No    6 tons I believe.
But I suppose it could be cast under supervision by Whitechapel at another foundry. Did not Paccards or some other european foundry cast some enormous bell of a similar weight at a foundry that specialised in ships propellers

Quote from BBC website
He added that the stadium's 27-tonne bell was being cast on Friday at London's Whitechapel Foundry - where 13.5-tonne Big Ben was cast in 1856 - and would be inscribed with a quote from The Tempest's Caliban: "Be not afeard, the isle is full of noises".
