The existing TBM had several refits over the years. Thanks to all the past work, the machine was cluttered and left excess unused pieces in the way. Since space inside of a 66” machine is so limited, we took extra care to simplify the machine.
As this machine had a few demanding projects on the horizon, we decided to overhaul the entire machine from the ground up as opposed to making minor modifications. This meant all new electrical systems, hydraulic systems, and a new cutting head. The result was nearly an entirely new machine ready to cut through rock.
