Kick-off for further Design Services for the Swiss Belchen Road Tunnel

The Swiss Belchen road tunnel was opened in 1970 and consists of two separate twin-lane tubes with unidirectional traffic, each having a length of 3.2 km. In early 2021, with the so-called rehabilitation tunnel going into operation, the Belchen tunnel system will comprise three twin-lane tunnels. ILF Consulting Engineers is also involved in the design and construction of the rehabilitation tunnel.

Intergeo 2020: 100 percent digital with a real Network Atmosphere

2020 is the year of the unexpected, of surprises and the occurrence of events nobody thought possible. Worldwide we are required to deal with this challenge, to understand it and learn from it. Personal contact is currently reduced to a minimum. Through these experiences, we are reminded of how important and irreplaceable it is to be able to face each other and look each other in the eyes. This is what dialogue engaged at eye level and personal interaction are all about, as has been possible at INntergeo Expo and Conference for the past 25 years.

Fugro performs Monaco’s first O-cell Pile Tests for L’Anse du Portier Eco-Project


Fugro has completed an 11-month land site characterisation project for the Sogefon/Fondamenta joint venture as part of Monaco’s prestigious L’Anse du Portier (Portier Cove) land extension project.

Fugro supported the foundation design phase by performing three Osterberg cell (O-cell) pile tests, a first in Monaco, to acquire a comprehensive understanding of the new site’s substrata resistance, on which a ‘forest’ of more than 1,000 piles will be installed.

L’Anse du Portier is a land extension of Monaco’s existing coastline and will create a new 6-hectare eco-district around the Grimaldi Forum exhibition centre. The complex onsite geology requires foundation piles with a diameter of up to 1.8 m and 60 m long to reach solid ground. To verify the pile design, Fugro utilised the O-cell method as the best option for the land extension’s geology and configuration, and the demanding project schedule. The average friction test result was around 30 % higher than the friction value considered during the initial design phase, which will enable Sogefon/Fondamenta to optimise their pile design for construction and achieve significant cost savings.

Leonardo Pedrazzi, deputy administrator of Sogefon, said: “Fugro’s O-cell test results provided vital parameters that allowed us to fully characterise the geotechnical conditions of the site’s three foundation zones. The Geo-data acquired have optimised our pile design ready for the installation phase.”

Michel Maron, geotechnical engineer for Fugro, said: “Interpretation of the three test piles clearly demonstrated the value of O-cell testing and enabled Sogefon/Fondamenta to correlate results from the friction and tip resistance tests performed onsite for much more accurate ground insights.”
