Significant Milestone achieved in the Middle East

 / SEE MORE General
Working with our JV partners Al Hassanain (AHC), JGL have just completed a 767m long, 2.4m internal diameter pipe jacked tunnel at one of the largest wastewater projects in the world! This is the second tunnel delivered by the JV, the first being both the largest diameter and longest pipe jack to date in Kuwait at a length of 822m and 2.4 metre diameter with a vertical S curve.  The S curve passed under existing services before rising to minimal cover tying in with 2200 metres of open cut pipeline previously completed. 

The latest milestone marks the completion of all onshore tunnels being delivered on the project.

Both teams are now mobilising the remainder of the equipment to start the Long Sea Outfall Tunnel, with a planned launch date towards the end of February 2022.
This will be a continuous length of 1950m with an internal diameter of 2.2m, a record-breaking length for the region. The machine will then be recovered from the seabed using barges and an experienced team of divers.

We are incredibly proud of our partnership with Al Hassanain Construction which has resulted in this instrumental landmark.
