Tunnelling

Modern tunnel systems pave the way for the future

The future of mobility lies underground – let's build it together

Advancing urbanization requires the construction of modern infrastructures to create new connections in and between metropolitan areas. For this, our tunnelling technology is paving the way underground safely and efficiently.

By 2030 already, 60 percent of the world's population is expected to live in cities. In planning offices and on jobsites, professionals are working hard to meet the increasing demands for ever more efficient infrastructures. Almost always there with them: Herrenknecht experts and tunnel boring machines. With our tunnelling technology and our expertise from thousands of completed projects, we support contractors on a daily basis to successfully carry out challenging underground traffic and supply projects. Our high-tech machines enable high advance rates in any geology with maximum safety for buildings, infrastructures and personnel. Working in teamwork together, modern, integrated tunnel systems for metro, road, railway, passenger, supply and disposal tunnels are the result – built on budget and on schedule.
