Managing safety equipments


Tunnel operations are managed from the Italian Central Control Facility (PCCI); there is also a backup control room on the French platform which can be activated at any time should there be a breakdown in the main control room. The regulators/operators drive the safety equipment by means of the various control screens and the Centralised Technical Management system.

This IT system is connected to all the equipment in the tunnel and processes 20 000 pieces of information in real team. It suggests standard actions to the regulators/operators and controls the tunnel safety equipment (ventilators, lighting, radio system …).
