Optimizing energy consumption in tunnelling

In times of climate change and rising energy costs, it is vital to develop energy-saving alternatives. Because in the past energy prices have been lower, less attention was paid to the issue of "energy efficiency" than will be the case in future.

In the years to come, energy-saving tunnel boring machines will play an increasingly essential role in the economic viability of tunnel projects. Moving forward, our goal is therefore to produce tunnel boring machines in as environmentally and resource-friendly a way as possible.

Herrenknecht AG is taking up this challenge and developing energy-efficient and energy cost-saving tunnel boring machines. The aim is to sustainably reduce energy consumption and CO2 emissions.
