Tunnelling Operations

Confined Space Robotic Demolition Tunnelling Operations

For over 40 years, Gnat UK’s Civil Engineering Division have tackled and resolved a formidable range of technically challenging Tunnelling Operations - These span major refurbishment works in the London Underground and Crossrail, Network Rail, HS2, the Mersey Tunnel, plus numerous Reservoir, Water and Urban Sewerage infrastructure schemes

Within the confined spaces of the tunnelling environment, Gnat UK's Brokk and Husqvarna 3-Phase Electric Motors deliver outstanding concentrated power. Being free of harmful diesel fumes, they provide the ideal 'clean' solution, enabling safe, time-efficient operation within difficult-to-access

Our Robotic division is underpinned by our Diamond Drilling & Sawing, Cold-Cutting and Aquajet and ERGO Robotic Hydrodemolition Teams - Ensuring we can deliver cost-effective, safe, one-stop-solutions to Main Contractors.
