Project requirements and the geological and hydrological
conditions determine the optimum machine type. Our product range
Earth Pressure Balance (EPB) Shield: Ideal for
soft and cohesive soils.
Mixshield: Very large excavation diameters can be
controlled safely - also in heterogeneous geologies.
Single Shield TBM: Ideal for tunnelling through
rock and other stable, non-groundwater-bearing soils.
Double Shield TBM: Perfectly suited for long
tunnelling through hard rock.
Gripper TBM: Proven, efficient solution in hard
Partial-face Excavation Machine: Directly
controllable, easily convertible and adaptable in different
AVN, AVNT, AVND: The best option for
microtunnelling: AVN Machines from Herrenknecht.
Auger Boring Machines: The ideal technology for short
HDD Rig: Flexible and environmentally-friendly:
for tunnelling in stable, loose soils and rock.
Direct Pipe®: This method combines the advantages
of microtunnelling and HDD technology. In one step only, a
prefabricated pipeline can be installed and the required
borehole excavated at the same time. This allows speedy and
highly economic installation of pipelines with lengths of more
than 1,500 meters.
Vertical Shaft Sinking Machine VSM: Unique method
for lowering shafts of all kinds in soft and stable soils.
