Those involved in the New Zealand tunnelling industry will be well aware of the plight of Alice, the world’s 10th largest TBM who has been an integral part of the Auckland Waterview connection.

Despite this video being set in Mexico, it made the top five list due to featuring 3M’s Scothkote 2400 liner, the technology that won the ASTT’s New Technology of the Year Award. The technology is currently at work in Melbourne as part a trial with Yarra Valley Water. View how the technology is utilised to extend the life of water mains through this case study video.
