Robbins TBM is being produced for a new tunnel

Robbins Company is assembling Crossover XRE Single Shield TBM for the second Severomuysky tunnel.

Prefabricated components of the TBM are delivered to the plant. They include a motor plate, main bearing elements and main drive components. Also, experts have started manufacturing elements of the TBM cutting head (rotor).

The TBM will be ready and will arrive at the site in the summer of 2020. It has already been named "Vostok" (East), as the tunnel will start from the Eastern side of the portal. 

Manufacturing of the second TBM which will start drilling from the Western portal will begin this year. 

The $74 million contract for the production of two TBMs was signed with Robbins Company in the summer of 2019.
