A recent photo shared by The Boring Company (TBC) showcases Prufrock 3 poised for launch at Tesla Giga Texas, marking a significant milestone for the company’s meticulous preparations over the past few weeks. Since mid-January, TBC has been meticulously assembling Prufrock 3 in close proximity to Giga Texas. Diverging from conventional tunnel boring machines (TBMs) that necessitate deep launch pits, Prufrock boasts a unique ability to “porpoise.” This innovative feature enables it to initiate tunneling directly from the surface, seamlessly navigating underground and resurfacing upon reaching the tunnel’s endpoint. Through its porpoising capability, Prufrock optimizes the excavation process, ensuring efficiency and precision in tunnel construction.
