The prestigious sea lock at IJmuiden

2016 - present

In the watery middle of a busy lock complex, a new lock is being constructed to reach improved, 24/7 access to the port of Amsterdam. This sea lock, located at IJmuiden in The Netherlands, will cost €850 million, including maintenance for 26 years. On completion, it will become the largest lock in the world.

Our partner, Iv-Groep, uses the Vision 42 app to continuously monitor the construction work and the stability of the environment. Even the evacuation sirens have been automated by our software. In order to satisfy the extreme alerting requirements, we had to develop a custom expert system. This expert system was the precursor to Deep Thought, our artificial intelligence anomaly detector, which is currently in beta.

2019

In the Danish capital, three tunnel segments measuring 1.100 meters in length are to be constructed with a tunnel boring machine. The buildings along the Strandboulevarden and the Gammel Kalkbrænderi Vej will be monitored closely using the Vision 42 application, taking the machines location into account. The purpose of these tunnels is to drain large quantities of rainfall.

Scaling up to country-size

2015 - present

The Flemish government partnered with Vision 42 to manage their geotechnical data. This level of operation required enterprise integrations, like identity and access management. Our powerful REST application interface is being used to serve geotechnical data on-the-fly to the broad public, through popular web applications like Database Underground Flanders. Their customised version of the Vision 42 app is called Gismo and contains 450 projects and 45.000 sensor time series scattered across Flanders.

Size matters: the Kieldrecht lock

2015 - present

With its 500 meter length and its 68 meter width, the Kieldrecht lock is currently the largest lock in the world. It provides passage to the left-bank docks of the port of Antwerp in Belgium.

Five clicks of tunnel boring

2018

At a pace of 15 meters a day, a tunnel boring machine will construct two parallel tunnel tubes of 2.5 kilometer in length. This tunnel is a part of the larger Rijnlandroute project in The Netherlands.



Constructing the Oosterweel link

2016 - present

The R1 ring road around Antwerp will finally be closed by this €3.25 billion project. The purposes of this infrastructural project are: fewer traffic congestions, fewer accidents and an improved quality of life in the Antwerp region of Belgium.

Renovation of the Vandamme sea lock

2014 - present

This €120 million project relies on Vision 42 for its sensor monitoring. In the picture below, the lifting of a 2.300 metric ton door can be seen. The Pierre Vandamme lock is one of two sea locks providing access to the inner harbour of the port of Zeebrugge in Belgium.
