Nepal's first TBM-driven tunnel was a success by any standard: The Robbins Double Shield machine bored up to 1,200 meters a month and finished the Bheri Babai Diversion Multipurpose Project nearly a year early. But how were crews able to bore so quickly? Why was this project built in a remote area of Nepal? And what made the contractor and owner ultimately decide to use a TBM for the first time?
Listen in on our conversation with Brad Grothen P.E., Robbins Technical Director, and Missy Isaman P.E., Robbins Project Engineer, as we discuss the challenges, lessons learned, and recommendations for future tunnels in mountainous geology. In this complimentary, 30-minute webinar we'll cover these topics and more. Join us for a live Q&A session at the end to get a thorough answer from our expert speakers.
