Another Milestone in Doha Metro Project: Another important step has been recorded in Doha Metro Golden Line Project; The TBM carrying job which attracted great interest in the administration and partners was completed successfully.
The first of the two TBMs, which were responsible for the installation and operation of Sami Enis Arıoğlu and Enver Koç, was transported to the station where 6 February 2015 started the excavation after the installation of the shield was completed. The total 450 tonnes CPC shield was lifted using 10 support plate and hydraulic lifting systems, each of which was 2 tons, and loaded onto the SPMT (Self Propelled Modular Transporter) vehicle. The total 1 km route was crossed by a 6 slope at 3 hour. SPMT and hydraulic lifting systems were rented from Sarens. The said CPC is planned to start excavation on 21 February 2015.
We would like to congratulate all our employees for this operation and hope that the success of the entire project team will continue.
