Elbe Tunnel

An open, highly scalable AVEVA solution enables the Elbe Tunnel in Hamburg, Germany to continually modernise its facilities management system quickly.


  • Monitor and control traffic through the underwater tunnel, which averages 142,000 vehicles per day
  • Regulate tunnel ventilation, lighting, safety and emergency systems


  • The four-tunnel system includes approximately 850 control points
  • The tunnel is over 34 years old, and continual updates are required to keep the project up to date


  • An open, highly scalable system featuring AVEVA has enabled easy integration of technology additions and upgrades
  • Expansion of the facilities management system has become more cost effective and time efficient

"By using upward compatible, standard software from AVEVA, we were able – even in the first phase in 1996 – to lay the foundations for later expansions. There has never been a need for an expensive, time-consuming renewal of the InTouch application for version upgrades."

–Olaf Kolmer, Project Manager, Cegelec AT GmbH
