Master of Technology – awards ceremony

On 14 October 2019 in Legnica, a ceremonial XLIII Days of Science and Technology Gala was held, during which awards in the competition of the Master of Copper Mining Technology were presented. It was an opportunity for SHM System to celebrate, together with KGHM Polska Miedź S.A., The Hydrotechnical Plant Branch, receiving the award in the competition organised by the SNT NOT “Copper Belt” Federation Council.

The project entitled “The use of the 3DSensor sensor to build an innovative system for monitoring the technical condition of the reinforced concrete structure of the overflow tower located in the OUOW Żelazny Most tank” was honoured.

– The uniqueness of the Iron Bridge forces us to search for and develop unique solutions. KGHM Polska Miedź is a pioneer in the application of innovative measurement systems, not only in Poland, but also worldwide. An example of such activities is, among others, the search for opportunities to use DFOS (distributed fibre optic sensing) techniques to analyse the safety of tank buildings – Radosław Stach, Vice-President of the Management Board for Production, stressed on the portal

The system was built on the basis of the 3DSensor fibre optic displacement sensor – the first composite fibre optic sensor, enabling measurement of vertical and horizontal displacement of the surrounding medium (e.g. soil, concrete) over distances of up to 120 km. One metre of 3DSensor sensor replaces up to 200 traditional displacement sensors.
