Tunnel boring machines making a name in the Middle East 

The Middle East is set to name many TBMs, as the region is quickly becoming a key market for tunneling and drilling equipment – underground infrastructure is a growing industry, according to a 2015 report by the International Quality and Productivity Centre (IQPC). As the region continues to expand rapidly, in addition to development and urbanization schemes, key cities are becoming congested and infrastructure construction is increasing.
 
According to the IQPC, the UAE in particular is a critical driver of the industry’s growth, aiming to spend approximately $329 billion on a variety of national infrastructure and urban construction projects over the coming 15 years. Furthermore, the report claims that in 2013, the global tunneling and drilling equipment market was valued at $16.5 billion with a CAGR rate of 4.86% from 2009-2013, noting specifically that Asia Pacific remains the largest regional market. In order to meet the increasing demand on the existing infrastructure, in addition to addressing spatial limitations in developed cities and population growth, sustainable and energy-efficient cities have become a necessity. This has led to the construction of below-ground facilities like tunnels and underpasses.
 
Throughout the Middle East, the technical requirement for the use of tunnels for major infrastructure schemes is becoming more apparent, resulting in almost $300 billion being spent on proposed rail and water projects. These projects include the Riyadh Metro, the Makkah Metro, Dammam Metro, the Dubai Metro Extension, the Abu Dhabi Metro, Etihad Rail Phase 3 Extension, Oman National Railway project and the Dubai Strategic Sewerage Tunnels, to name just a few.
 
Case CX130D, CX160D Excavators Added to D Series
 
Models CX130D and CX160D have operating weights of 29,131 and 38,391 pounds, respectively. Engines use SCR technology without a DPF for Tier 4-Final compliance, with the CX130D using a 102 horsepower engine and the SC160D using a 112-horsepower engine.
 
Case says cycle times increase up to 5 percent over the predecessors, and fuel efficiency is up to 8 percent greater.
 
An electronically controlled pump, coupled with a larger control valve and sensors, enable the increase in cycle times. The Intelligent Hydraulic System provides the best use of hydraulic power and momentum, the company says. Four systems make up the Intelligent Hydraulic System: Boom Economy Control reduces rpm by using gravity during boom down and swing; Auto Economy Control lowers rpm during idle and automatically shuts down the engine after a preset idle time; Swing Relief Control reduces hydraulic power at the swing start; and Spool Stroke Control adjusts hydraulic pressure during digs.
 

Bobcat S595 Skid Steer

The 74-horsepower S595 skid steer loader is a 500-frame-size loader in the M Series. The vertical-lift loader has a 2,000-pound rated operating capacity. The pressurized cab minimizes dirt and dust in the operator environment. Auxiliary quick couplers mount directly to the front plate of the lift arm, and a guard bar extends in the front of the couple for uptime protection.

Bobcat S595 Specifications
Operating weight: 6,800 pounds
Rated operating capacity: 2,200 pounds
Lift height to hinge pin: 119 inches
 
 
FasTrac Concrete Mixer for Skid Steers
 
FasTrac Concrete Mixer converts any skid steer loader into a portable concrete mixer, the company says, allowing for a broad array of applications where speed is important and space may be limited.
The model 750 has a .75-cubic-yard capacity, while the model 500 has a .50-cubic-yard capacity. Contractors can pour on the left or right side, and the discharge chute extends up to 6 feet, providing more latitude when positioning the mixer. The pour gate seals to prevent water and material from escaping, which aids in self-leveling applications that involve a more fluid mix. A weight of 750 pounds makes it easier to stay under the skid steer loader’s lifting capacity when the mixer is full.
