FinMeas measuring devices were used in a major harbour renovation project in Västerås, Sweden. The renovation was part of the Swedish Maritime Administration’s Mälaren project, which includes dredging of watersheds and building a canal sluice in Södertälje. The dredging was organised simultaneously with the construction work in Västerås harbour.
An important aim of the Västerås project was to enable the harbour to handle large vessels after the renovation beginning in 2018 with further advancements all the way to 2021.
FinMeas automatic inclinometers were used to monitor the safety of the Västerås project. Even small displacements in critical objects can cause safety risks, which can have serious effects. Inclinometers monitor the possible displacements in ground and structures and automatically notify if there are any changes.
