First microtunnel of 2018 completed in Bahrain

Joseph Gallagher are proud to announce we have successfully installed our first microtunnel of 2018 in Bahrain, using one of our Iseki TBM’s.

The 35 metres of 600mm steel pipe runs underneath a road in coastal conditions, forming part of a new sewer network. Despite encountering some unexpected ground conditions the brand new TCS 600 Rock machine dealt extremely well with the rock, boulder and sand interface.

This successful completion further demonstrates our team’s capabilities at the forefront of microtunnelling technology in the Middle East.
