Geofluid 98

Thousands of visitors flocked to Geofluid 98, the international exhibition and conference on prospecting, extracting and conveying underground fluids. Ground Engineering joined them in Piacenza, Italy last month to see the latest technological developments.

Italian equipment manufacturers have long been associated with innovative technology and high quality for a wide range of geotechnical applications and visitors were not disappointed, with many companies showing new drilling rigs as well as monitoring equipment, instrumentation and software.

For drilling rigs, most manufacturers' efforts focused on developing smaller, more powerful and versatile machines that offer customers high flexibility.

Despite the slump in the Italian construction market, the mood was buoyant, with most companies reporting that the export market is still very healthy, especially in the United States and South America.
