XCMG gives underground space another possibility!

Since entering the flood season, continuous heavy rainfall has made many cities across China

Since entering the flood season, continuous heavy rainfall has made many cities across China appear ‘to be riding the wind and the waves’

In order to solve the problems associated with waterlogging, provinces and cities are gradually landing on the sponge city concept, ‘sucking up’ water during flooding and ‘spitting it out’ in periods of drought. To realise the benefits of this concept, XCMG has strengthened China’s technical capability developing a number of breakthrough products that have become an indispensable tool for creating sponge cities.

The biggest feature of sponge city is the laying of underground cable, but the current ground infrastructure is generally mature, and the application of XCMG horizontal directional drilling rigs and pipe jacking equipment enables the construction of various pipelines such as those crossing rivers, buildings, railways and highways without “cutting” the road surface. The application of XCMG’s trenchless equipment helps limit the impact on the city and its residents while making maximum use of underground space.

XCMG is the first manufacturer to develop micro-hard rock pipe jacking machine in China and has the only micro-pipe jacking machine capable of hard rock (300MPa) geological construction in the country. The XCMG XDN500HL, a small calibre pipe laying machine launched for the rain and pollution diversion reconstruction project in South China, has reached an internationally advanced level of performance and is well suited to current market demands.

XCMG horizontal directional drilling rigs, which can also carry out trenchless pipe laying operations, lead the industry in the domestic market due to their high construction efficiency. The company also currently has the world’s largest tonnage horizontal directional drilling rig the XZ13600. As the largest domestic trenchless equipment manufacturer, XCMG has also maintained a strong growth momentum overseas.

XCMG horizontal directional drilling rigs and pipe jacking machines have participated in the construction of major pipeline projects at home and abroad, often outperforming international brands with their core strength.

XCMG’s large tonnage horizontal directional drilling rig, the XZ5000, has worked for 500 hours without any issues in Malaysia’s largest submarine cable crossing project, creating history for trenchless products in power engineering crossings.

The XCMG XDN525 mud-water balancing pipe jack is also thriving abroad helping deliver the Kuala Lumpur sewage treatment project and demonstrating and impressively high efficiency of 15m per day.

It is believed that with the state’s management of underground pipe network construction and the continuous innovation and improvement of XCMG trenchless technologies, waterlogging into the sea will no longer be the city’s chronic disease.
