Atlas Pile Testing Systems founder Rory O’Rourke presented the Titan 650 to China’s National Academic Piling Conference.
He was the only international guest speaker invited to address the prestigious two-day conference in Hefi.

Hundreds of technician and potential customers listened as O’Rourke revealed the benefits of the Titan 650, which is fully compliant with the ICESPERWall Third Edition.
O’Rourke, said: “It was an honour to be asked to present and there was no doubt that the audience were genuinely interested in the Titan 650 and the advantages it offers to the industry.
“There was no real issue with the language barrier as pile testing is the same the world over.
‘But it is clear that the technological advances offered by the Titan 650 could be hugely advantages to the construction industry in China and across Asia.
“Some, not all, but some of the techniques used across Asia are outdated and rely on manual labour which can be dangerous and time intensive.
“The Titan 650 offers a huge advancement for piling companies across Asia and the feedback was incredible and we hope we can raise the standards of the industry worldwide.”
