Underground infrastructure was costly and disruptive
Zilper Trenchless is a company that started out of the Massachusetts Institute of Technology (MIT) in 2018.
While leading the trenchless division of a pipeline infrastructure contractor, Roberto realized that there was a big market need for a versatile and cost-effective trenchless technology that could be used in multiple projects.
Since then, he partnered with Daniel, his brother who attended MIT, to develop such a solution.
After a year of hard work and multiple iterations, they developed it, filed for a patent and started executing challenging projects that proved the value of Zilper technology. Thanks to the success of those projects, Zilper Trenchless was awarded as Best New Trenchless Equipment 2019 and Best Trenchless Innovator 2019 at the ICTIS international conference in Bogota, Colombia.
