VSI/Geovisie shortlisted for Tunnelling Award!
VSI is proud to share the news that we are shortlisted for two categories at the International Tunnelling & Underground Space Awards 2014.
The first stage of judging is complete and our entry “Modular Immersion Equipment”, has been shortlisted in the “Product / Equipment Innovation of the Year” category. Our modular equipment is specifically designed for the immersion of tunnels, caissons and intake/outfalls. The advantage is that our equipment can be shipped all over the world and assembled with rather ordinary equipment within a short time span.
Our other entry on the short list “Bottom Survey and the Counter Moulding of the Gravel Bed” was made possible with the help of the survey firm Geovisie and fits in the “Technical Innovation of the Year” category. Our innovation made it possible to install tunnel elements within their tight vertical tolerance, even though the bottom slabs of the elements suffered construction deviations outside the tolerances.
