Trenchless Romania Conference & Exhibition is the most important event in the region showcasing horizontal directional drilling technologies for the installation of public utilities. This event annually brings together the most significant companies in the trenchless sector, from drilling equipment manufacturers to contractors and network operators. Trenchless Romania aims to raise awareness in the region about the benefits of trenchless technologies, which are both more economical and faster, with minimal environmental intrusion.

This year the conference had distinguished guests such as Klaus Beyer – International Director ISTT (International Society for Trenchless Technology), Florian Burnar – President of the Association for European Projects and Funds and EBRD Specialists (European Bank for Reconstruction and Development) who presented investment plans for Romania.

Since 2022, Trenchless Romania Club has been the only entity affiliated with the International Society for Trenchless Technology (ISTT) and proudly represented Romania at the EUROPEAN NO-DIG event in Berlin, where professionals from across Europe gathered to discuss and find solutions to infrastructure challenges.

Conference program

The conference day was structured in two technical panels with relevant presentations about the latest equipment for the no-dig industry and related activities for water, sewage, gas and optic fibre. Each year the organizers are looking to have high quality programme that can provide a rich source of information bringing added value for all the participants. Also, the show presented the exhibition area where participants in the event had the opportunity to get informed about the products and services presented directly from the companies’ representatives.
