It's not every day you get to print and wrap the vinyl for a drilling machine... Meet Millicent, one of @tidewaylondon's new tunnel boring machines! PressOn had the honour of printing and adhering the vinyl wrap for both Millicent and Ursula (another of the machines) as their work to transform London's sewer system continues.
The shortlist for the names was inspired by a number of iconic and inspiring London women throughout history, and after holding a poll, the names for all 6 machines were chosen. Millicent is named after Dame Millicent Fawcett, a feminist, intellectual, union leader, and writer, who lived in Battersea.
Due to the curved shape of the drill, this was something of a tricky install - but PressOn's team aren't phased by a mere 2 days in a MEWP machine later, the graphics - which will last for well over a year - were fitted perfectly, and Millicent and Ursula were born.
