Tunnel Mucking

ElectroMech has developed a unique and cost-effective bulk material handling system for extraction and disposal of overburden generated during construction of tunnels.

These systems can very efficiently remove overburden generated during construction of deep shafts with access tunnels as well as the overburden generated during the tunneling operations itself.

The typical heights of lift for such systems are in the range of 50m to 300m. The typical hoisting speeds are in the range of 30 m/min to 40 m/min. Several such systems designed, manufactured and commissioned by ElectroMech are being used by several major construction companies and are operational at various construction sites across the country.
