complex problems.

Tools and Fluids for Underground Success

Trunk sewers, as with other parts of the water and wastewater infrastructure system, are approaching the end of their designed service life. Many Canadian municipalities have developed asset management plans to renovate these critical infrastructure assets, as they have been experiencing increased storm and flooding events. Trunk sewers are critical parts of the wastewater infrastructure system, as they are typically installed deeper than other utilities. Therefore, their collapse can cause serious damage to other buried utilities, roads, and public properties. Trenchless technologies are proactive solutions that are deployed to renovate and rehabilitate trunk sewers and avoid significant financial, social, and environmental costs. 

This webinar will provide an overview of two challenging renovation projects of large diameter trunk sewers in the City of Toronto. The first presentation will be the “Rehabilitation of Trunk Sewers in Mimico Creek Ravine” by Marya Jetten from Jacobs, and the second presentation will be the “Reflections on the Successful Sliplining of the Humber Sanitary Trunk Sewer” by Mariana Balaban from the City of Toronto. The speakers will discuss the technical and environmental challenges faced during their projects and present strategies and innovative solutions selected to overcome those challenges and successfully deliver the projects.

Driving Savings in Trenchless New Pipeline Installations

Trenchless technologies, such as Horizontal Directional Drilling (HDD) and Micro-tunnelling, have provided cost-saving opportunities and solutions for new pipeline construction. The minimal surface disturbances offer significant financial, environmental, and social advantages. Yet more cost savings can be achieved in trenchless projects! Innovative tools and procedures, such as telematics, slurry management technologies, project management software, and utility mapping solutions can drive efficiencies and reduce out of pocket expenses on every phase of the trenchless projects.   

The first presentation will be the “Driving job site efficiencies through better data ” by Cory Mass from Vermeer. The second presentation will be the ” Effective drilling fluid and slurry management options ” by Brandon Wagner from Vermeer, and the third presentation will be the “Effectively Mapping Utility Locates” by Brock Kingston from Cansel.

Increasing Microtunnelling Project Efficiencies in a Pandemic Scenario

With increased urban densification, microtunnelling has been an excellent alternative for gravity and pressure pipeline installations. This construction method has consistently yielded environmental, social, and economic benefits. However, a pandemic scenario requires professionals and organizations to use every tool in the toolbox to achieve better project results. This webinar will present two microtunnelling case studies that can help you to increase project efficiency. 

The first case study focuses on the latest developments for microtunnelling design models. Kyle Verwey, from Earth Boring, will present the advancements on Microtunnelling Boring Machine (MTBM) predictive model development, including the comparison of model results and breakdown on the factors when considering MTBM designs.

Geoff White, from DiCorp, presents the second case study about the on-site solidification of microtunnelling spoils in urban infrastructure projects. Significant performance gains on the spoil disposal costs for the Eglington Crosstown LRT Subway tunnels, under Eglington Ave East from Hwy 404 to Allan Rd in Toronto, will be discussed. Attendees are welcomed to participate in the Q&A session with both speakers.
