SEGIS Istanbul Presentation

Rave reviews received Barthauer associate Dipl. Ing. Jörg Martin for his presentation “Successful Design of Sewer Rehabilitation” at the SEGIS conference, which took place in Istanbul November last year. The event with the subtitle „INTERNATIONAL SMART INFRASTRUCTURE AND GEOGRAPHIC INFORMATION SYSTEMS” was attended by approximately 300 visitors.  The congress, which took place at Silence Hotel on the Asian site of Istanbul, was organized by the Turkish Ministry of Environment and Urban Planning in collaboration with Piri Reis Map, Real Estate and the GIS Association.  The congress made clear the need for a nationwide concept of “technical infrastructure management” which involves the management of oil pipe lines, natural gas transmission and distribution lines, as well as transportation, irrigation and sewage systems. The presenting and exhibiting companies showedpromising solutions to solve infrastructure problems and manage cities effectively.  Mr. Martin, by the way being the only foreign speaker who even presented in fluent Turkish, received a lot of positive attention and was honored with a award for his participation.
