Recently, Pajkov Vir Tunnel of Montenegro Bar-Boljare Highway was successfully completed. Montenegro’s National TV delivered an exclusive report toward XCMG XTR260 boom-type roadheader.
Exclusive Interview of Montenegro National TV
It’s reported that Montenegro Bar-Boljare Highway, a significant cooperation project between China and Central and Eastern Europe, connects Bar, a city in the South Montenegro and Boljare, a city in the North Montenegro. It is the first highway of this country. After completion, it will be included as a part of international road transportation network, connecting many countries in the Central Europe. This is of great significance to promote the economic development of Montenegro as a whole.
Montenegro National TV took an exclusive interview and report toward XTR260 boom-type roadheader
At present, Pajkov Vir Tunnel‘s right and left cave are tunneled. It’s in flysch surrounding rock stratum. Bedding is developed and the rock is shallowly buried and in unsymmetrical pressure. XCMG XTR260 boom-type roadheader is employed all through the construction, which serves for the 6th tunnel under construction and the 4th tunnel which has completed in Montenegro Bar-Boljare Highway Project.
XCMG roadheader in Montenegro Bar-Boljare Highway Construction
The fourth section of Bar-Boljare Highway was mostly made in flysch with maximum compression strength of about 50Mpa. Now, the excavating pace has quickened up to 1.5m/ h from 0.8m/h. It’s estimated to slash the construction time by 9 months
On August 26th 2017, Jabuka Tunnel of Montenegro Bar-Boljare Highway was successfully tunneled through
Due to the complicated Montenegro blasting process and the fact that it must be operated by local blaster, other sections’ progress was severely impeded. However, XCMG’s boom-type roadheader requires no initiating explosive device and reduces the safety risk and progress delay risk. This equipment only needs 2 persons for all operation. It can reduce 13 working staff per cave excavation per shift. This boom-type roadheader also greatly reduces the disturbance to surrounding rock. Average linear over-excavation can reduce from traditional 20 cm to 5 cm, which is estimated to save about € 350 per linear meter for sprayed concrete cost for this single term.
XCMG’s XTR260 Rewarded as “Star Machine in Montenegro Bar-Boljare Highway”
XCMG XTR260 boom-type roadheader, applied by the Project Department of Montenegro Bar-Boljare Highway of CCCC Tunnel Engineering Company, examined and reviewed by General Manager Department, was rewarded as “Star Machine of Bar-Boljare Highway” for its advantage of “Leading Technology, Reliable Quality and Golden Service”.
