IATT and ANCE SICILY: trenchless technologies in the new Regional Price Booklist

From January 9th, 2018, the new Regional Price booklist for public works in Sicily is in force, allowing to carry out interventions on the territory directly with trenchless technologies, reducing the social inconvenience the deterioration of road surfaces and respecting the environment. Assessor Marco Falcone has issued a decree that, without waiting for publication times in the Official Journal, has made the Price booklist immediately accessible and downloadable from the website of the Regional Department of Infrastructure of Sicily Region.

The inclusion of trenchless technologies in the price booklist (actually comprising only HDD and Microtunnelling) is the result of a fruitful cooperation between ANCE Sicilia and IATT, which has led also to the organization of a workshop, last October 3rd in Palermo, which saw a large presence of technicians, designers, and professionals of Municipalities, private companies and general contractors highly interested in the no dig technologies.

The next step will be the inclusion in the Price booklist of trenchless technologies for the rehabilitation and renovation of underground infrastructures, thus reflecting the willingness and the innovative spirit of a region wishing to invest in the growth of its territory, encouraging the development of the public works sector.
