Mighty Breakthrough for Europe's biggest Tunnel Boring Machine in Italy

 

In Italy, the largest tunnel boring machine ever used in Europe successfully completed its drive in June. The supersize borer (Earth Pressure Balance Shield, diameter 15.87 m) made by Herrenknecht in Schwanau, Baden/Southern Germany, dug 7.5 km of highway tunnel through the Apennines. In cooperation with the customer, Herrenknecht designed a new system for the machine, to protect particularly the site crew from the expected methane gas deposits in the ground.

Tunnel Boring Machine Charlotte completes Connection Tunnel Drive in London


The super sewer became one step closer to cleaning up the River Thames as tunnelling machine Charlotte completed her journey to Fulham, finishing a vital connection tunnel beneath the river.


The 1.1 km connection tunnel, created at a depth of around 30 m, will take sewage overflows from King George’s Park into the main 25 km tunnel at Carnwath Road, where it will be transferred to east London for treatment instead of polluting London's waterway.

Charlotte is one of the project’s smaller Tunnel Boring Machines (TBM), measuring three metres wide and more than 70 m long and is named after suffragist Charlotte Despard. She was the first to break through the ground to complete a section of tunnel for London’s new super sewer in October.

Having dug the 500 m southern section of the Frogmore Connection Tunnel, from Dormay Street to King George’s Park, she was then hoisted from the shaft, taken back to Dormay Street and put back into the ground to tunnel the final 600 m to Carnwarth Road.

With the tunnelling now complete, Ciaran McQuaid, Project Manager Shafts and Tunnels, for the western section of the project said: “It’s amazing to see Charlotte finally through into the Carnwath Road reception chamber and a big congratulations to the team for all their hard work.

‘This will probably be the end of my 12 year connection with TBM Charlotte from being a Shift Engineer on her back in 2008 on the Thames Water Ring Main Extension, watching her going through her remanufacturing ready for tunnelling on Frogmore Connection Tunnel and then completing her job in style yesterday. For a TBM that is turning 26 in November and has now completed six tunnel projects, she did a great job.’

An Alternative for Mineral Oil in Hydraulic SystemsAn Alternative for Mineral Oil in Hydraulic Systems
Mineral oil-free Hydraulic Fluids proving a national and international Success

Current developments pose a risk to our supply chains. Climate change, environment protection and occupational safety are increasingly taking centre stage. This paper presents one potential solution where mineral oil-based media can be replaced by water-based polymer fluids in hydraulic systems. This is one fairly simple way in which companies can contribute to workplace safety, environmental conservation and resource security....

How an IIoT Solution for Mining Machines can be successfully introduced into a Quarry OperationHow an IIoT Solution for Mining Machines can be successfully introduced into a Quarry Operation

Many mining companies still do not know whether they are ready to implement IIot projects for mobile mining machines – and things often stay this way until they try out digitalisation for themselves in an in-house pilot project. Sometimes it is enough simply to go for it and learn from the experience. But what is actually possible and how can ‘digital transformation’ be applied in-house? The conditions and measures needed for such a successful digital transformation are outlined below from the perspective of a tech company that supplies hardware and software solutions and also supports clients through the introduction and implementation process....
