In order to increase the amplitude of services offered, Ferpi has begun, in the year 2000, a new activity in the mining sector. The construction of access tunnels in mining sites and also other road tunnels, covering a wide range of underground work.
Afterwards, Ferpi has applied this knowledge to the public works sector. Excavating different types of tunnels for motorways and high-speed trains (AVE), with different excavation sections and different foundation materials. Works accomplished at the Spanish territory using blasting or mechanical methods or even the hydraulic hammer.
The underground mining department has also been strengthened with direct acquires of companies in this sector. Applying new infrastructures, using the same excavation and support methods than in the tunnels excavation, with similar tunnel sections to the road tunnel, allowed us to pass this important know-how and achieve better results, lower costs and faster than the regular mining service standard.
