01 Jul Tunnel Boring Machine for the Chunnel
Over the years, Ebco has contributed in making a number of tunnel boring machines that have been used across the globe. One of the largest tunnel borers that Ebco helped make was used to excavate a tunnel that connects England to France at the Straight of Dover beneath the ocean in the English Channel. This popular tunnel is known today as the Channel Tunnel, or Chunnel. Today this tunnel is used to transport about 50,000 people per day between England and France. Ebco is proud to have contributed with the creation of this world famous tunnel.
