|"1997 NO DIG" Award leads
to International SuccessSince winning the International Society for Trenchless Technologys "No
Dig 97" Award, innovative Australian ASTT member Rib Loc Australia Pty Ltd has
continued to enjoy international success.
Rib Loc became the first Australian Company to receive the prestigious award when it was presented to Company Chairman Mr Bill Menzel AO OBE at the ISTT Conference in Lausanne, Switzerland in June 1998. The Award for "the most important international advance in trenchless technology in 1997/1998" was for Rib Locs Ribsteel product, a "no dig" structural liner for deteriorated large diameter sewers.
In Australia, Ribsteel has been installed by Interflow Pty Limited, the Australian licensee for Rib Loc sewer rehabilitation systems. The first project involved installing a liner in a 1650mm diameter concrete sewer up to 9 metres deep in water charged ground at Kemblawarra, south of Sydney. Alternatives required excavation, which was impractical in such conditions.

Rib Loc products are now available in over 30 countries world wide as the Company continues to develop innovative pipeline rehabilitation solutions for the trenchless technology industry.
