Welcome to the website of the Institute of Geomechanics GmbH Leipzig

The IfG GmbH is one of the world-wide leading companies for all geomechanical questions while using of salt formation, e.g. salt mining, storage and waste disposal projects.

With our interdisciplinary aligned work area of numerical and experimental geomechanic as well as the geotechnical in situ field measurements we realize the required business activities.

In addition, we are also active in areas of rock and tunnel construction, special heavy construction and geo-measurements.

We have in each of these areas many years of experience and offer innovative and qualified services, and research. This means a higher level of competence and professional suitability for you!
