Pumping off of the water arising during the underground tunnel heading.
Use of submersible pumps of type KTZ32.2, these being operated in permanent snore mode (dry running) during the complete construction period. This application is no problem for the pump thanks to the inhouse developed oil distributor in combination with the rotating mechanical seal, which is located completely internally.
