CAOFEIDIAN China--2 Jun--PRNewswire/InfoQuest

XZ13600, the world's largest horizontal directional drill from XCMG, has made its debut assisting in the non-excavation construction of the China-Russia east-route natural gas pipeline, a major project from the "Belt and Road" Initiative that began operations in December, 2019.

The China-Russia east-route natural gas pipeline is setting new milestones for energy cooperation between the two countries. The project is first to adopt the large 1,422mm caliber pipeline and will be the largest long-distance natural gas pipeline in the world when completed. It will supply natural gas to China's northeast, Bohai Rim and Yangtze River Delta regions and is also the first pipeline in Chinese history to achieve full localization of key equipment and core control systems.

"The XZ13600 has been essential during the construction of the pipeline, as the largest tonnage horizontal drill in the world, with a super high push-pull force of 13600kN from multiple engines, it has ensured high efficiency of power output in throughout multiple stages of the project," said Kong Qinghua, General Manager of   XCMG Foundation Construction Machinery Business Division.

The XZ13600 assisted in the 750-meter crossing project of Shuanglong River in Caofeidian, Hebei Province, which is located on the coast with highly mineralized groundwater and uneven stratum. The farming zone and salt field each needed to be   protected to avoid damaging the environment, while the large-diameter reaming, long-distance crossing and complicated coastal terrain all put strict demands on the equipment. The XZ13600 was able to complete the crossing in two weeks and moved on to the 1,650-meter natural gas pipeline construction project.

"XCMG's large-scale intelligent equipment including the XZ3600, XZ5000 and XZ6600 are all participating in the construction of the China-Russia east-route natural gas pipeline, Rizhao-Puyang-Luoyang crude oil pipeline and Qingdao-Nanjing gas pipeline network. Meanwhile, our medium and large tonnage horizontal directional drills are providing more solutions to ensure the strategic allocation of oil and natural gas resources," said Kong.
