Suburban Stockholm is one of Sweden's largest infrastructure projects ever and aims to enable continued growth in the capital. The project aims to simplify the everyday life of residents in and around the capital by relieving existing infrastructure and making travel through the city much easier.
It is not only the size of the project that makes it a challenge. The environment and the environment in which the project takes place is also a major challenge with several sensitive points along the new route, says Mikael Karlsson, bitr. assignment manager at Bergsäker. Tough restrictions require control Bergsäker is responsible for managing and measuring the environmental impact for the northernmost half of the project. The environment in which the project takes place makes it extremely important to be constantly updated on what is happening and how the surroundings are affected. Mainly because of the project's proximity to housing, tunnels and facilities with sensitive installations. One of the biggest problems is what the people in the project environment experience. Noise and vibration can be a source of concern and also cause delays in the project. There we take advantage of AVA Monitoring's automatic measurement system, which creates security for the entire project. Automatic systems create freedom Passing Stockholm affects the environment in several ways. Among other things, the project can make the entire subway stop at excessive vibration of the blasting work that is taking place. Therefore, accessibility and control is of paramount importance for Bergsäker. Through the AVA Monitoring System we get full control of our measurement data regarding both vibration and noise. The system gives us the opportunity to quickly answer any questions about the project and share measurement data with different stakeholders. It gives us control and credibility against everyone involved, ”continues Mikael Karlsson at Bergsäker.
Real-time measurement data with minimum maintenance To manage and maintain control over the project's environmental impact, Bergsäker uses the AVA Monitoring System with several different sensors as well as the web-based measurement system AvaNet. The automatic system enables Bergsäker to focus on delivering security and control to all the project's stakeholders while increasing efficiency, as no time is needed to maintain the system. AVA Monitoring's system creates peace of mind in the project and ensures that our managers have control over everything that happens. Accessibility is very important to us and so is the long battery life. This is a very big plus for those who handle the measurement and therefore require very little manual application which saves valuable time, concludes Mikael at Bergsäker.
