As part of swissnuclear seismic monitoring of their nuclear plants, deep borehole arrays were installed at three sites: Gösgen (KKG), Benzau (KKB), and Leibstadt (KKL). Swissnuclear offices in Olten housed the data center (ODC).
Design, install, and maintain a robust network of deep borehole arrays throughout northern Switzerland. The network will provide for continuous long-term data collection for research purposes and input update of probabilistic seismic hazard study.
Installed world’s deepest Hyposensor at 669m!
Designed and fabricated special borehole spider attachments to assure verticality while allowing glass bead pass-through.
Utilized special fiberglass reinforced casing for non-metallic section to enable Hyposensor compass orientation feature.
Implemented automatic processing and reporting tool AutoPro and SMA Reports.
