Rob Carr takes delivery of new microtunnelling machines

AVN1800 the newest microtunnelling technology purchased by Rob Carr.

Rob Carr has received its latest microtunnelling machine and is wasting no time in putting it to work.

The specialist tunnelling contractor has received its new AVN1800 microtunnelling machine from leading manufacturer and supplier Herrenknecht.

The AVN1800’s inaugural task will be a record 1002 metre curved drive beneath populated areas, road, rail, and river.

Once the hyperbaric chamber and the telescopic jacking station are commissioned to complete the package, the AVN1800 will begin tunnelling – scheduled to begin in March.

Part of the Soletanche Bachy group, Rob Carr is an award-winning contractor with a reputation for close collaboration with stakeholders on a range of challenging projects.

The company’s purchase of the AVN1800 is the latest investment in latest no-dig technology to maintain its position as a leader in the microtunnelling industry.
