Tunnel safety measures are primarily aimed at preventing accidents and secondarily at minimizing the effects of an event. Both aspects are taken into account as decisive design objectives in the planning and realization of the operating and safety installations.
- Integral tests and fire tests allow the effectiveness of the installations to be verified.
- Regular training of operating and emergency personnel, audits and event simulations ensure a high level of personal and building protection.
For example, we carried out the electromecanical equipment of several important tunnels in Switzerland and are currently heavily involved with the equipment of the entire Gotthard Road tunnel system. In India, we are currently in charge of the equipment design of a new urban tunnel in Mumbai, as well as of various rail tunnels in the north of the country.
