________________ Tunnel boring machines are highly complex systems, and their performance also depends on the supply of spare and wear parts according to individual needs and time requirements. A chain of complex process steps must be planned and supervised, ranging from the first proposal lists until delivery to the jobsite. Herrenknecht can help construction companies competently to master this logistics challenge thanks to its many years of jobsite experience and its worldwide service network.
Herrenknecht offers comprehensive spare and wear parts management, ranging from needs assessment, in-house production or ordering from producers or distributors to delivery or efficient storage, including inventory optimization.
As the leading market and technology manufacturer, the company has a great understanding of the optimum interaction between machine, auxiliary components and external influences. Upon request, we provide a contact person in the project for all spare and wear parts produced by us or by suppliers, who knows the TBM and all its components inside out.
Flexible and rapid delivery of spare parts
Short communication channels between Herrenknecht engineers and the jobsite ensure the flexible and rapid delivery of urgently needed spare parts and reduce the customer’s interface expenses. This allows for a consistently high supply quality and thus a high availability of the tunnelling system. A competently-run consignment warehouse or delivery on a running meter basis can save time and human capacities, depending on the project conditions.
The high-quality refurbishment of components in the factory or on the jobsite is also part of spare and wear parts management. In addition, Herrenknecht offers training and in-depth technical consultancy as required.
