Day 1 of Utility Week Live 2016 Proves a Huge Success

So, the first day of Utility Week Live 2016 has come to a close and it’s been a huge success.

Located at stand F22 in Birmingham’s renowned NEC centre, our presence at the event was met with great reception, and we’re glad to have been able to meet and converse with many like minded professionals from the utilities sector.

But not all the action took place at our stand. We also had various demonstrations taking place throughout the day, allowing delegates to get hands-on and test their strength (and weight) against our industry leading protective coating: Adalline® 400.

Specifically, we invited visitors to take part in our sledgehammer challenge and try their luck at walking on water. However, for those of you that missed the action, fear not, you can join us at the Outdoor Demo Zone tomorrow (18th May 2016) at these times. You will also have plenty of opportunities for one to one meetings with our technical specialists including Nigel, our Utility Services Manager and John, our Civil and Flood Engineer.

Utility Week Live 2016 also saw our Group Utilities Resilience Manager, Chris Wood, deliver an insightful talk detailing everything from the near-limitless applications of Adalline® 400, to the need for holistic approaches to flood mitigation and oil containment.

We are very grateful to all those who assisted with the water ingress, starting from the initial call out response, co-ordinating and deploying the team to site with all the necessary equipment to help manage the large volume of water that was entering the building and the continued support until resolution of the external leak and the assistance with the cleaning up process.
