Large civil engineering projects: dams, tunnels, excavations, in Italy and worldwide
Monitoring systems for dams and large scale civil engineering projects in general have always been the areas of greatest interest to the Pizzi Instruments team. We were established over 35 years ago, continuing the activity of an important Italian company specialised in instruments for monitoring dams: Officine Galileo of Florence.
We have provided instruments and solutions for monitoring more than 300 dams in Italy and worldwide.
Amongst our works, we boast the provision of the monitoring system of the world’s highest dam: Gibe III in Ethiopia. Our instruments have been used for the structural monitoring of tunnel entrances, excavation areas, and tunnels and buildings surrounding excavation areas.
Thanks to our specific experience in this field, our instruments have been requested to monitor the New Foster Station in Florence and the excavation site of the underground crossing of Florence (High Velocity Project). Thanks to our solutions, all important parameters are monitored in real time, with accuracy and precision and all tests required by Italian and international technical regulations are executed.
