The future of the shotcrete solutions space is bright, according to longtime expert Fabian Erismann. According to him, societal trends all but guarantee opportunities for companies in the space with the right solutions, services and technology.
Take, for example, the trend in electrification of transportation, something that will require massive amounts of metals the reserves of which are in general decline at the world’s biggest pits. “When we talk about the energy revolution, this will not be possible without large future underground projects that mine for gold and nickel and copper, and all these other metals that are used for the energy revolution,” Erismann said. “We are very positive not only for the overall underground construction industry but particularly for mining.”
