Spatial research infrastructure

Short Description

The research@ZaB enables research at highest level not just on all challanges related to tunnel and underground constructions such as further development of existing and the generation of new underground tunneling methods, but also special research questions of all kinds of industry. It enables the use and testing of new materials and equipment as well as the use of alternative tunnel ventilation systems. There are also completely new perspectives for the entire safety technology, including the extinguishing systems integrated in the tunnel. Within the scope of a large-scale EU-project, also possibilities for underground energy storage are explored at Zentrum am Berg. As a consequence, Montanuniversity also provides a sustainable political impulse for Upper Styria and especially for the region of Eisenerz.
