The photo above, taken on January 3, shows the staff prepares for packaging the machine. On the same day, the first batch of tunnel interchangeable dual-mode shield machines developed by the Sunward Intelligent’s joint venture- the China Railway Sunward, were ready to be delivered from Changsha. Its technological level takes the lead in the industry, and it can quickly switch between two tunneling modes, which can dig both soft ground layer and super hard rock formation. The equipment is tailor-made for the Shenzhen Metro by the China Railway Sunward. It will be used in the construction of the Shenzhen Metro Line 13 involving stations ranging from Liuxiandong Station to Baimang Station. The total length of the machine is 96 meters, with a total weight of about 650 tons and the excavation diameter of 6.98 meters. It will arrive at Shenzhen before January 10.
