Welcome to H+E Logistik.
H+E Logistik supplies tunnel conveyor belt systems, back-up conveyors for tunnel boring machines and conveying systems for the mining and construction industry, the ports and harbor sector, and for all companies which have a lot to move.
London ist preparing for a massive undertaking of the cities transit network. This particular transit project will see the length of the underground expand to 21 km, a project that will only create new Tube stops but modernize existing ones.
This project will see two parallel running Tunnels boring machines (TBM) with a diameter of 6,2 meters in action. The renovation will increase the capacity of the old tunnels, allowing new connection stations to be made.
The tunneling project from Royal Oak to Farringdon Station will see H + E's conveyor system being used in partnership with a TBM from Herrenknecht. This specific TBM used will have a diameter of 7,08 meters.
Every tunnel created will have a lenght of 6,400 meters and be at least 400 meters in radius. Production of the TBM will start in early 2012 and see completion in 2015. The conveyor belt that is responsible for removing the excavated "muck" and "earth" will all be designed und supplied by H + E.
H + E not only has the challenge of transporting and marinating heavy machinery, they will also be faced with the task of working in an extremely narrow working environment.
Daughter Company founded in the USA
In the every increasing globalization of the world, H + E has taken the opportunity to establish a daughter company in North America. H + E Logistics USA Inc. was proud to launch in May of 2011 with scenic Seattle, Washington becoming the headquarters base.
Herrenknecht Tunneling Systems (HTC) Seattle infrastructure will become home to H + E USA. HTC is the sister company of Herrenknecht AG.
Completely owned and operated by H + E Logistik GmbH, H + E USA has entered the US market with full support by H + E Germany. Both locations will work in full co-operation in an effort to develop the US based company to its fullest potential. H + E Logistik GmbH ist located in Bochum.
The West Island extension of he underground Mass Transit Railway (MTR) located in Hong Kong, from Sheung Wan to Kennedy Town, has been a complete success as the number of hourly riders reached 85.000.
Increased access for pedestrians, where over 90 per cent of locals can easily reach, the westward line has opened up new areas of the city's western district. This expansion will also work to reduce traffic, lower auto emissions and curtail noise disturbance.
The quality of the H + E provided conveyor system has proved to be a big reason as to the success of the Hong Kong MTR project. The final closing date is scheduled for 2014.
Home to one of the fastest and most comfortable public transit systems, the Prague Metro line will see H + E Logistik involved in the 6,2 KM expansion.
The specific subway line, which includes the Prague International airport as one of its stops, will see an expansion to include the northwestern areas of Prague, Czech Republic in an effort to strengthen the capital city's transit network.
The extension starts in Dejvická and will travel westward, incorporating stops at the Greater Prague Hospital and the University's Hospital in Motol. The end station is aimed to be the airport located in Prague's Ruzyné district.
H + E is proud to be part of this particular project, which is forecasted to be in operation until 2014 when it's scheduled to be completed.

Legacy Way (formerly Northern Link Road Tunnel) is a section of five kilometers underground toll road with a new four-lane highway. The project involves two bored tunnels carrying two lanes of traffic in each direction.
Legacy Way is the third of four toll tunnel highway projects to ease traffic congestion. This tunnel is linking the Western Freeway adjacent to the Brisbane Botanic Garden at Toowong with the Inner City Bypass (ICB) at Kelvin Grove.
Legacy Way would provide an underground motorway standard link between Brisbane’s western and inner northern suburbs, linking employment and growth areas. By completing the missing link in the motorway standard road network, Legacy Way would re-distribute through-traffic from local, suburban and arterial roads onto motorway-standard roads. It is expected to carry 34.200 vehicles a day when it opens and reduce travel time between the Centenary Bridge and the Inner City Bypass (ICB) by 70 %.
A section of the highway runs under some of Brisbane’s most exclusive communities and after the expected completion in February 2015 there will be created an underground highway, which forms an inner city ring road around Brisbane’s central business district.
More than two million tonnes of spoil will be removed during tunnel construction. For that H + E belt conveyers will be used to provide a safety and unproblematic transportation.
