Speaker: Mike Young, PE, CCM, - Project Director, Bowers+Kubota KK Tunnel CM Team.
Title: Kaneohe - Kailua Waste Water Conveyance & Treatment Facilities Project.
TBM tunnel boring for the Kaneohe-Kailua gravity sewer project is complete. The Kailua Tunnel Influent Pump Station (TIPS) and Kaneohe Tunnel Influent Facility (TIF) projects have been awarded and are under way. Join us for an update on the program. The Kaneohe-Kailua Gravity Sewer Tunnel Project is an approximate 3-mile tunnel from Kaneohe Wastewater Pre-Treatment Facility (WWPTF) to Kailua Regional Wastewater Treatment Plant (WWTP) that is being constructed by a tunnel boring machine (TBM). The TBM is operated by Southland-Mole JV and was named Pohakulani by the Aikani Elementary Robotics Team. Since the tunnel will convey wastewater by gravity flow, it slopes down toward the Kailua Regional WWTP, starting at a depth of approximately 35 feet below ground level at the Kaneohe WWPTF, and ending approximately 62 feet below ground level at the Kailua Regional WWTP. There are major facilities being constructed at both ends of the tunnel. New facilities at KRWWTP include a new pump station within the Kailua shaft, new headworks, generator building, and odor control facilities. At Kaneohe, a new generator building and odor control facilities will be built. For more information, visit: www.kktunnel.org

Title: Navy Energy Initiatives in Hawaii.
The US Navy is being referred to more and more as “The Great Green Fleet”. From waste beef fat for ship’s fuel, hybrid engines for surface ships, biofuels for aircraft, solar and wind farms, a trash to energy incinerator and capturing waste methane from landfills the Navy is in the van for developing alternative/renewable energy to and in support of the Fleet. Bryan will discuss the extraordinary ways the Navy in Hawaii is taking on these energy initiatives.
