Integrated Tunnel Management

SICE is a company that develops and implements integral solutions for the management and control of intelligent transport systems.

It installs safety, control and electro-mechanical systems in tunnels and oversees their maintenance and operation.

For this purpose it offers an integral centralized tunnel management system used to control and monitor all tunnel systems and to guarantee maximum levels of safety and operation during both routine management and in emergency situations.

To date the company has implemented its technology to bring smart systems to transport infrastructure in over 346 km of tunnels; it is one of the primary companies to provide services related to the development and implementation of integral tunnel control and management solutions. SICE has a portfolio of numerous important references in this sector in the United States, Colombia, Chile, Australia, Spain and Portugal.
