SMARTEC and its sister company TELEMAC have provided the reactor containment building’s monitoring system for the Finnish EPR in Olkiluoto since its early construction back in 2007. In January 2019 an engineering team from both companies participated
Smartec in collaboration with Politecnico of Turin has pervormed a series of crack detection tests in concrete beams using different types of distriuted optical fiber cables.
The two parallel outdoor penstocks of Perebella – Rosone are located near the “Parco Nazionale del Gran Paradiso” in Piemonte, Italy.
A structural monitoring system was installed in 2007 by Riga Technical University; at that time 21 SOFO long base deformation sensors and a measurement system for automatic crack monitoring were implemented. The monitoring system was upgraded in 2019
The Hong Kong Airport expansion project, currently underway, involves major land reclamation works. In order to evaluate the mechanical properties of these newly constructed columns, pressuremeter testing were undertaken.
A portion of the concrete lining of the SAN SALVATORE tunnel collapse in June 2017 due to water accumulation. It was decided to install distributed fiber optic sensors onto the tunnel liner for a continuous and automatic monitoring of the tunnel.
The Kathryn Spirit is a cargo ship currently docked in the Port of Beauharnois, 30 km from Montreal. A cofferdam had to be built around the ship to protect the St. Lawrence River from possible polution
The monitoring system gives real-time data on the behavior of the concrete containment and its steel liner. Ensuring leak-tightness are traditional sensors (in particular vibrating wire) and fiber optic sensors.
Smartec provided a turn-key service of Structural Health Monitoring SHM for three of the six dams on Jersey Island: Val de La Mare, Handois and Grand Vaux.
Götaälvbron, the bridge over Göta River, was built in the thirties and it is more than seventy years old
More than 100 SOFO sensors were imbedded inside the columns that form the “skeleton” of the whole construction. To know the evolution and magnitude of the tensions inside the columns is very important because the resulting data are given information.
