The demand for high quality, durable shotcrete (sprayed concrete), produced with lower health risks and less negative influences on the environment is ever increasing. It is evident worldwide that there has been a dramatic conversion from dry to wet mix applications in underground construction, both in the tunnelling and mining sectors. Furthermore, the tunnelling industry has recognised the value of permanent sprayed concrete (shotcrete) tunnel linings, and single shell structures are becoming state-of-the-art, delivering substantial cost reduction and programme savings over conventional tunnel designs.
