________________ Whether for metro, road, railway, pipelines, utility, hydropower, mining or exploration, our mechanized tunnelling technology is the best choice for a wide range of infrastructure construction projects. Based on our unrivaled technical expertise, we are successful in four fields of business around the world.
The year 2007 marked a turning point in the history of mankind: for the first time, more people live in cities than in the countryside. In the year 2025, the human population of the planet will exceed 8 billion. Urbanization processes are marching rapidly ahead. To keep people and goods on the move, the way ahead is moving underground with the help of Herrenknecht tunnel boring machines. Several hundred Herrenknecht tunnel boring machines are currently in operation around the world - creating new, efficient traffic and transport infrastructures. More
As the world's population grows, so does the need for underground supply and disposal pipe systems. Herrenknecht Utility Tunnelling equipment is in operation around the world. Above ground, life, traffic, business and the environment remain undisturbed. Compared to conventional construction measures, Herrenknecht Micromachines, HDD Rigs and Shaft Sinking Machines set new standards for safety, cost-efficiency and environmental protection. More than 850 machines are busy proving this around the world. More
Herrenknecht supplies innovative deep drilling rigs for projects around the world to explore deep and near-surface geothermal energy as well as oil and gas deposits. The exploration of deep underground energy sources is a demanding challenge. Deep drilling operations place both team and technology under extreme and permanent pressure. The required timeframes for achieving targets are tight, and the demands for human safety and the stability of the drilling hole are very high. Whether the search for and utilization of new onshore and offshore energy sources are economically reasonable also depends on the efficiency of the drilling technology used. Together with its partners from the industry, Herrenknecht is a driving force for the continued development of drilling technology. More
Rapid, safe and reliable exploration of underground raw material deposits - at depths of 2,000 meters and more - plays and increasingly important role for the leading mining companies. Mining equipment made by Herrenknecht is increasingly involved in this. Mechanized drilling technology has significant advantages over conventional methods. Mining infrastructures can be made faster, more reliable and considerably safer for the workforce with innovate excavation technology. Herrenknecht is a driving force for this progress, working together with its customers in the mining sector. More
