International Bridge between Fort Erie,Ontario and Buffalo USA – 2006 and 2012
Canadian National and other rail company (ViaRail, ONR, SCFG)
Complete inspection of the bridge support units. Since 2001, we have performed more than 30 annual bridge inspections on behalf of the C.N.
One of the main problems of inspecting this structure was the major current of the Niagara River. This problem has led us to develop specific techniques for moving safely in major currents. For this contract, we have also improved extremely precise data collection methods allowing us to produce 3D models which perfectly reflect the reality. Data collection was done with the traditional way combined with computerized data captured by sonar.
