“We see how digitalization is gaining momentum everywhere, also in the construction industries, as demands for higher safety, sustainability and productivity increase.

The suite of Mobilaris Mining Intelligence products has revolutionized mining worksites globally with intuitive real-time decision support systems that create value at all company levels. It includes planning, productivity, situational awareness in 3D, reporting and safety tools. Mobilaris Tunneling Intelligence dramatically improves traceability and enables planning and scheduling in real-time by data from the ongoing operations.

“With the background from the technology-agnostic underground mining solutions we have adapted and developed them to fit the specific needs in tunneling construction. The new tunneling portfolio will dramatically increase safety and production control. The products have already shown great improvements for the contractors,” says Håkan Bolsöy, Business Development Manager at Epiroc, head of Mobilaris Tunneling Intelligence portfolio.

Veidekke Entrepenør AS will use Epiroc’s Mobilaris Tunneling Intelligence solutions to improve productivity in a tunnel project north of Oslo in Norway.

“The tools from Epiroc give us an excellent possibility to create digital shift reports while working. It saves us a lot of time since it replaces manual reporting. In addition, we get valuable data enabling us to find and fix time-waste. The real-time overview of our resources helps us in planning out our progression”, says Bernt-Olav Berger, System responsible at Veidekke. Veidekke Entreprenør AS is a Scandinavian tunnel contractor operating since 1936.
