Tunnels & Underground Construction India Summit, 12th - 14th December 2011 || New Delhi

SP Technical Research Institute of Sweden’s full scale tunnel fire tests may aid in addressing the concerns of safety in India

The findings of this month’s full scale fire tests by SP Technical Research Institute of Sweden (SPTRIOS) will be presented in an exclusive insight at this year’s Tunnels & Underground Construction India Summit in New Delhi where Konkan Railway, Chennai Metro Rail, RITES and Ministry of Road Transport & Highway are set to address prevalent tunnelling safety issues.

Tunnels are a critical part of modern infrastructure, and as they become increasingly customary in connecting different regions or countries to foster economic growth, questions of their safety are unavoidable. With the vast movement in tunnelling and underground construction taking place in India, there has been a substantial need to review and discuss the relevance of international activities to specific Indian conditions.

SP Technical Research Institute of Sweden, an internationally recognised leading authority on tunnel fire safety, plans to conduct full scale fire tests in Sweden this month and have announced they will share an exclusive insight and present a first hand report of the findings at this years Tunnels & Underground Construction India Summit in December. Margaret Simonson McNamee and Johan Lindström from the institute will conduct an intensive afternoon workshop that will deal with the important issue of fire safety in tunnels. Delegates will be given the opportunity to discuss historic events, international regulations and guidelines as well as state-of-the-art international fire research concepts.

In addition to presentations from Konkan Railway, Chennai Metro Rail, RITES, Ministry of Road Transport & Highway, the summit will be chaired by Dr. T G Sitharam, Professor in Civil Engineering and Chairman of the Centre for Infrastructure and Sustainable in India, providing a unique platform for construction leaders and senior government representatives in India to discuss and resolve tunneling and underground construction issues affecting the industry today.
