Kallosluis monitoring

In 2018, a condition monitoring system (strain, water flow, wind, position, …) was installed for the Harbour of Antwerp by Com&Sens¬†with subcontractors¬†24Sea and Fluves.

The scope of the project is to monitor the loads acting on particular sections and zones of the steel structure of the lock gate to support the analysing of the impact of external sources on the gate movement.

The purpose of the measurements is to characterize the structural behaviour of the lock as function of external loadings such as wind, wave currents because of (heavy) propeller motions when ships are entering/exiting the water lock.

Fluves executes the water flow monitoring with acoustic sensors.
