MossIA reached important milestone by completing jet grouting activities at Circle K worksite in Moss centre
MossIA celebrated this important milestone Wednesday, October 6 with coffee and cake with 70 colleagues and guests.
The works at the Circle K location started in April 2021 and were completed without serious incident and on time. In order to build the future Moss railway tunnel safely under this location with low rock overburden, extensive jet grouting has been performed with our subcontractor Keller by placing 650 jet grout columns to stabilize the soft soil by creating a solid concrete block.
“Completion of jet grouting at Circle K is a significant milestone. We finished the works on time and most importantly without incident during a pandemic,” said MossIA project director Ragnar Reitan.
