IPL Team Conducts Factory Acceptance Test

IPL TBM Factory Acceptance Test

Team members from Brierley Associates Corporation, Traylor Bros., and Tarrant Regional Water District visited the Herrenknecht Factory in Schwanau, Germany, for the Integrated Pipeline Project’s (IPL) tunnel boring machine factory acceptance test.

The Tarrant Regional Water District delivers water to over 2 million people in 11 North Texas Counties. The District is partnering with the City of Dallas Water Utilities to carry supplemental water to their service areas. The $2.4 billion plan contains constructing 150 miles of large-diameter water conveyance pipeline.

Herrenknecht AG in Schwanau, Germany, is the producer of the 12-ft 4-in EPBM that is said to be operated for tunnelling through the soft ground and shallow groundwater conditions to cross under Cedar Creek and adjacent wetlands and beneath Hollywood Lake.

The team reviewed the tunnel boring machine at the Herrenknecht factory in January before it was packed up and shipped to Texas for use by the construction team Traylor Sundt JV for the IPL. The TBM was anticipated to be on-site in March 2023, with tunnelling to start sometime in May.
