Production rates continue at record breaking pace.
Following the successful installation of our first microtunnel of 2018, Joseph Gallagher Middle East have continued to progress at a productive rate.
We mobilised to the secondary location of our project in North Sitra last week, completing the second successful bore with record production times achieved on a welded steel sleeve; comprising of three welds and 18 metres in a single shift.
Huge congratulations to all the team; with a special mention for our new operator Supalerk Charernying on completing a difficult bore with mixed ground conditions accurately and in minimal time.
NRC Plant (part of the Joseph Gallagher Group) are sending two mini telescopic cranes out to Bahrain to support current microtunnelling projects. The advantage of using mini telescopic cranes is their very small footprint dimension. This makes them the ideal choice for supporting microtunnelling in Bahrain; particularly where Non Disruptive Road Crossing (NDRC) have restricted site areas due to the location of the critical roads.
A full package of spares will be accompanying each machine and onsite training of local personnel in Bahrain will take place upon their arrival.
