Large-scale projects in small diameters win GSTT Award 2015
May 04, 2015
Two projects in which microtunnelling machines from Herrenknecht are driving new sewers have been awarded the "GSTT Award 2015" by the German Society for Trenchless Technology e.V. (GSTT).
Herrenknecht produced the tunnel boring machines for this project and put together a tailor-made service package: Because only Muslims are allowed to enter the city of Mecca, together with the construction company Saudi Binladin Group Saudi Arabia a special remote monitoring system customized for the project was developed.
The GSTT Award in "Gold" was awarded to the Emschergenossenschaft Water Management Society. As the project owner of the Emscher renaturation it was honored for the planning and construction of the 35 kilometer long section BA 30 between Dortmund and Bottrop. The construction company Wayss & Freytag Ingenieurbau AG is driving more than 25 kilometers of the sewer sections with an EPB Shield and five AVN machines from Herrenknecht. At this large-scale project, the renaturation of the Emscher, a variety of tunnelling machines from Herrenknecht have been in use for about 20 years. At the construction sections 20 and 40, the construction company PORR GmbH is excavating about 23 kilometers of sewage tunnels with three EPB shields.
The German Society for Trenchless Technology e.V. (GSTT) confers winner awards in “Gold”, “Silver” and Bronze for current trenchless construction projects. An extraordinary and spectacular international project receives a special "International" award. The award ceremony took place on March 24, 2015 at the official opening ceremony of the exhibition "Wasser Berlin International" (International Trade Fair and Congress for Water and Wastewater) in Berlin.
