Herrenknecht Started bauma 2019 With Coveted Innovation Award
May 13, 2019
Strong start for the Herrenknecht Group at bauma 2019 in Munich, which opened its doors in April. During the opening ceremony evening, Herrenknecht AG received the coveted bauma Innovation Award 2019 in the "Machine" category for the innovative E-Power Pipe® installation method.
A promising start for technology leader Herrenknecht at the bauma 2019 in Munich: in competition with the best manufacturers of construction machinery the newly developed and already practically proven E-Power Pipe® method for the environmentally friendly installation of underground cables was able to take the top spot in the "Machine" category.
During the opening ceremony, Ulrich Schaffhauser, Management Board member received the contested trophy, the bauma Innovation Award 2019. "In its first deployments, the E-Power Pipe® method has already proven to be very convincing. Thanks to the trenchless installation of underground cables, it protects the environment to the greatest possible extent, allows for a rapid construction progress with high quality and is also very economical," said Ulrich Schaffhauser proudly.
The method was jointly developed by Herrenknecht in cooperation with Amprion GmbH and RWTH Aachen University and has already proven success in first projects, which was a prerequisite for winning the Innovation Award.
The Herrenknecht Group was represented at bauma 2019 with four booths on a total of approximately 1,600 square meters of exhibition space. The company invited representatives of contractors, clients and planners from around the world to present them the latest trends and developments in tunnelling technology as well as current tunnel projects.
At its main booth focusing on "Tunnelling", Herrenknecht demonstrated where the journey in tunnelling is going. Pioneering technology that makes the tunnelling process faster and more efficient, web-based services, 400 features and functions for "Safer Operations" as well as Europe's largest urban infrastructure project "Grand Paris Express" was successfully presented.
The Group Brands booth opposite presented the Herrenknecht Group's entire portfolio of upstream and downstream equipment and services provided by highly specialized subsidiaries. Visitors from the mining sector discussed the latest excavation technologies in that field with their colleagues at the Mining booth.
"For us bauma is an ideal platform for informing the industry about groundbreaking technology innovations. Receiving the bauma Innovation Award 2019 for E-Power Pipe® is a successful start." As the leading industry event, the world's largest trade fair sets the trends of the future.
