About Herrenknecht AG
With Herrenknecht tunnelling technology new connections are created to push the rapid expansion of pipeline networks around the world.
Whether through deserts, waterways or over mountains – pipelines often stretch over thousands of kilometers to transport resources such as oil and gas to their destinations. Again and again small and large obstacles have to be crossed under in order to create new connections on the direct and thus shortest path.
