Governor Cuomo abandoned plans for a 15-month shutdown of the Canarsie Tunnel....The team consulted with Kenichi Soga, Berkeley professor of civil engineering and a leader in developing fiber optics to detect potential vulnerabilities in large-scale infrastructure projects.
a truck filled with cardboard caught fire inside the Eisenhower-Johnson Memorial Tunnel in CO. What could have ended up being a major disaster was resolved in three hours. Thanks to the fiber-optic fire detection system there were no casualties nor damage to the tunnel structure
AP Sensing provided its reliable Linear Heat Detection solution to monitor surface and coal reclaim tunnel conveyors at the Bulga Coal Handling Plant, Australia.
