Latest in civil engineering solutions to be on display at firm’s first UK Trench Technology Day

A subsidiary of a global engineering firm is inviting customers to attend its very first UK Trench Technology Day in October.

thyssenkrupp Infrastructure, a leading supplier of civil, marine and foundation engineering solutions, is set to host the event on Thursday 11th October at the National Conference Centre in Solihull, Birmingham.

Organised in collaboration with new and exclusive UK agent Shoring Solutions, the day will give customers within the construction industry a chance to learn more about the latest in trench technology.

Presentations and Q&A sessions on latest concepts such as WBM-Liquid Soil, a discontinuously fluid, selfcompacting and reconsolidating construction material, and the TIBATEK liquid soil bucket, both of which are widely recognised and used throughout Europe as conventional compaction substitutes, will feature during the event.

What’s more, the event will include a hot buffet lunch and free entry to the famous UK National Motorcycle Museum.

WBM-Liquid Soil comprises up to 95% sustainable natural soil or recycled, uncontaminated construction material and is formed by combining binder with water.

The specific added components consist of plasticizer and a cement-based stabiliser, the latter of which ensures early solidification without forming a solid cement paste matrix.

Both this and the TIBATEK liquid soil bucket will allow customers to, in combination with sliding rail linear shoring, minimise excavation and compaction time, neutralise contaminated soils, maximise labour efficiency and help reduce their carbon footprint.

Eduard Mundt, Export Sales Manager for thyssenkrupp Infrastructure, said: “We are delighted to be holding our very first UK Trench Technology Day in Birmingham.

“This event is absolutely essential for customers who are keen to be at the forefront of trench technology and would like to discover how our civil engineering and construction solutions can help their business to thrive and expand.

“I would urge anyone who is interested in attending to register without delay.”

Registrations forms must be completed and returned via email to before Friday 28th September. Forms can alternatively be completed by visiting
