Continuing its strong representation within the tunnelling industry, Optimas’ Tunnel Division was present at the STUVA Conference 2017 in Stuttgart, taking the opportunity to touch base with contractors and designers in the region. A regular at STUVA events for the last decade, Optimas displayed a multitude of its innovative Sofrasar pre-cast tunnel fastening solutions, all of which are specifically designed to streamline pre-cast concrete tunnel construction.

STUVA events take place bi-annually, and this year the conference saw great attendance from luminaries in the industry domestically and worldwide. Typically, the event combines a physical exhibition and a conference, providing an ideal forum to discuss and showcase the progress taking place regarding projects and products in the sector. As a leading supplier of fasteners for pre-cast tunnelling applications, it was an event Optimas was not going to miss.

Christophe Delus, Director at Optimas’ Tunnel Division, spoke positively on the experience: “This year we had the chance to catch up with a number of large contractors in the region. We spoke to Hochtief, Implenia, Max Bögl, Wayss & Freytag plus Züblin-Strabag who are based in Germany, as well as Marti from Switzerland and Porr from Austria. We operate in a highly specialised and technically proficient sector, so being able to transmit information freely, face-to-face is of great value to our business and the industry as a whole.”

On stand, Optimas showcased a selection from its popular Sofrasar range including bespoke and standard bolting systems, dowel systems, centring systems and shear dowels, grout-lift sockets, guiding rods and packers plus precast accessories and security systems. The business offers a comprehensive design and engineering capability, providing the capacity to originate and deliver optimum fastening solutions, as well as associated specialist equipment and machinery. Ultimately, this approach means contractors have access to industry leading solutions to suit specific tunnelling projects with added value.
