Event: The Next Generation of Civil Infrastructure Management

Share this post:

On December 8th, 14:00-15:15, Bjarne Jørgensen from Sund & Bælt Holding A/S and I will present at the digital event “The Next Generation of Civil Infrastructure Management – The Story of Sund and Baelt“.

You will learn how Sund & Bælt has implemented IBM Maximo for Civil Infrastructure to optimize their asset management, maintenance and inspections to avoid accidents, increase productivity, expand lifetime, and reduce CO2 emission.

In the video below, you can get a sneak peek of the collaboration and the solution before you attend the digital event:

I have always admired the Great Belt bridge. It is the third-longest suspension bridge in the world, the top of the pylons is Denmark highest point (254 meters above the road) and the two anchors blocks carrying the bridge have twice the weight of the entire Danish population (640.000 tons).

As a result of our partnership, the expected lifetime of the Great Belt Bridge has increased by 50-100 years. For the Great Belt Bridge alone the reduction is 750.000 tons corresponding to the yearly CO2 emission from 52.000 households. At the same time, the costs of its asset management operations are expected to decrease by 2% yearly until 2023.

However, this is only the beginning. IBM has launched Maximo for Civil Infrastructure in 170 countries. The solution will drive digital transformation for operators and constructors of bridges, rail, tunnels and roads all over the world. In that connection, the presentation about IBM and Sund & Bælt’s collaboration is followed by an industry insight session with Bostjan Gabrijelcic, Joe Saunders, Stephen Russo, Bjarne Jørgensen and myself.

I hope you will join us and we look forward to “seeing” you!
