Steffie-Orbival : Let’s follow the new Tunnel Boring Machine (TBM) for Grand Paris Express

The first TBM of the Metro Line 15 South started to dig on April the 3rd from Champigny-sur-Marne. “Steffie-Orbival” TBM will proceed at a 12 meters a day pace, for a total run of 2 178 meters.  

It’s a tradition to name TBM after women, dating back to the 1500s when miners – and anyone working with explosives such as armourers and military engineers – prayed to Saint Barbara to protect them from the dangers underground. Santa Barbara is the patron saint of tunnellers and miners and all who work and visit underground construction environments.

Cementys is monitoring surface settlements, tunnel convergence and nearby deformation of existing structures.

New product

SensoLogger Acoustic 

SensoLogger® Acoustic interrogator propagates high frequency light pulses through a standard single mode optical fiber and analyses the backscattered signal (Coherent Rayleigh Noise scattering). Any event occurring near the fiber and having an acoustic energy, vibration for instance, will disturb the backscattered signal by shifting its phase. The phase shift is analyzed by our interrogator in order to characterise the frequency and amplitude of the event. The precise location of the event is resolved by Time Domain Reflectometry.
