Manuj Taneja, Leighton Asia Project Engineer at the Deep Tunnel Sewerage System Phase 2 (DTSS) project in Singapore loves dynamic and new challenges.
Besides his passion for sports, especially cricket, he is particularly fascinated by tunnelling and use of tunnel boring machines (TBM).
“The geotechnical condition of every project site is unique, that’s why it is critical to estimate the performance of a TBM accurately, to assist site planning activities including costing and schedule preparation,” said Manuj.
As a Project Engineer, Manuj’s role involves coordinating with different parties to submit appropriate method statements, preparing safe working procedures on tunnelling works and forecasting tunnelling activities.
Recently, Manuj took the initiative to develop a cost-efficient solution for the muck pit, which could potentially help the project save around A$1 million.
