Maccaferri sponsored and attended the World Tunneling Congress 2019 in Naples (Italy)
WTC is one of the leading exhibitions in the tunneling sector and a chance to share experiences and identify mutual opportunities for growth in an increasingly-critical industry.
The World Tunnel Congress 2019 was held in Naples from 3rd to 9th May 2019. The conference, promoted by the International Tunnelling and Underground Space Association (ITA-AITES) and Società Italiana Gallerie (SIG), was a key event for the engineering and geotechnical sectors linked to tunneling.
WTC Naples 2019 hosted conferences, seminars and workshops related to the world of underground design and construction, with a focus on engineering and innovation. This edition was characterized by a distinctive and unique perspective due to the inclusion of themes suggested by the city of Naples and based on its underground environment, and more generally by the Italian background.
As a player in the tunneling industry, Maccaferri sponsored and exhibited at the event, where our specialists presented to the many visitors the innovative and state-of-art solutions already developed to address many aspects of underground support work. The outdoor booth also showcased the impressive three arm erector, which is part of B.Zero Tondo™ Steel Arch, a tunnel primary support system conceived to address the construction demand for a more effective, safer solution and cost-efficient alternative to traditional tunnel arch support.
We are looking forward to the next World Tunneling Congress that will be hosted in 2020 in Malaysia.
