The Sint-Anna tunnel is a pedestrian and bicycle tunnel that runs under the Scheldt in the city of Antwerp. Construction started in 1931 and the tunnel opened in 1933. This 572 meter long tunnel connects the city of Antwerp with the Left Bank and is equipped with a lift and 4 authentic wooden escalators on both sides. The complete monitoring and control of the tunnel takes place both locally and remotely and was automated by Agidens Infra Automation in 2002. In 2009 the drive for the escalators was renewed and in 2018 we started the renovation of the frequency control of the escalators.
- Infra Automation
Agidens Infra Automation carried out the St Anna’s tunnel project as an EPCM contractor and was therefore responsible for the engineering, preparation with an extra focus on safety and the implementation of the escalators’ new frequency drive. The implementation included securing the parts to be replaced, disconnecting the old drive, placing the new drive, commissioning and delivery.
