Mont-Blanc Tunnel’s radio coverage renewal awarded to SEE TELECOM

The renewal of Mont-Blanc Tunnel’s radio coverage system has been awarded to the temporary consortium SEE TELECOM / SAITEL TELECOMUNICAZIONI in June 2017.

To enhance the global security of the tunnel crossing, GEIE TMB decided to give its confidence to the European leader of radio coverage systems in confined areas SEE TELECOM, and the Italian leader of radio infrastructure’s installation and maintenance SAITEL TELECOMUNICAZIONI.

Mont-Blanc Tunnel is one the longest in the world. Opened in 1965, the 11,6 km length needs 12 minutes at 60 km/h to be crossed. Since the dramatic accident in 1999, this is one of the most modern and safe tunnel in the world, to secure one the most important road between France and Italy across the Alps.

The scope of work is to enhance the following 26 services FM, VHF and UHF :

  • 3 TETRAPOL VHF
  • 6 Italian FM Channels
  • 6 French FM Channels
  • 1 UHF
  • 10 TETRA UHF Services

A new monitoring system SEE AMCE, and a new emergency messages insertion system SEE BICE, fully virtualized, will be installed in the full redundant GEIE TMB‘s computer servers.

The commissioning is scheduled before Summer 2018.

Transition from ISO9001:2008 to ISO9001:2015

SEE TELECOM validated its transition from ISO9001 version 2008 to ISO9001 version 2015 without remarks, after the quality audit managed by SGS the 3-4 July 2017.

The new version of the standard brings the user a number of benefits:

  • Puts greater emphasis on leadership engagement
  • Helps address organizational risks and opportunities in a structured manner
  • Uses simplified language and a common structure and terms, which are particularly helpful to organizations using multiple management systems, such as those for the environment, health & safety, or business continuity
  • Addresses supply chain management more effectively
  • Is more user-friendly for service and knowledge-based organizations

We are very proud that our quality management system fulfills the ISO9001:2015 requirements to be more efficient and improve customer satisfaction.

Visite du Gouverneur du Brabant-Wallon
