Züblin Spezialtiefbau has dispatched 10 of its Leibherr crawler cranes to facilitate construction of two roads beneath Egypt’s Suez Canal.

The infrastructure project, which is taking place near the city of Port Said, is being conducted on behalf of the Egyptian armed forces.

The Liebherr fleet includes four HS 885 HD units, two HS 875 HD models, an HS 855 HD, an HS 845 HD, an LR 1160, and an HS 8100 HD model.

The cranes are helping workers to erect slurry walls for the tunnels. The walls are approximately 1.2m wide, between 20m and 70m deep, and boast a combined surface area of 520,000m2.

Work on the tunnel’s walls commenced in September 2015. The project is scheduled to complete later this year.
