CF&S with Transport of Tunnel Boring Machine by Rail
20th December 2019
CF&S Estonia have recently successfully handled a project to Uzbekistan for the Tashkent Metro Line Extension.
Felikss Petrovskis at CF&S comments; "This project was a great challenge - the transportation of a tunnel boring machine arriving by RORO vessel to Paldiski South Harbour and carried on by railway to Tashkent in Uzbekistan. The machine is used to excavate tunnels with a circular cross section through a variety of soil and rock layers. The tunnelling machine can lay a tunnel and at the same time install a concrete frame."
"In spite of unfavourable weather conditions, an extremely tight time schedule and the difficult specifics of the cargo, we handled the project in the best way. We provided 12 of our own special 80' railway platforms to transport the cargo from the Esteve Terminal directly to its final destination. To ensure the most efficient and safe loading process, we also invited engineers who prepared detailed cargo securing and loading schemes."
"CF&S is highly experienced in implementing large-scale projects enabling us to provide complete logistics solutions and bring a variety of different projects to successful completion."
