Mining and tunnel construction

Seeing light before the end of the tunnel

Mining and tunnel construction sites are among the most complex tasks in the infrastructure industry.

Our line of cables for mining and tunnel building includes flexible underground mining cables for stationary systems, reeling trailing drilling cables or cables for spray concrete vehicles, industrial cables for feeding electricity for underground tunnel ventilation or for lighting the construction site. You can count on Faber, your strong partner, for your tunnel construction supply needs.
