The TBM, made by China Railway Construction Heavy Industry Corp Ltd, has been rolled off the assembly line in Changsha, Hunan Province.

The machine with a diameter of 7.6 meters will be used in a water diversion project in SL.

The 27km project will be the longest hard rock tunneling project in the country and is expected to help with irrigation and alleviate droughts and floods.
