NFM TBM - Factory Acceptance

Representatives from John-Holland, the Land Transport Authority, NFM Technologies and subsidiary NHI were recently present for the inspection of the first T208 Slurry TBM in China. The machine has successfully passed the factory acceptance test after 2 days of evaluation.

This is the first of 3 Slurry TBMs under T208 that will be launched from the Tagore Cut and Cover site. The machine is making its way to Singapore and tunnelling works for the Thomson Line should commence by the middle of this year.
