Are we SMART enough?
As a company based in Malaysia, we are proud to be a part of a significant Malaysian based project; The SMART Tunnel!
To dig a tunnel about 10km long, two units of Herrenknecht’s TBM were used. As the project came to a close, the TBM parts needed to be delivered back to Germany. With our liaising partners in Germany, we handled the freight and logistical requirements for this delivery.
With such a heavy weighted cargo, multiaxles were used to transport these parts from the heart of K.L. city centre to Port Klang.
There were eight pieces of Shield Segments, each weighing between 55 to 75 metric tons and a Cutter Wheel Center weighting at 117 tons being the heaviest of the lot.
To minimize freight costs, the Slurry Pump Equipment were to be transported via containerized vessels.
The SMART Tunnel is a storm drainage and road structure in K.L. Malaysia and major national project. It is the longest stormwater tunnel in Asia and the second longest in Asia, measuring 9.7 km.
