1Project profile

This project is CPC Corporation, Taiwan second natural gas pipeline, which reduces Taichung natural gas operation interruption risk, it mainly crosses Taichung port channel, steel pipe material, diameter Ø660mm, crossing length 1449m.

Owner party: CPC Corporation, Taiwan

Construction party: Taiwan Resources Engineering Services Inc.

Construction unit: India TESPL company.

Project characteristic: Steel pipe Ø660mm×1449m directional drilling Taichung port channel sets the history record of 350T hdd machine Taiwan area trenchless.

Soil condition: silty fine sand with thin layer of clay, part backfill crushed stone, undersea quicksand strata etc.

Terrian condition: max. depth drilling port channel reaches 60m, cross breakwater. The channel water depth is 16m, width about 300m.

Construction difficulty: silty fine sand with thin layer of clay and undersea quick sand starta makes the hole difficult, pipe self-weight is above 300t, so in the process of project, using excavator to lift, pulley bracket etc. to reduce pie and ground friction resistance.
