An important project was carried out for the construction of the natural tunnel on the SS640 Agrigento-Caltanissetta
The work involved the production of 36,000 concrete segments, equal to 4,000 rings corresponding to a total of 210,000 cubic metres of concrete.
The tunnel ring has an outer diameter of 14.65 m and an inner diameter of 13.45 m and consists of 8 segments plus a key segment.
Production was carried out with a specific carousel system consisting of 4 complete sets of formworks distributed along the production line and 2 forced steam curing lines.
The daily production was 72 segments, 8 complete tunnel rings equal to over 400 m3 of concrete.
The entire order was carried out in about 30 months.
This production was carried out with CE marking certified by ICMQ.

SICEP produces prestressed reinforced concrete bridge beams for the construction of road and railway decks
The types range from traditional beams with a double T section, with a wide upper and/or lower wing, to large box beams for railway decks.
The plant’s flexibility and production capacity allow it to produce almost any type of beam.
