Hyperbaric Tunneling

Assembly, refitting and repair work in mechanical tunnel boring have become part of our core business.
We employ processes and equipment specially developed for these purposes, including certified cutting and welding work and a water jet cutting system that delivers pressures of up to 2,500bar.

For many years we have collaborated closely with authorities and other organisations to improve occupational safety and health protection standards. The worldwide regulations for hyperbaric work apply only to pressures up to 3.6bar (in HSE countries up to 3.45bar); beyond that there are no official standards and tables that permit or regulate such work.

We have developed our own decompression tables and procedures as well as rules and regulations and have copyrighted them. These are approved and recognized worldwide. In addition, we have developed a method that plans decompression and working times to achieve the most efficient results. We attach great importance to ensuring that this work is carried out exclusively by professionals with recognised qualifications and the requisite experience. For this purpose we offer a selection of training courses. To date, we have worked on more than 160 tunnel construction sites in 37 countries.

高压氧环境下作业
在隧道掘进机内进行潜水和压气作业

在40米水深下(相当于4bar的超压),按照常规进行压气作业已不再有效。但是今后的隧道的发展趋势是更深,更长,那么潜水员在压气作业中开始扮演重要角色就只是时间和机会的问题了。

100th anniversary of the Old River Elbe Tunnel – Tunneling in Hamburg

On 7 September1911, the St. Pauli Elbe Tunnel was opened. The "pedestrian tunnel”, took the shipyard and dock workers faster and safer to the South Bank of the River Elbe. With its lifts for pedestrians and vehicles, the tunnel is among the "Historic Civil Engineering Landmarks in Germany” today. On the occasion of its completion 100 years ago, the Museum of Work tells the story of the "underworld in Hamburg”, the story of the planning and construction of tunnels and its consequences for the urban development.

Работы на глубине под давлением

Проведение строительных работ по прокладке тоннелей начиная с глубины 40 метров и при давлении 4,0 бар становится сложным. Это та граница, когда вести строительство тоннеля традиционным способом становится трудно. Однако, как показывает жизнь, большинство новых тоннелей будет прокладываться на все большей глубине и они будут еще длиннее. Это только дело времени, когда к этим работам будут привлекаться специалисты - водолазы.

Trabajos en ambientes hiperbáricos Trabajos de buceo bajo aire comprimido para la construcción mecánica de túneles

Por debajo de una profundidad de 40 metros (equivalente a una sobrepresión de 4,0 bar) los buzos entran en una zona donde ya no resulta efectivo llevar a cabo trabajos en ambientes hiperbáricos bajo las condiciones tradicionales. Dado que la próxima generación de túneles se proyectarán cada vez más largos y a mayor profundidad, era sólo cuestión de tiempo y ocasión el destinar buceadores a los trabajos hiperbáricos.
