ElectroMech’s unique Tunnel Mucking System has proved to be an innovation in various critical projects for rapid removal of overburden from tunnelling or shaft excavation. The recent installations for the Mumbai water supply project involved ElectroMech’s tunnel mucking crane under the government’s Jawaharlal Nehru National Urban Renewal Mission (JNNURM). The INR 2235 crore project was divided into two parts. The construction work of this prestigious project was awarded to two construction majors namely, Soma Construction Company for Phase I (Gundovali to Thane) and to a Joint Venture of Unity Infraprojects Ltd. and IVRCL Ltd. for Phase II (Thane to Bhandup). Interestingly, ElectroMech supplied tunnel mucking cranes to both the companies, thus playing a crucial role in BMC’s ambitious 24×7 water supply project.
