CBT: Switzerland’s Third Largest Railway Tunnel Projec...
The Ceneri Base Tunnel, the third largest railway tunnel project in Switzerland, is scheduled to become operational at the end of 2020.
In 2013 Blend Plants took part in an important project to create a plant for London Underground requirements.
Our mobile mixing plant for concrete production was chosen because of its new technological versatility: a special automated plant of 17 m length, 11 tones weight and 15 m3 capacity.
The project planning was followed with patience and passion because Blend Plants wanted to create a plant able to satisfy all customer requirements:
Safety is guaranteed using barriers (chains and doors) on board, fire extinguishers and signal lights that warn about plant passage in the tunnel.
This mobile mixing plant for concrete, on a single railway wagon, is powered by battery locomotives: this is the first and only one in the world to be powered by batteries. This system reduces fumes, hazards and improves workplace conditions and the health of workers.
From 16th May 2016 Blend plant has been working non-stop, producing form 8 m3 to 15 m3 of concrete per night.
