WORLD TUNNEL CONGRESS 2017

KERN Tunneltechnik at the WTC 2017

This year’s ITA-AITES World Tunnel Congress, taking place June 9-15 in Bergen, Norway, Kern Tunneltechnik and Putzmeister will exhibit together.
The event will see the launch of Formkret, an innovative formwork filling system developed in partnership by the two companies.
Through this alliance, two brands synonymous with quality and technological leadership are joining forces to provide advanced concrete application solutions for tunnels worldwide.
The state-of- the-art automated formwork filling system Formkret is designed to enhance safety, reduce workforce-related costs by up to 60% along with project timelines while allowing other work to be carried out simultaneously thanks to its compact structure. Once a manual, labour-intensive process, the application of concrete secondary linings in tunnels has been brought into the 21 st century, thanks to Formkret.
Regulated by a set of two-way valves integrated into the formwork structure and connected by a single delivery line that links the entire system in sequential rows, this latest innovation helps to reduce the need for manual work, enhancing worksite safety and speeding up the overall process.
Kern Tunneltechnik and Putzmeister now offer a complete package solution for tunnel construction: bespoke Kern secondary lining systems as per customers’ specifications + Formkret formwork filling system + Putzmeister concrete pumps. This integrated solution for concrete delivery in tunneling is an integral part of our premium services, and highlights our commitment to engineering excellence.
