Our Managing Director Vikramjiet Roy and geosynthetics specialist Pietro Rimoldi will be relating on the applications of this civil engineering technology at the two-day summit due in New Delhi, May 18-20, 2016.
Besides being the official Documentation Partner at the event, Maccaferri India is participating with two speakers at the 2nd Global Geosynthetics Summit, which is taking place in New Delhi, May 19-20, 2016. Following their proven expertise gained at Maccaferri, our Managing Director Vikramjiet Roy and our geosynthetics specialist Pietro Rimoldi will be among the lecturers of the conference.
Jointly sponsored by India’s Ministry of Textiles and the Confederation of Indian Industry, and further to an impressively successful first edition last year, the Geosynthetics Summit will feature two full refresher days about the latest developments in this area of civil engineering, while focusing on three main infrastructural areas: roads and bridges, railways and coastal and river control works.
Among the objectives of this year’s edition, the conference is expected to give a major contribution to the development of geosynthetic-based infrastructural projects in India, particularly in the roads and railways sectors.
As one of the early proponents of geotextiles/technical textiles in the Country, Maccaferri India’s Managing Director Vikramjiet Roy will be addressing the audience with our vote of thanks, following the speeches from government’s representatives. Mr. Roy will then actively participate in a panel discussion aimed at assessing the requirements for a unified code system to specific geosynthetics applications.
Maccaferri’s geosynthetics expert Pietro Rimoldi, in addition, will be relating on the latest achievements about this technology, being used in slope reinforcement applications, as well as giving the latest information on the international standards for roadmaking works.
