Team Mixing Technologies was contracted to design, supply, and commission a pre-mix concrete batch plant at the portal of this irrigation tunnel. This batch plant produces shotcrete and concrete for tunnel lining. This plant featured a 4 yd³ Voeller pan mixer and is PLC controlled. The plant was commissioned by TMT personnel who also performed operator training on-site.

This project involves a 24 km tunnel in Los Andes spurs, in western Venezuela. The tunnel is to supply irrigation water from the Yacambu valley to the neighboring Quibor valley. The contrast between the lush jungle environment at Portal de Entrada and the dry desert climate at the other end, Portal Salida is remarkable.
