Buyers Guide


The types of transportation systems most suited to any tunnel are related to its length. If the tunnel is short, there is little need for manriding, and materials can be moved by hand or with the muck haulage equipment. A long tunnel will require some form of manrider, and special materials may need a dedicated carrier to avoid interruption of production or damage during transport. Cost and disruption factors have become increasingly important in recent years, and there has been a trend towards modular systems that provide a multi-function role. For instance, a locomotive can provide a manriding facility without interfering with its prime function as a haulage unit. Other, more complex, systems provide versatile and sophisticated cassette units that can be rapidly mounted on the prime mover. Also required for transport in tunnels are conveyors, hoists, cranes, loaders, carriers, locomotives and rolling stock, and all manner of railbound, monorail, and trackless equipment.

Our facilities, employees, core competencies, know-how, and on-going investment in our business, allow us to continually update our technology so that we can offer to Customers our own solution for CONTINUOUS CONVEYOR.

It is globally recognized as the most efficient and effective solution for the handling of material extracted by tunnel boring machine (TBM). This equipment is specifically engineered to smoothly handle the transport of materials from the tunnel excavation site to the surface and beyond. Large Belt Storage capacity increases TBM utilization, reduces construction time and results in lower costs. The continuous handling of higher tonnages of muck and spoil is a visible, real time benefit.
