Environmental technology award for innovative E-Power Pipe® method.
July 13, 2017 Schwanau / Fellbach, Germany.
Together with grid operator Amprion and RWTH Aachen, tunnel specialist Herrenknecht has developed the innovative E-Power Pipe® microtunnelling technology. The project receives funding from the German Federal Ministry of Economics and Energy. The new method combines proven drilling technologies and systematically develops them further so that in future underground cables can be laid trenchlessly over long distances at shallow depths of two to four meters and with minimal intervention in the landscape. For this almost fully automated drilling technology Herrenknecht has been awarded the Baden-Württemberg Environmental Technology Award.
