EXPERTS FROM THE PLASTIC PIPE INDUSTRY TO GATHER AT AMI’S PLASTIC PIPES IN INFRASTRUCTURE 2016 CONFERENCE

The​ next edition of AMI's Plastic Pipes in Infrastructure Conference will take place at the Hilton Kensington in London, United Kingdom from 19-21 April 2016.

Plastic pipe systems (made of PVC, polyethylene, polypropylene, polyamide and GRP) are already widely used in many applications, such as drinking water supply & distribution, gas transmission & distribution, underground drainage & sewerage, road & railway drainage, land drainage, underground cable protection and district heating, having made good progress in substituting ‘traditional" materials — metal pipes, clay, concrete, etc. Plastic systems are easier to transport and install, environmentally friendly and provide improved reliability by eliminating the risk of corrosion. Despite these important benefits, however, ‘traditional" systems continue to be used in certain market segments — for instance in large diameter pipes. To generate profitable growth, the plastic pipes industry needs to continue to innovate, constantly improving its value proposition. Innovation is indeed taking place at all levels and AMI"s Plastic Pipes in Infrastructure 2016 conference will provide an invaluable opportunity to highlight such innovation and discuss current and future challenges faced by the industry.

The two-day programme will commence with market and end user overviews from AMI"s Vice President, Noru Tsalic and AFFINITY WATER"s Joseph Sanders, Leakage and Network Strategy Manager. The rest of day one will comprise sessions on Testing and Qualification and New Approaches in Joining and Installation.  

Day two"s session on Developments in Materials and Design will see NATIONAL GRID GAS partner with EGEPLAST INTERNATIONAL to present their construction and operational experience in high pressure reinforced PE pipes. 

The speakers list also includes pipes and fittings manufacturers such as Friatec (Aliaxis Group), Fox Fittings, Polyplastic, Amiantit, Flowline, Advanced Drainage systems. 

Plastic Pipes in Infrastructure 2016 boasts a truly international audience, ranging from India and Iran to Europe and North America.  It also brings together representatives of the entire supply chain, offering unrivalled opportunities to network, exchange experience and learn through interaction with colleagues, suppliers, customers and competitors.
