Attempts by illegal migrants to get from France to Britain through the Channel Tunnel has put the whole issue of tunnel safety in the spotlight.
Sice is at Intertraffic offering solutions to the issue of tunnel safety, particularly the most feared threat – fire. The aim of its systems are to ensure an incident does not become a tragedy.
Sice has been developing its solutions in response to the European Tunnel Assessment Programme (EuroTAP) designed to raise safety levels of tunnels throughout the European Union.
The company offers an integrated centralised tunnel management system designed to “guarantee” maximum levels of safety and operation during both normal times and in emergencies. It has implemented its technology to bring smart systems in more than 160 kilometres of tunnel.
The latest aspect of its work on safety is the development of an intelligent signalling system and emergency guidance system for people able to function in a degraded way. The system has been developed in collaboration with the University of Zaragoza and Implaser.
