Hydropower

Environmental tunnelling for reliable green energy

Steep mission: A Herrenknecht TBM excavates a headrace tunnel with a gradient of 40° for the Limmern power plant (Switzerland).

________________ Herrenknecht technology is the right choice when extending or building large and smaller hydropower plants. Tunnel boring machines and shaft construction systems that are optimally adapted to the jobsite conditions produce efficient infrastructures. Even under space constraints, horizontal and inclined galleries as well as vertical shafts can be excavated on a precise course – quickly, safely, and economically.

Exemplary jobsite overview: Hydropower plants must be adapted to the topographical conditions, no matter how big or how small. Herrenknecht machines create horizontal and inclined galleries and vertical shafts for any plant.


 

More than 75 kilometers of tunnels and galleries are excavated for hydropower plants with Herrenknecht machines.

Horizontal, vertical, or inclined: Herrenknecht offers machines for the construction of underground infrastructures, no matter in what direction.
