Tunneling

Best blasting results. Minimizing excavation costs.

Each tunneling project is different. Requirements and constraints regarding blasting are different, and every day, the conditions on site are different. Blasting efficiently is the goal no matter the changing conditions.

Our top priorities are to work safe and to blast safe.

Austin Powder is able to provide products and support to customers’ blasting crews, or perform the blasting with our own teams, either way achieving the desired results.

At Austin Powder, we begin with helping our customers choose the right product for the specific application. Products such as Austin Powder E-Star and Shock-Start Detonators, are critical – not only to achieve maximum environmental control but also for the best fragmentation results possible. Used with Austin Powder Emulex Series gassed emulsions, this level of control results in significant cost savings.

In an internationally competitive environment, having a reliable partner is particularly important. 

  • Speed during tunnel-driving is essential. Powerful and reliable explosives such as Emulex and detonators such as Shock-Star guarantee speed and cost-efficiency, as well as your safety.
  • Tunnel constructions are under a lot of pressure both before as well as during construction. With the support of our experts, we are able to minimize stresses such as toxic clouds. Our qualified and specialized chemists support you from the first removal of rock onwards.
  • The preparation of storage concepts including mobile storage of explosives as well as support in the authorization process is standard for us.
