StabiAlert sensors are used for long-term monitoring of the HABOG building (High-level radioactive waste treatment and storage building) in Borsele where canisters of nuclear waste are stored. Next to the existing building a second building is built for storing low-level radioactive waste from hospitals for example.
The safety requirements for the storage are extremely high, and therefore the effects of the new-build activities on the existing building are tracked by 10 sensors over a 3-year period.
The StabiAlert measurements have demonstrated hat the HABOG building is extremely stable. The accuracy of the sensors’ records is demonstrated by minimal daily deviations that are measured as result of heat expansion of thick walls caused by sunshine.
