BLEND MX08 FOR MONTE CENERI

Blend Plants supplied six concrete agitators, transported by wagons trains, for the construction of the two-pipe tunnel (9.5 mi each) of Monte Ceneri in Switzerland. The first positive test, carried out on April 28, 2017, permitted  the construction start in July 2017. Due to the shape of the tunnel and the particular laying technique used, the MX08 agitator was specially developed by Blend for GCF in order to speed up casting operations, in compliance with the client’s safety requirements, ensuring quality concrete. The works, completed in 2020, significantly contribute to reduce travel times from Milan to Zurich.
