Winners – Innovation in Shaft Design & Construction 2023

We won (again!)!!

Active Tunnelling Ltd are thrilled that we have been named the winner of the Innovation in Shaft Design & Construction 2023 for our new Hydraulic Underpinning Segment Erector (HUSE) at the New Civil Engineer’s Tunnelling Conference Awards 2023.

The HUSE was designed by our fantastic founder – John Doherty – who helped to build alongside our incredibly talented employees at Active Tunnelling & Trenchless Plant Ltd. It is fully automated and eliminates manual handling. Its reduced shaft programme time eliminates 40% plus of carbon emissions on ring build.

A big thankyou to those at Severn Trent & Galliford Try for allowing us to trial this innovative equipment on the Stroud Sewerage Strategy.

The tunnelling awards showcase & celebrate the very best in tunnelling expertise. We had strong competition and were absolutely thrilled that our hard work was recognised.
