Safety of unshielded tunnel boring machines and rodless shaft boring machines for rock

This standard is applicable to unshielded tunnel boring machines, TBMs, and rodless shaft boring machines, SBMs, and their towed or attached back-up equipment for driving tunnels or shafts in rock where the whole area is excavated in one or more steps by mechanical means. It specifies essential safety requirements for the design, construction and maintenance of such machines when used in non-explosive atmosphere together with the methods of verification. The standard specifies monitoring for hazardous atmospheres.  For TBMs and SBMs which are to be used continuously in explosive atmosphere, additional relevant standards alos apply.  This European Standard deals with all significant hazards pertinent to unshielded tunnel boring machines and rodless shaft boring machines for rock, when they are used as intended and under the conditions foreseen by the manufacturer (see clause 4). This European Standard specifies the appropriate technical measures to eliminate or reduce risks arising from the significant hazard.

Modification of 5.17
5.17 Fire protection
5.17.1 Fire extinguishing system

Power units, e.g. motors, transformers, hydraulic power packs and electrical cabinets for BMs generate fire

risks. Areas with concentrations of hydraulic hoses and electrical cables also constitute a risk. Typical reasons

for the increase of the fire risk and the origin of a fire are:
 short circuits in electric systems;
 connector faults;
 welding and cutting;
 hot surfaces;
 lack of lubrication;
 leakages in lines for lubricant or hydraulic fluids.
The construction of the BM shall minimize the hazard cause
