Photo: SC&RA Rigging Job of the Year winner ($2 million+), Mammoet designed, built, and executed the extraction of Bertha, the world's largest tunnel boring machine, from under Seattle. Bertha stopped functioning 1,000 feet into a planned 9,000 foot path. A 120-foot deep access pit had to be constructed to extract the cutter head so the repairs on the machine could be made. In the end, Mammoet designed and executed a lift of Bertha's bearing block which is more that 400 Tons. Bertha is now fully operational.
