SPIE Belgium won the preventive and corrective maintenance contract for the electromechanical equipment of the E40/E25 motorway link, better known under the name of Cointe Tunnel.
SPIE Belgium is proficient in many techniques such as dynamic sign systems, vehicle counting, remote management, radio retransmission, remote control of public lighting, the CCTV which comprises everything to do with fixed and mobile close circuit cameras and the MAN network.
Nearly 12.5 km of motorways in total are monitored round the clock, year round. Thanks to the cameras, the operator can detect any problems in the connection, aided by an Automatic Incident Detection (AID) system which relies on various algorithms to detect accidents or stops and trigger an alarm. The operator can then react accordingly and send a scenario that will adjust all the signs to close a lane on the motorway or even the tunnel. Thanks to the complete remote control system put in place, SPIE always has an automatic return of information transmitted in case of a technical problem (broken lamp, defective sign).
As the impact of coronavirus on our activities increases and in the face of ever-stricter government measures to halt its spread, SPIE Belgium would like to inform you about the steps it has taken within the organisation.
To this day:
SPIE Belgium has decided not to stop its activities completely, considering that some of these may be essential or even critical to maintaining the activities of companies in critical sectors and essential services that are vital to the smooth running of the country. This is being done, of course, in strict respect of the measures taken by the authorities, and treating the health and safety of our staff, our clients, our suppliers and sub-contractors as a priority.
This unprecedented crisis reminds us of the importance of two of our founding values: responsibility and proximity. By each taking our responsibilities, we will overcome this ordeal.
Drawing strength from our 120 years of experience and from the solidity of the Group to which we belong, we remain confident in the future and in our mutual capacity to adapt and be resilient.
