SVCW’s contractor partner, Barnard-Bessac Joint Venture (BBJV), continued to make significant and safe tunneling progress with Salus, the Tunnel Boring Machine (TBM).
With Salus due to arrive at the Front of Plant (FoP), BBJV and SPJV are working closely to coordinate Salus’ arrival and break in. Within the completed tunnel from Salus’ first tunnel drive, BBJV has been installing segments of the Fiberglass Reinforced Plastic (FRP) carrier pipe, which will carry the raw wastewater to the SVCW Treatment Plant. More than half of the 187 pipes have been installed in the tunnel. The remaining pipes are being stored on Inner Bair Island.
