​Master Builders Solutions presents innovative portfolio at World Tunnel Congress 2019

  • BASF as silver sponsor of ITA-AITES World Tunnel Congress 2019, taking place in Naples

  • Innovative product portfolio for safer tunneling

  • First digital objects for tunneling in BIM databases

BASF is once more silver sponsor of the ITA-AITES World Tunnel Congress, which will take place in Naples, Italy, on May 3-9, 2019.

At booth #50/51, the Master Builders Solutions experts will present innovative solutions for TBM, sprayed concrete, injection, and waterproofing. “Digitalization is one of the leading trends in tunneling. For waterproofing, we offer the objects in major BIM libraries, and we will continuously extend this offer”, said Wolfgang Aldrian, Principal Expert Tunneling and Mining at BASF. The digital content is free to download for the development of BIM projects. Building Information Models provide specification and installation information along with sustainability data, geometry and technical requirements.

BASF will again offer MasterSprayer, a 3D shotcrete application using a simulator whereby stand visitors will be able to spray concrete for tunnel rock support. The simulator, designed by Edvirt, consists of the actual robot controller and a virtual reality headset with which the user can see the application in 3D.
