Tunnel Saz Machine (TSM) made Micro TBM, ASM 1000, managed to complete its first drive successfully in the challenging geological condition of Ahwaz city, establishing the sewage line.
The machine as the latest TSM manufacturing product, was designed and manufactured within three months to face the harsh geological conditions of the project.
According to IRNA, the operational phase of the sewage line of Ahwaz got started a year ago, the monetary budget was funded by the Iranian National Funds for Development.
The ASM 1000 is known as the first mechanized machine to fulfill the job of micro-tunneling in complicated geotechnical conditions prevailing in Ahwaz where the marly formations are cumbersome. Hopefully, the current improvement by Tunnel Saz Machine will put an end to the failures of the past in taking advantage of the Mechanized Machines in this city and to make the unpleasant memories of the local officials and authorities sink into oblivion.
The establishment of 14 km of sewage line in Ahwaz has been sealed to be accomplished, for the time being, parts are under construction. In the event of successful completion of the current project, it will be expanded to stretch the sewage line to other neighborhoods within the city to maintain a stable sewage system of Ahwaz Megacity.
