Plastic benefits piling – a responsible long lasting product for recycled plastics

The discussion on the responsible use of plastics is extremely current new. This seminar will illustrate that Plastic Piling, made from recycled pvc, is an extremely responsible outlet for recycling plastic. Plastic benefits piling, combining a method that provides rapid installation, with little to no site preparation; with the longevity of the plastic material. Clearly suited for flood barriers, cut-off structures, emergency breach repairs, erosion & scour protection.

The Right Technology to obtain the Correct Solution

Assessing solutions to address coastal erosion and flooding may require using different types of technology that enable you to collect the necessary data to engineer a solution. With the use of Drones in the air, Hydrones on the water and terrestrial Laser Scanning, the solutions are readily available. Join us to see how to combine these technologies that allow you to collect the required data to assess and find the right solution.

Slope Stabilisation in Marine Environments – The Cambrian Campaign West Wales

DYWIDAG supply a wide range of geotechnical systems used in slope stabilisation. This talk focuses on a series of rock faces stabilised on the west cost of Wales for Network Rail. In order to minimise maintenance and provide a 120-year design life in this marine environment a fully stainless system was required. Utilising DYWIDAG’s HCR Stainless Steel Threadbar and Geobrugg Stainless Steel Tecco, framework contractor Alun Griffiths carried out rock bolting on a series of faces along the route.

Utilising drones for large scale marine and coastal asset management

In a period of unprecedented technological and regulatory advances within the unmanned aviation sector we are now experiencing the early stages of maturity in terms of established best practice and acceptance of the value drone data can provide. Drawing on our experience in Marine and Coastal work, this seminar will set out to highlight some of the best and worse practises as well as tips on growing external and internal teams.


14.45 - 15.15



Mr. Pietrucha will present different directions of development of our products in order to create innovative flood protection and prevention solutions. First of all, he will talk about development and upgrading the qualities of the existing products, secondly about new, innovative materials to finally move to complete new solutions based on the existing products.
