Dilmunia Crossing

110m water pipeline installation using an ISEKI TCC1300 tunnel boring machine in Bahrain.

An Overview

Joseph Gallagher Middle East completed the microtunnel using an ISEKI TCC1300 tunnel boring machine, to complete the 110m bore.

Dilmunia is a resort style luxury health island off the north-eastern coast of the Island of Muharraq. Water was being delivered to the island by tanker and Joseph Gallagher Middle East were sub-contracted by Panorama Contracting to complete the carrier pipe which will have a 600mm water pipe inserted into it to supply water directly to the island.

The microtunnel pipeline crossed under a very busy dual carriage way where we were just three meters from the live surface with no incident or interruption to these critical roads.
