  •  WP5 Advanced Ground Prediction System for TBM Razel has more than 150km experience in tunnelling works. At present Razel has 5 TBM projects

covering all conditions, urban environment (Water collector VL9 in Paris), hard rock (Hydraulic gallery in Corsica, 6 km in granite, and in Algeria, 11 km), and in very difficult conditions (Hydraulic gallery in aquifer zone with water inflow rate on order of 100l/s; Fréjus tunnel in squeezing rock under height overburden). During the specifications and development stage Razel will provide its knowledge and experience as a TBM user to adjust the prediction system to the real needs of the TBM on project. During the testing stage of WP5, Razel will be the user of the Advanced Ground Prediction on one of their TBM projects.

  •  WP6 Robotised Maintenance Operations

Razel focuses on improving its performance in the field of safety through strict work organization and getting construction workers involved in order to protect them and their health. During the specifications and development stage Razel will provide its knowledge and experience as a TBM user to adjust the robotised maintenance operations system to the real needs of a TBM project and to feed directly into production demand. During the testing stage of WP5, Razel will be the user of the robotised maintenance operations system.
