The micro system can push standard 3m long x DN1800 concrete pipes and can be expanded to work with 3m long x DN2000 pipes. The order with Terratec includes supply of the shield, the main jacking station, intermediate jacking stations, the slurry transport system, a digital guidance system and a control container with the operation panel and power pack.

The system was designed by Terratec at its engineering centre in Australia for production and assembly at the company’s plant in Guangzhou with key components coming mainly from Australia and Japan.

The machines are to bore in the typical Bangkok soil composed of clay, stiff clay and very stiff clay. Some state-of-the art features include a cone crusher integrated into the cutterhead structure, the Enzan-Terratec laser guidance system and data recorder and remote access for the complete tunnelling system.
