    Adding Value: Refuge Chamber Remanufacture and Extension

    Adding Value: Chamber Remanufacture and Extension Author: Erin Mackle, Europe Service Coordinator Refuge chambers are a significant but much-needed investment. With the growth of safety requirements, refuge chambers have become commonplace for the safe retreat of personnel engaged in tunnelling and underground construction. As these are finite projects, what happens to a chamber upon completion? Extending the life of refuge chambers, through remanufacture and upgrades, is both safe and cost-effective. The process generates added value, however, to ensure high safety standards remain, adhering to proper specifications is crucial. Recently, global tunnelling leader Herrenknecht remanufactured and extended several TunnelSAFE chambers in … – More information
