Please tell me you are joking.

Either you know all the pertinent information seismic stresses, concrete thickness, machine weight..., formulas for calculating what you need. Or you need to contract someone who can do that job. Asking a group of internet strangers, without even giving them ANY useful information other than 6.5m, is insane!

The on-site civil or structural engineer will know what to do if they are competent.
