Herrenknecht supplies 15 tunnel boring machines to Doha
The State of Qatar is pursuing a large and ambitious vision destined to provide the highest standards of living to the country and its citizens by the year 2030. An important component for this is a modern transport infrastructure. Consequently the capital Doha, chronically plagued by congestion, is to receive a completely new, very efficient metro system. The company Herrenknecht was charged with the delivery of 15 high-tech tunnel boring machines for this purpose. Today HE Jassim Saif Ahmed Al Sulaiti, the Minister of Transport - State of Qatar, took a closer look at a first tunnel boring machine for this major project at the Herrenknecht plant in Schwanau together with the former German Chancellor Dr. h.c. Gerhard Schröder.
