TBM travels to Australia

Snowy Hydro Limited said its tunnel boring machine (TBM) 1 is on its way to Australia following factory acceptance testing.

At 205 m long and 11 m in diameter, the TBM is considered large by global standards and has been designed specifically to tunnel on an incline.

In a social media post, Snowy Hydro Limited has shared images of the TBM’s construction, thanking Herrenknecht AG for the kit.
