Infrastructuur beheren met satellietdata
Current information is very important for managing and maintaining infrastructure. Satellite deformation measurements provide for a frequent stream of data. We apply intelligent data processing and trend analysis to this data, which we convert into practical recommendations for effective maintenance. The result is that road availability increases and costs drop. Important benefits, in other words.
Thanks to frequent satellite data any subsidence, movements and deformations become known at an early stage. This makes timely repair possible during planned maintenance. Strukton Civiel works together with its partners Airbus (data) and Sensar (data processing) to collect and process this information. Strukton's strength lies in analysing the data and transforming the results into practical applications.
Satellite data for the A15 motorway
Satellite deformation measurements are safer, smarter and more sustainable. These were key reasons for the A-Lanes A15 Consortium (which includes Strukton) to decide to apply this methodology to the Maasvlakte-Vaanplein road section on a trial basis. This involves a 37-km motorway section and approximately 140 civil works that are being managed and maintained by this combination for a period of 20 years. The project team is very enthusiastic about the results.
Benefits of satellite deformation measurements
- Safer! No road closures, no people working on the roadway, no night-time work
- Smarter! More frequent and more accurate information, resulting in improved road availability
- More sustainable! Better infrastructure, longer lifespan, timely repair of damage and therefore lower maintenance costs
Service levels vary from status display to analysis and maintenance and availability predictions. If applicable, this information is supplemented with specific maintenance recommendations and implementation proposals.
Satellite deformation measurements are highly suited for:
- Busy routes where availability is even more important
- Difficult to access areas
- Large sections with many civil works
- Areas whose subsoil is prone to subsidence
Customers, such as the Directorate-General for Public Works and Water Management (Rijkswaterstaat), ProRail, provinces, municipalities and water boards are able to take effective strategic management and maintenance decisions. Thanks to Strukton Civiel's innovative satellite deformation measurements.
