A partnership between
Apave and Sercel
AP’Structure has been developed as a result of the partnership between Apave and Sercel, which brings together the strengths of both companies including :
Sercel’s expertise as the world leader in seismic equipment, and the capabilities of its S-lynks solution for continuous structural monitoring. With its embedded ultra-sensitive QuietSeis® sensor, S-lynks can measure a structure’s ambient noise signature without the requirement to restrict access. This fully connected, wireless system is self-sustaining and can be deployed on all types of structures. The recorded data is then streamed to the cloud for processing and is immediately accessible for remote analysis.
Expert analysis and interpretation of the recorded monitoring data by Apave’s engineers and technicians using proprietary algorithms. This dynamic data is used to understand the behaviour of a structure, monitor its deterioration over time, trigger alerts if anomalies are detected that are not visible to the naked eye, and propose corrective measures.
Emmanuelle Dubu, Sercel CEO, said : “We are very pleased to launch AP’Structure, deploying our S-lynks solution, together with our partner Apave. The aging of infrastructure caused by natural and human phenomena requires real-time monitoring to ascertain and extend the health of these buildings and structures. As the leading specialist in high-accuracy seismic sensors, Sercel is uniquely qualified to deliver solutions that overcome the challenges of predictive structural maintenance.”
Philippe Maillard, Apave CEO, said: “With the launch of our AP’Structure solution Apave and Sercel have sealed a strategic and innovative partnership bringing together innovative technology and proven expertise for buildings and infrastructure. AP’Structure will enable operators to monitor the integrity of buildings and structures in real time so that they can anticipate and prioritize maintenance operations and prolong their life cycle. A concrete response to the strong expectations expressed by both public and private clients".
I am delighted that Apave, thanks to this partnership and this unique method, is positioning itself as a benchmark player in this field
