June 24, 2019


Abstract : China Railway Engineering Equipment Group Co., Ltd. (CREG) said it has rolled off the tunnel boring machine (TBM), which will be exported to Italy for a high-speed railway building project linking Milan and Verona.

ZHENGZHOU, June 24 (Xinhua) -- China Railway Engineering Equipment Group Co., Ltd. (CREG) said it has rolled off the tunnel boring machine (TBM), which will be exported to Italy for a high-speed railway building project linking Milan and Verona.

The machine, finished Saturday at its workshop in Zhengzhou, capital of central China's Henan Province, has a diameter of 10.03 meters and an overall length of 155 meters, and weighs 1,800 tonnes.

Franco Lombardi, president of the Italian Cepav Due joint venture, said that the construction project undertaker chose the CREG from a number of bidders for purchasing the TBM, as the Chinese firm was willing to provide customized solutions.

Zhang Zhiguo, deputy general manager of CREG, said that the export to Italy marked the company's entry into the European market, a milestone for CREG's export.

The CREG has participated in urban rail and drinking water projects in 19 countries and regions including Malaysia, Singapore, Algeria and the United Arab Emirates.
