Rock tunnelling

Underground construction solutions and zoning make it possible to implement various facilities located in spaces cut into rock.

Rock tunnels

Rock tunnelling sites may include, for example, sports centres, parking facilities, seasonal heat storages, water power plants or wastewater treatment plants.

Urbanisation creates needs for traffic solutions and functional infrastructure. Spaces for different functions, such as metro, rail line and traffic tunnels or joint-use tunnels can be cut into rock. Furthermore, existing rock tunnels and spaces require renovation for extending their lifecycle or their purpose may be changed from the original intended use.

We offer rock construction services and solutions according to the customer’s needs, ranging from the generation of ideas and planning to the final product. We are special experts in demanding rock excavation and reinforcement, tunnel and mining contracts, and open quarrying. Our rock construction services also include shaft excavation, renovation of spaces cut into rock, construction excavation and furnishing of spaces cut into rock.

We develop rock tunnelling

In rock construction, we use a real-time production management system to which equipment used in tunnel excavation is connected.  We use a wide range of rock drilling, charging, reinforcement and sealing equipment suitable for large- and small-scale excavation, reinforcement and sealing work of different types. As the leading company in the field, we constantly develop new rock engineering implementation and operating models to ensure that the customer’s targets are achieved. These models include cooperative forms of contracting that we already use in our current projects. We also take part in the product development of excavation and mining machines with the manufacturers.
