Tunnel Risk Assessment & Control Expertise (TRACE)

SENER’s Tunnel Risk Assessment & Control Expertise is a comprehensive management system that facilitates global control of the phases of operation of a tunnel boring machine (TBM).

The TRACE method mitigates and reduces risks throughout TBM operations through a specialized and independent approach of the driving condition parameters. Mechanized tunneling relies on the continuous flow of information. SENER’s real-time monitoring and analysis improves performance while inhibiting delays and stoppage caused by mechanical problems.

In addition to saving time, TRACE also results in cost reductions, improvement in performance, and avoiding unintended events – ultimately leading to innovative solutions.
