We are there, where you face complex challenges in tunnel construction
Throughout the world, mechanized tunnelling is driving the safe and cost-effective creation of key infrastructures. For the initial lining of the bored tubes, concrete segments weighing several tonnes and produced in precision moulds are required. Optimized production of thousands of segments is an integral part of an efficient tunnel jobsite.
More than 54,000 reinforced concrete segments have been installed in the approx. 10 km long Filder Tunnel. With 42 precision moulds and a sophisticated handling concept Herrenknecht Formwork contributed to a reliable production of the segments.
"We experienced the team from Schwanau to a realiable partner, either regarding quality and delivery time as well as flexibility and adaptation to special requirements."
