Ground Freezing in Civil and Tunnel Construction

Ground freezing is frequently used in civil engineering and tunneling, for ground stabilization in water-bearing strata. 

This technique is now frequently employed for the construction of cross-cuts between adjacent tunnels and access openings for tunnel boring machines in launch pits.

Deilmann-Haniel Shaft Sinking has helped pioneer a number of technical developments, including mobile container-installed freezing plant and directional drilling technology for freeze-hole drilling.

We have numerous references involving the application of ground freezing technology in tunneling projects.
