Robinson Company will host a webinar, covering all aspects of their progress, over 1.200m monthly, in the Himalayas. ‘Over 1,200 Meters a Month at Bheri Babai: TBM Excavation in Himalayan Geology’ will be held on August 13, 2020, 08:00 AM in Pacific Time (US and Canada), free of charge (for registration check https://robbinstbm.zoom.us/webinar/register/8715964819289/WN_qrgu09EhQVuxDWrKI2dhoA).
This course will discuss how the double shield TBM crossed the finish line of the Bheri Babai Diversion Multipurpose Project, one year ahead of schedule. Furthermore, Missy Isaman, Robbins Project Engineer, and Brad Grothen P.E., Robbins Technical Director, will answer various questions, including how tunnel workers managed to excavate through Himalayan geology. What motive caused a Tunnel Boring Machine drive in such a remote place in Nepal.
During 30-minute speakers will clarify more about the ups and downs of boring through mountains, their unique experiences, guidance, and insight for their audience.
