Products & Services

Due to the constantly growing demand for ores it is becoming more and more attractive to extract raw materials underground at increasingly greater depths.

Whether and when deposits are profitable also depends on the efficiency of the technology used to extract ore deposits. We have therefore used our expertise in mechanized tunnelling to develop innovative machine concepts for a variety of applications in mining. 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. The innovative solutions are based on proven principles and stand for high advance rates and compact design. Herrenknecht's tunnelling technology is thus optimally designed for the safe, fast and efficient mechanized construction of shafts and galleries in all areas of mining.
