ROLE ACTIVE IN
THE DEVELOPMENT OF
NEW TECHNIQUES AND SOLUTIONS
Over three decades of experience in the most varied types of underground works, EPOS has kept pace with the growing complexity and technical demands of the different works.
The constant concern with improving the safety conditions and quality of the works leads EPOS to maintain an active role in the development of new techniques and solutions capable of improving its performance in these two very sensitive areas.
Today, EPOS is recognised for the high technology of its means of production, both human and the equipment and construction techniques used, which is evident in the quality of its works.
The innovative "SysTunnel", a complete tunnel monitoring system developed in partnership with FiberSensing and the Geotechnical Centre of Instituto Superior Técnico.
A method of coating wells and chimneys that allows the application of sprayed concrete on these works using remotely controlled equipment with a range of up to 400 metres, eliminating the need to expose operators who previously had to descend along the wells to manual projection to risk.
