Karl-Heinz Schnedl
Karl-Heinz SchnedlManaging Director
Mr. Karl is a renowned Tunneling Expert having practiced in over ten countries in the World with over 37 years of experience. To many, he is an inspiration, an enigma, and most of all, a teacher who readily shares his knowledge and skills in tunneling.

Being among the first engineers tasked with the construction of the Kiambere Hydro Power plant in 1984, Mr. Karl with the team successfully completed the project which has become a landmark in HEP power generation in Kenya. Later He would participate in many other projects that have since been key references of construction in Kenya.

Mr. Karl would later on, with the intuition of utilizing underground space and moving construction a notch higher, introduce a trenchless pipe laying machine in 1992 and become an enigma, where today’s trenchless activities draw inspiration from.

Minex Micro Tunneling has now been a leader in the Trenchless industry for the past 30 years and continues to exploit different fields of construction under the Leadership of Mr. Karl.
