Fitting competition 2013

June 5 was an important day for Dispuut Watermanagement. The yearly student pipe fitting competition was organized again!

Perfect weather and a full subscription list were two prerequisites for a successful event. In the morning the teams refreshed the skills of last year or got quickly familiar with the procedure under supervision of the KNW instructors. The competition was opened  at the onset of lunch break by the founding father of the event: prof. dr. ir. Luuk Rietveld. During lunch the instructors from various drinking water companies gave a life demonstration, after which the first team started. The contest got a lot of attention from the students passing by, especially the ‘tap-pushing’ device was a catcher.

The winning team consisted of Erik and Maik, who won the prestigious 150 euro. A special surprise connected to the first prize was the invitation for the national fitterij event during the Waternet-fair, during which they can show what they are really worth. 

Last but not least, we would like to thank especially Saint-Gobain, Beulco, Conval and KNW for their support in organizing this event.
