TBM Florence community event


On 22 March, the local community came together to celebrate the commissioning of tunnel boring machine (TBM) Florence. Named after Australia’s first female electrical engineer, Florence Violet McKenzie (1890-1982), TBM Florence is set to excavate about 15 kilometres of the 17km headrace tunnel. TBM Florence was named by local Berridale student Riley Douch who along with his family visited Tantangara today for the TBM commissioning community event.
