China delivers giant rock tunnel boring machine to Georgia
A giant hard rock tunnel boring machine made by China for Georgia has been delivered. The machine, with a diameter of 15.08 meters, a length of 182 meters and a weight of 3,900 tonnes, will be used in the construction of an expressway tunnel in Georgia.
US will soon say it's a national security threat

Another big brand from China. Just like their high speed train world famous. China is advancing so fast really scared the hell out of America. China is just too powerful for America to handle.
China is a huge Elephant, US can't swallow it easily
We India also bought a few of them from China. A great machine only China could made at this price
I wish you would dig under the Himalayan Mountains a tunnel for the people of the future to walk from one side to the other
they are now officially competitor with Germany on this kind of boring machine. Is it equally good compared to product of Germany, can share your experience if you have used both ?. In Australia they use the one from Germany as current trade war is happening between Au and China. Some projects like Snowy hydro in new south wales and melbourne underground railway tunnel is being drilled
You are such an intelligent person to not be brainwashed by propagandas presented by medias
Good job India, I bet you build some amazing projects
@Sanga Good for the Australians to buy German boring machines, as long as they can afford the money on maintenance and the time to get repair parts.

Without Anglo American interfering in India domestic affairs, India can do what China can. Just a matter of a little bit of peaceful time will do.
will it fall apart and last for at least one year?
@Mynah Bird , We imported the machine from China in 2016, and it is working very well. I don't heard any problem with it.
A fair thought from non brainwashed Indian...
China adapts continuously to changing environment. That’s why they are so successful.
TBM once only affordable to a very few wealthy countries is now affordable to all thanks to made in China !
Great china helping other countries in development.

China's building the world.
China promises and delivers. US lies and seeks excuses
China becomes a real leader in the world.
China leads the way by example! More action less talk!
Go China, go! And greatings to Georgians!

Beautifully engineered. Truly thrilled
Actually, I preferred the high quality ones, made in the United States even though it's 4 times more expensive.
TBM machines used to be very expensive. Now they are much more affordable since China is producing and using TBMs in a huge scale. Many people know that China is building a lot of high-speed railways ( more than 4000 km of new high-speed railways were put into operation in 2019 alone. ), China is building subways crazily. 968 km of new subway lines were added in China in 2019. I believe that New York metro system (the longest one in US) will be less than the 10th city in China by the length of subway lines in less than 5 years
This is a significant development.....this is one complicated piece of hardware
No one can't stop china
Hospital machines cloth machines agriculture machines
China will deliver one to the moon, Mars for underground tunnels
China unstoppable. Keep rise rise and rise
Wow look at that.
That assembly plant is impressively clean and well organized. In the United States it would be filthy and dark and filled with bitter angry drugged American workers Oh, and for some weird reason, there would be American flags all over the place.
West ptopaganda : china stole it from india
Salute to chinese genius people
The tunnel boring machines were dominated by american, japanese and german manufacturers. Their machines were expensive, each one selling in excess of $120 million. But once china 's tbm come out, they are selling at 2/3 of the price to benefit the world.
Why isn't It American Made!!!
I love china
Bangladesh got too
How many hours will that garbage from China last before breaking?
