In late 2017 BBT SE commissioned a bidding consortium led by ILF Consulting Engineers to perform the monitoring of the ground and surface water resources of the Brenner Base Tunnel.
The monitoring of ground and surface water resources of the longest underground railway connection in the world is performed across borders both in Austria and in Italy along the entire 64 km long route. In total, at 1,200 measuring points measurements and samples are taken every four weeks, with maintenance and management of 100 partly very complex data logger installations in groundwater, springs, creeks and rivers.
ILF has been assisting BBT SE with the monitoring of ground and surface water resources for many years. For the Brenner Base Tunnel project ILF has carried out many different design services since 1977.
