As you are aware, Nepal Tunnelling Association (NTA) was formed in September 2011 to promote usage, research and knowledge dissemination of underground space (tunnels, caverns and shafts) for safe, sustainable and eco-friendly infrastructure development in Nepal using state-of-the-art and indigenous technologies and establish relations with similar organizations worldwide. NTA is the local chapter of the International Tunnelling and Underground Space Association (ITA) and conforms to the aims and objectives of ITA.
In continuation with our efforts towards knowledge and experience
Sharing from on-going underground construction projects in Nepal with the professionals of Nepal and the region, we are now organizing the Nepal Tunnelling Conference 2018 on 14th December 2018 and Training on “Operation & Maintenance of Hydro Tunnels “on 13th December 2018 in Kathmandu. This Conference is a great opportunity to share project experiences in Nepal regarding site investigations, design, construction techniques, instrumentation and monitoring, back analysis of critical problems, alternate design and construction techniques, and recent developments in the tunnelling industry. Likewise an appropriate contract is the one of the tools to address risks and uncertainties in tunnelling. Experiences have shown that excavating tunnels and caverns in the Himalayas requires a good understanding of geology, adequate site investigations, proper tunnel design, selection of suitable construction methods and suitable contract to tackle associated risks and uncertainties. The Training on “Operation and maintenance of hydro tunnels” will cover different types of contracts, contractual practices, and contractual requirement in design/construction, risk management and risk sharing with cases of studies in tunnelling. This training will be conducted by internationally renowned experts from ITACET Foundation, promoted by the International Tunnelling and Underground Space Association (ITA-AITES).
We request your kind support by sending participants from your organization to this Conference and sponsoring the Conference. The information brochure for this program is attached.
