Yearly Inspections, condition assessments, Service-Life Evaluations, as well as Maintenance and repair strategies of Port of Rotterdam's quay walls
investigation & durability analysis - Assess condition & provide repair options to extend service life by 75 years
Durability modeling of concrete elements (e.g. caissons, piles, deck) using SIMCO's STADIUM® methodology
Develop a technical basis for future inspections of hydro power plants based on degradation mechanisms affecting these structures and their associated risks
Appropriate design of new structures to ensure durability requirements are met and proper evaluation and rehabilitation of existing structures continue to remain a challenge for owners and managers of civil infrastructure. It is anticipated that significant funding will be required to implement more adequate asset management practices and to develop new and innovative technologies and software solutions for the effective inspection, maintenance, rehabilitation and management of civil infrastructure.
SIMCO combines innovative solutions and the next generation technologies to ensure the quality, durability, efficiency, and sustainability of civil engineering works. SIMCO’s innovative approach was developed to assist in the management of the complete lifecycle of concrete infrastructure while meeting the most rigorous international standards. End-use applications include structures like bridges, culverts, tunnels, nuclear and hydropower plants, commercial, residential and industrial facilities, port and maritime structures, etc.
Any solution is only as good as the information it can provide to owners and managers and why SIMCO continuously strives to ensure that solutions developed provide accurate, timely and valuable information for the effective management of assets.
Over the years, SIMCO has developed numerous solutions for different applications including a bridge deck repair tool, quay wall modeling system (KMS), inspection and maintenance optimization tool (C2M), an infrastructure management system (IMS), and more.
SIMCO’S STATE-OF-THE-ART DURABILITY DESIGN SOLUTIONS ASSIST OWNERS, MANAGERS AND ENGINEERS IN OPTIMIZING INSPECTION ACTIVITIES, IN PLANNING FOR PRO-ACTIVE OR CONDITION-BASED MAINTENANCE AND REPAIRS WHILE IMPROVING RISK MANAGEMENT AND CAPITAL EXPENDITURES
SIMCO also works closely with clients to appropriately identify and analyze the “Gaps” in implemented systems. This process provides a critical analysis and evaluation of the relative strengths and weaknesses of these systems and helps to determine if an existing application, procedure or process should be modified or a completely new solution be developed.
SIMCO has worked closely with a network of national and international partners in order to provide turnkey solutions for multiple infrastructure durability problems.
