CIFA ELK shotcrete machine commissioned to AVAX S.A., Greece

This is the 7th CIFA shotcrete machine added to the company’s fleet and it will be involved in the 285 mio € Bralos-Amfissa road project that is part of the diagonal axis Lamia-Itea-Antirrio. The project aims to significantly improve road safety along this axis and reduce the travel time from Lamia to Antirrio.

The ELK is the latest evolution of the CIFA CSS-series of concrete spraying equipment. Its key distinguishing features are the possibility of spraying concrete both with diesel and electric power, its overall compactness in driving configuration and the great versatility offered by its boom in terms of reachable area.


Thanks to the three-section, “Z” – folding concept, the ELK boom gives the flexibility to operate in a versatile, safe manner in any kind of tunnel. The boom turret has a double slewing ring for horizontal and vertical boom rotation and can shift along the truck’s longitudinal axis to extend the working surface and reduce truck movements. Moreover, the third element of the boom is telescopic. The boom is driven by a radio remote control.


The ELK truck is an off-road vehicle with hydrostatic transmission. It features four-wheel drive (4WD) four-wheel steering (4WS) with three steering modes and two mechanical speeds.  The machines are equipped with a ROPS-FOPS closed driving cab. The driving seat can be tilted 180°.
