Thames Tideway Tunnel
The consortium comprising Ferrovial Agroman and Laing O’Rourke has been chosen to build the central section of the Thames Tideway Tunnel, as part of London’s sewer system, for 746 million pounds, equivalent to 1,050 million euro.
Costing 4.2 billion pounds, the Thames Tideway Tunnel will avoid the discharge of untreated sewage from 34 identified ‘combined sewer overflows’ into the tidal Thames River. It is vital for the future of London’s sewer network, which must cater for a growing population. The building works started in 2016 and they are expected to be completed in seven years’ time.
For this project Simem Underground, part of Simem Family of Companies and specialized into mining and tunneling, supplied Sealcrete: a grout plant equipped with a high shear colloidal mixer for unsurpassed mixing quality.
