With the experience of more than 4,100 projects, Herrenknecht is a technology and market leader in the area of mechanized tunnelling technology. Herrenknecht is the only company worldwide to deliver cutting-edge tunnel boring machines for all ground conditions and in all diameters – ranging from 0.10 to 19 meters. The product range includes tailor-made machines for traffic, supply and disposal tunnels, technologies for pipeline installation as well as drilling equipment for vertical and inclined shafts and deep drilling rigs.
Innovative solutions for underground supply and disposal systems.
As the world’s population grows the need for underground supply tunnels is also increasing; in emerging and developing countries as well as in modern metropolises. That is why more than 850 Herrenknecht Utility Tunnelling Machines are in operation around the world constructing or laying water and wastewater systems, gas and oil pipelines, as well as conduits for electricity and telecommunications. Here, trenchless tunnelling technology offers a range of advantages compared to conventional construction procedures: transport, business and the environment remain mostly undisturbed when Micromachines, HDD rigs or shaft sinking equipment are being used. Innovations such as Direct Pipe® set new standards in the semi-trenchless installation. The new technology E-Power Pipe® allows the secure and quick installation of underground cable protection pipes with smaller diameters and long advance lengths. Innovative HDD tools simplify pipeline construction operations at key sections. The Herrenknecht product portfolio is completed by a broad range of equipment for the areas of mining (construction of underground infrastructures around raw material deposits) and exploration (oil, gas and geothermal energy).
