Founded and run by the LOVAT family, the company?s extensive experience, advanced technology and continued development provide the solutions for any tunnelling challenge on any project.
LOVAT?s international success is built on the foundation of innovation, efficient design management, manufacturing excellence and the guarantee of quality service. The company name is synonymous with outstanding achievements and contributions in the tunnelling industry.
The LOVAT story begins in the Veneto region of Italy and now spans the world. Richard?s father, great-grandfather, and uncles were all involved in the tunnelling industry. When Richard started, tunnelling was accomplished with very basic tools ? sledgehammers, picks and explosives. Over the years with each new experience, Richard developed new and innovative excavating methods to meet ever more demanding site conditions. Between 1963 and 1972 he built fourteen TBMs under the name "Richard's Machinery & Repair Ltd.". Afterwards the company was renamed "Lovat Tunnelling Equipment Inc.", now known as LOVAT.
Following in the family tradition is Richard?s son, Rick, who now manages the company and is responsible for all daily operations.
To date the company has built over 230 TBMs, performed more than 150 full refurbishments for more than 400 tunnelling projects world-wide. LOVAT machines have excavated more than 1, 500, 000 m of tunnel.
