Holmatro hydaulics used in major public works project

Holmatro engineers have been tasked with supplying a PLC-controlled hydraulic synchronized positioning system for the new Schuman-Josaphat rail tunnel in Brussels.

“This is the first time that Holmatro is combining high-pressure hydraulics with digital control … The Holmatro system enables us to execute synchronized jacking of a rail casing in such a way that the concrete is not subject to unacceptable distortion. We currently have three casings jacked, and we are very pleased with the result.”
