In this short article, we present the use of our Mori 45 IS drilling rig and its performance in the construction of the San Benedetto Tunnel in Merano, a major work realized through cutting-edge drilling techniques.

Technological advancement in the excavation of the San Benedetto Tunnel

The construction of the San Benedetto Tunnel in Merano represents an emblematic example of contemporary engineering excellence. This road infrastructure project, born out of the need to improve the road system and the connection between different areas, was made possible through the use of cutting-edge technologies that increased efficiency and safety on the construction site. Maximum attention was also paid to respect for the environment, the land and the community by adopting measures that minimized emissions and noise pollution.

URI’s contribution

URI also contributed to the construction of the tunnel by employing some of its rental fleet machines, including the Mori 45 IS hydraulic drilling rig, which has demonstrated outstanding performance at all stages of the project. Due to its reliability and technological innovation, the Mori 45 IS is definitely a benchmark in the drilling industry.

The Mori 45 IS in action

Thus, at the heart of this project we can find the Mori 45 IS, a hydraulic drilling machine designed riveting and holes with self-drilling bars. Its versatility and outstanding performance proved to be crucial during the tunnel construction.

Equipped with a state-of-the-art hydraulic circuit and powered by a high-performance motor, the Mori 45 IS offers unparalleled power and precision. Its compactness makes it the ideal choice for operating in restricted and hard-to-reach areas, while providing uncompromising maneuverability.

In addition, the Mori 45 IS’s customization option allows it to be tailored to the customer’s specific needs. With the remote control option, this machine becomes even more versatile, enabling precise and safe remote control.
