6.44m diameter EPB TBM for Bangkok Metro Blue Line Extension, Thailand

With a major boom in infrastructure development including transport infrastructure to help with traffic decongestion, the urban development authority is focusing more on the expansion of underground infrastructure. Specifically, the focus has been placed on the construction of a metro rail system to meet the large demand for efficient means of transport. In order to expedite the construction work and with minimal inconvenience to the public, large numbers of TBMs are being deployed to carry out the underground construction work, which had contributed to the growth of the TBM market.

Incorporated in 1990, TERRATEC is the world-renowned Australian designer and manufacturer of cutting edge Tunnel Boring Machines, Raise Boring Machines and other custom-made products for tunnelling and mining applications for all ground conditions.

Hard Rock TBMs

  • Open TBM: The most traditional among the Hard Rock TBMs period. It's the fastest and most effective in competent ground.
  • Double Shield TBMs: A good compromise for those rock formations containing unstable or faulty zones.
  • Single Shied TBMs: The solution when rock strength is weak and tunnel walls cannot react against the action of the Gripper Pads.

TDR Series Raise Boring Machine to construct shafts up to 2.4m in diameter
  • Earth Pressure Balance Machine (EPB): These machines evacuate the material through a screw conveyor with full control of the pressure in the excavation front.
  • Slurry Shield: Suitable for excavating soils with high water content and high water/earth pressure presence.

Microtunnelling (MTBMs)

Small Boring Machines which do not require the presence of any operator inside the tunnel and is ideal for sewer or power supply jobs in the more congested parts of the cities.

Raise Boring Machines (RBMs)

Standard Raise-Boring Machines (TR Series) which are used in mining and civil construction to excavate large diameter single pass (1-6 meters) vertical or inclined shafts in hard rock. The Down-Reaming Machines and Universal Borers round off the product range. The purpose of the shaft can be for ventilation, ore passes or access ways in the mines and for construction of the Race Shafts and Surge Shafts in Hydro Projects.
