The new U-Bahn line in Hamburg, Germany, is a key link in the development of the HafenCity area. The U4 passes under the river Elbe and the Alster basin.
Water above and around
Given the delicate location, Hamburger Hochbahn AG and the tunnel design firm, Obermeyer Planen + Beraten GmbH, decided to go for a proven sealing solution.
Efficient water barrier
Together, they specified Roxtec cable penetration seals to handle the extreme demands for water-tightness, both during construction and in the future.
