TEKIA and Road tunnel safetyTunnel safety is one of TEKIA’s core activities since the company was founded in 1998. We developed the first operating manuals in line with the Spanish regulations, and have worked since then in over 600 tunnels in Spain and other countries (Mexico, Chile, Peru, Colombia, Ireland, Norway, Algeria, Egypt, etc.).
TEKIA’s multidisciplinary team of experts is made up of engineers who specialize in the use and upkeep of tunnel safety equipment (evacuation, power, lighting, ventilation, fire protection, access control, surveillance, communications, etc.) and are vastly experienced in all the stages involved in tunnel engineering: planning, design, building, commissioning and operation.
