Depending on the geological environment, tunnelling operations can have a number of different risks – harmful gases, rock burst, water inrush, hazardous dust and particulates, structural collapse and machine failure to name a few.
These can all have a devastating impact on both construction progress and worker safety, so it’s essential that organisations have the right technologies in place to predict and prevent these incidents from occurring.
To help organisations, we develop robust, reliable and easy to maintain tunnel monitoring and safety technology, including real-time gas, dust and environment monitoring.
Our unique particulate monitoring system uses lab-grade precision laser technology to accurately and continuously identify multiple hazardous particulates of different sizes in real-time.
Our tunnel monitoring and safety solutions are certified and approved to the highest international standards and we’ve worked on the world’s most prestigious tunnelling projects including Cross Rail, The Channel Tunnel, LTF France, Paris Metro, Doha metro, Waterview NZ and Singapore Metro. Our clients include TBM manufacturers Herrenknecht, Robbins, China Railway and most major civil tunnelling contractors such as Costain, Strabag, Murphys, Balfour Beatty, BMB and many more.
Using our tunnel monitoring and safety solutions, organisations can drastically improve operational productivity, as well as the health and safety of both workers and machine assets. These solutions are supplied to a variety of sectors, including rail, power, nuclear, and water and work at all stages of tunnelling development, from breaking ground to breaking through and beyond.
Gas Detection at Lower Lea Valley Cable Tunnel
Discover how our gas detection system enabled the measurement of critical levels of methane, carbon monoxide, hydrogen sulphide and oxygen during the Lower Lea Valley Cable Tunnel project.
