Reliable command & control systems for complex tunnels

Tunnel engineering, systems and components are becoming ever more complex. To deliver tunnel operations safely, effectively, and reliably, requires a sophisticated command & control system. This includes user interfaces which allow operators to react and adapt to changing tunnel conditions.

From single tunnels to multi-tunnel systems, command & control centres are the heart of tunnel operations. Electrical, mechanical and IT systems interface with countless sensors and other components to create the individual or collective tunnel ecosystem. Coordinating all data and translating into a decision support dashboard is a complex and specialist task. Our team has extensive experience in designing and implementing command & control systems that give the operator clear and reliable access to all tunnel systems.

Our services range from software design specification through to system behaviour models and human interface design. With support from colleagues in our parent companies Royal HaskoningDHV and Witteveen+Bos, we can also design and deliver control rooms and complexes.

How we realise command and control centres

Optimising tunnel operations

A bespoke and well-designed command & control centre is essential to the efficient operation of tunnel services. With data collection and translation, operators can adjust tunnel systems to optimise efficiency, delivering a safer, smoother service to users.

Tailored support for tunnel operators
Our tunnel experts can work with clients to define and deliver the tunnel command system that delivers their needs. With extensive experience across the globe, we can design all control systems from specifying software to designing the physical building.
Additional infrastructure interface
Tunnels do not operate in isolation. Our experts approach each project with a view to the bigger picture, working closely with other public and private companies to ensure coordination and cooperation between operators of both tunnels and other infrastructure.
Knowledge sharing across our partnership
TEC is a partnership between two global engineering consultancies, Royal HaskoningDHV and Witteveen+Bos. This strength and depth of skill and experience gives our tunnel experts a unique insight into other engineering disciplines enabling them to share knowledge across sectors which supports delivery of integrated and innovative tunnel projects.
