Electricity generation using hydropower will continue to offer great potential in the future. Most regions use only a small percentage of the technically possible energy production from water.
A growing share of the energy mix: hydropower is always available, ensures independence from fossil fuels and reduces CO2 emissions.
We are committed to sustainable energy
Producing energy from hydropower requires tunnelling technology that bores along the specified alignment with the utmost precision. That's why we are your partner for small and large hydropower projects.
Energy demand is rising worldwide, so renewables are becoming increasingly important. Hydropower is already being used intensively today, but will also offer immense potential in the future. We combine our know-how for the energy of tomorrow: with Herrenknecht's tunnelling technology, shafts and galleries for hydroelectric power plants can be created with absolute precision – in various diameters and inclinations. That's why contractors worldwide rely on our project-specific customized technologies that lay the foundation for fast, smooth and efficient project completion. Herrenknecht machines can cope with tight space constraints, can be used in all geologies and build high quality tunnel structures with maximum safety. Exactly where they are needed.
Around the globe, more than a hundred kilometers of tunnel tubes for the expansion and new construction of hydropower plants have already been built using a wide variety of tunnelling technologies from Herrenknecht. For your project this means:
The efficient operation of hydropower plants often requires a wide variety of tunnels, galleries and shafts. With our broad portfolio of tunnelling technology, these infrastructures are created with maximum safety for people and technology – always exactly along the specified alignment.
