Unique project

 PE SVITEKS has started a unique project in Pervomayskyi open pit of PJSC Central Ore Mining and Processing Plant in spring 2014. While implementing this project, steel pipes are installed ahead of the tunnel face arranged like an umbrella or canopy around excavation line. The canopy stabilizes and protects the ceiling and the face of the tunnel increasing load bearing capacity of the ground. Thanks to the rigidity of steel pipes, distribution of loads will be improved and the critical spot will be moved further ahead of the working face. As a result, a reinforced concrete protective screen is created and construction works go on under this screen.
