TBM & Tunneling

 

Prior to the Tunnel Boring Machine (TBM) operations DCN provides the complete package from civil engineering to dredging, dive support (under water welding/cutting, HP waterjetting), operations in bentonite, underwater concreting and other supporting activities. 

During TBM operations DCN provides support as well. As the head of the TBM is a hyperbaric environment were often maintenance/repair is required, our specalist hyperbaric workers carry  out these activities with our developed standard operating procedures and supporting equiment.
