Safer operations

Herrenknecht demonstrated over 400 functions and features of tunnelling machines and specific applications, which ensure safety for people, the environment, budgets and above-ground topology. With clients and contractors constantly moving into new terrain underground, Herrenknecht also provides concept insights for the latest features and functions in particularly challenging tunnel missions.

Smoother missions

Excellent operational service support in all project phases is a matter of course for Herrenknecht. As part of a digital service platform, Herrenknecht is therefore currently developing an e-maintenance tool and an e-shop for spare and wear parts.

Mega projects

200 kilometers of track, four new, fully automated metro lines with 68 stations and seven technical centers – the Grand Paris Express is currently the largest inner-city infrastructure project in Europe. To date, 12 contractors have ordered 19 project-specific tunnel boring machines and one Vertical Shaft Sinking Machine (VSM) from Herrenknecht.


Group Brands

As world market leader, Herrenknecht offers a complete product portfolio in mechanized tunnelling technology. The Group Brands booth presented individual solutions, complementary equipment and services provided by highly specialized subsidiaries.


At the Herrenknecht Mining booth visitors from the mining sector could discuss the latest excavation technologies in that field with their colleagues. Whether for vertical access or production shafts, inclined vehicle access ramps, ventilation shafts or transport routes, Herrenknecht technology is designed for smallest and largest diameters and can reach depths of up to 2,000 meters.


Outside booth

In the open-air area north, Herrenknecht presented its technology live. Visitors could explore the latest machines and watch them in action.

Well done!
