,,PE of Water Supply of Coastal Region of Montenegro" showed its trust to the construction company Gemax from Belgrade on the Montenegro Sustainable Tourism Development Project, to perform pipe laying work on the most complicated part of route of the main pipeline Ø 1000 under the Moraca river (two crossings), under highway and railway, as well as on the part under bottom of the Sladar lake.

Reputation of the company Gemax, as the leader in the field of work execution on the most complicated facilities of civil engineering and building construction in Serbia, is built upon twenty years of experience and numerous successfully completed projects.

Everyday ability to meet new chalenges and openness for innovations and new technologies of work, together with achievment of the highest quality, lead to cooperation with the company "Sonntag" from Germany, specialized for pipe-jacking. "Sonntag" is the world leader in this field and currently performs this type of work in 6 European states.

The system of microtunneling is performed with a special mole, after conctruction of  a MANHOLE using a special method on the planned depth of 1.5 to 20 m under the bottom of rivers, or foundations of settlements. Microtunneling technology is the latest solution for pipeline laying under rivers, settlements and swamps for all kinds of pipelines Ø 200 - 3600 mm, including canalization and drinking water pipelines.

This system is the safest and most profitable solution of  performing all installations under rivers, swamps and settlements.
