First attendance of hyperTunnel at the World Tunneling Congress (WTC) in Copenhagen will be seen next month.
Launching its method to transform underground construction at the same event in 2021, the UK start-up is also going to return to the British Tunneling Society (BTS) Conference & Exhibition in London on October 11-12.
A working demonstration of a section of hyperTunnel robot-led swarm construction platform will be presented at both shows. Visitors will be able to see hyperBots working from within an underground pipe to conduct their various programmed tasks as part of a grid. As the company claims, this method has been presented in order to be faster, safer, more economical, and more environmentally friendly compared to current techniques, while using this method complete structures are constructed according to a digital twin.
According to Jeremy Hammond, co-CEO and co-founder: “Our attendance at both shows reflects widespread industry acceptance of and interest in hyperTunnel’s solutions, from around the world. There is a genuine awakening going on in relation to the use of robots, digital twins, and AI in construction. It’s not exclusive territory to hyperTunnel of course, but our advanced integrated package is now established as offering what the tunneling and construction industries are aiming for in many existing and new applications.”
Considering new investments, industry partnerships, and the completion of a full-size pilot tunnel in the UK, hyperTunnel has grown remarkably over the past 12 months.
In order to support business expansion and further progress of the hyperTunnel method in practical situations, hyperTunnel received a financial investment from Vinci in June 2022. Additionally, a €1.88m budget has been awarded by the European Innovation Council to identify, develop and scale up breakthrough technologies and innovations.
Copenhagen will be the host of WTC from September 2-8. For more information, please click here.
