TERRATEC is one of the world’s leading designers and manufacturers of Tunnel Boring Machines, encompassing all ground conditions and diameters – ranging from 0.60 to over 16 metres – as well as TBM back-up equipment, Raise Boring Machines and other custom-engineered products for the tunnelling and mining industries.
TERRATEC’s success is based on the experience and excellence of its engineering team. This team includes engineers with more than 40-years of experience in the design and manufacture of tunneling and mining machines who have worked on some of the world’s largest underground projects. TERRATEC is also fully managed by engineers enabling quick and efficient solutions that meet customer expectations.
In 2018, the Australian TBM manufacturer merged with its long-term Japanese partner JIM Technology (JIMT) – which in turn was formed by the consolidated TBM divisions of three Japanese industrial giants: IHI Corp., JFE Engineering Corp. and Mitsubishi Heavy Industries (MHI) – bringing togeher the combined engineering experience of several of the world’s major TBM manufacturers that have collectively delivered more than 4,000 machines globally since 1939.
TERRATEC products are well-known in the industry as Robust, Durable and Safe, basic principles that must prevail in the design of any equipment made to work in the extreme conditions encountered underground. As a provider of Total Tunnelling Solutions, TERRATEC’s scope of work extends to cutstom engineering, as well as the operation and maintenance of tunnel boring equipment and the supply of ancillary equipment.
Since its establishment, TERRATEC’s innovative spirit and the consequent introduction of new ideas into the industry, have been a trade mark of the company. Today, TERRATEC continues to cooperate with various universities, government institutions and industry on the development of new tunnelling and mining technologies, working towards the next-generation of machine design (for example the UB1000 Universal borer - http://terratec.co/NewsInfos/detail/59).
