MCT Italy has delivered a special concrete batch plant specifically designed to produce the concrete for the tunnel segments.
The Perth Forrestfield-Airport Link is being designed and constructed by the Salini Impregilo-NRW Joint Venture (SI-NRW) for the public Transport Authority of Western Australia, known as one of the most transformational public transport projects. The concrete batched by no. 2 Eurostar planetary mixer type EPM 3000/2000 has undergone a series of tests to ensure it meets the required standards for strength and durability.
The high quality concrete contains 40 kg of steel and 2 kg of polypropylene fibers per cubic meters dosed directly by gravity into the no. 2 mixer.
Very restricted tolerances lower than 1% on all dosed components assure the success on the most severe test, including fire testing held in Victoria, Australia.
The turn key project as concerns site organization, erection and lifting equipment has been really well organized by all the three parties involved: MCT Italy, MCT Italy local partner & the customer.
The batching plant confirms that our customers’ oriented solutions together with high quality components are the win-win cards to play.
