Communication and Safety System
Communication and supervision of tunnels is becoming more important in coordinating operations and safety. During normal operations and in emergency situations it is crucial that all personnel are within contact and may easily be located and alerted.
Quality Management for Segment Production
The segments will be tracked during production, storage and installation to maximize storage capacity, reduce storage and personnel costs and optimize the logistic chain. Complete and clearly structured documentation of all manufacturing steps ensures quality control.
Mould and Segment Quality Check
The quality control for moulds and segments delivers a 3D geometry check to detect deviations in the sub-millimetre range. The customer receives a target vs. actual comparison of the specified test criteria as well as comprehensive reports on compliance of project-specific tolerances.
Navigation Systems Large Diameter Tunnelling
VMT´s best-selling Navigation Systems worldwide steer tunnels of several kilometres in length with millimetre accuracy to their destination. In addition, the stability and consistency of tunnels and segments will be boosted with products that automate and monitor processes.
Real-time deformation monitoring of critical equipment and structures is aimed at detecting risks for building projects in built-up and residential areas to avoid accidents and damage. When critical changes occur, automatic warning and alarm messages are sent to facilitate reaction.
Navigation Systems Microtunnelling
The microtunnel navigation systems are used in tunnels from a diameter of 800 mm upward and are suited for all alignment geometries, particularly for curved and long distance advances. Monitoring solutions track bentonite lubrication, gap movements and the load acting on the jacked pipes to prevent pipe damage.
TBM Process Data Management
The Process Data Management System is designed for managing complex infrastructure projects by providing an integrated solution for information management and risk assessment. This allows TBM tunnelling to be continuously optimized and adjusted to the prevailing geological conditions.
Navigation Systems Conventional Tunnelling
Those Navigation Systems allow the designed profile to be excavated accurately. They help accelerating the construction process irrespective of restricted visibility due to dust and increase the personnel safety. Additional features provide 3D view of tunnel profiles and anchor positions.
