Fagioli Recovering TBM Sections from Silvertown Tunnel Project

The scope of work for Fagioli was to provide contract lifting services for the assembly, installation and final recovery activities of a 11.91m Tunnel Boring Machine (TBM) used for the main drilling operations on site for the construction of the new Silvertown Tunnel under the River Thames in London.

Last year Fagioli executed the first phase of the project for the assembly and mounting operations of  the TMB  at an elevation of -25m from ground level by means of a Liebherr LR1600 crane.

Now, after the main tunnelling works for Transport for London’s (TfL’s) Silvertown Tunnel have been completed, Fagioli is completing the recovery of the TBM sections with parts weighing up to 260 ton.

A challenging and very satisfying project!
