HS2: A Lighthouse project for the UK, for the tunnelling world and also for VMT!

The UK has always been a pioneer in mechanised tunnel construction. Owners as well as construction companies are not only open but are demanding innovative solutions outright.


And “High Speed Two (HS2)” is not only the most important European infrastructure project ongoing but the hot spot for new technologies and product innovations.

That’s why we didn’t only show up with a wide range of our established product solutions, but we also brought along our youngest innovations:

  • Segment.Check – an AI based quality assurance solution that inspects each tunnel segment via cameras directly before it is built in.
  • Our solution for virtual master ring construction that uses the data of 3D laser tracker measurements to construct a digital ring which is more meaningful than a traditionally built master ring.

Want to know more about these youngest offsprings? Our colleagues, Jonatan Marcos and Florian Werres will tell you!
