The Omnidots SWARM is a revolution in vibration monitoring!
If you are concerned with asset monitoring and the risk of vibrations causing damage to buildings and other structures, monitor vibrations with Omnidots.
The SWARM vibration monitor, together with the Geomotion Cloud web platform, provides you with insight into vibrations and helps you ensure that vibrations remain within the set limits. With Omnidots' vibration monitoring solutions, you are in control of all your projects, simply by using your smartphone, tablet or laptop.
This budget-friendly vibration monitor is more cost efficient than alternative solutions as well as being cutting edge technology with vastly improved precision data and reporting.
Measured in accordance with Australian Guidelines and combined with Geomotion Cloud software, Omnidots SWARM is the premier vibration monitoring solution available today.
The Queen's Wharf development in Brisbane is a GLS Monitoring project involving Geomotion and Land Surveys.
The project, part of the redevelopment of the Queen’s Wharf Precinct into a new world-class integrated resort, includes full automation of existing monitoring devices, as well as the installation of additional instruments including:
The project includes a staged warning system during Maritime works as part of the construction management plan, as well as monitoring of key structures including the Riverside Expressway.
In line with the current VIBRA-series, of which thousands are now in use worldwide, Geomotion partner, Profound BV, proudly introduce the new VIBRA+. Later this year the new standard VIBRA will also be available.
New features of the VIBRA+:
The Forrestfield-Airport Link (FAL) project will deliver an 8.5 km extension of the existing PTA urban rail network in Perth, Western Australia connecting the Midland Line, just past Bayswater Station, to Forrestfield, running underground in twin bored tunnels underneath the Swan River, Tonkin Highway and Perth Airport. The project will include three new stations, being: Redcliffe Station (located underground in Redcliffe), Airport Central Station (located underground at Perth Airport to service both domestic and international terminals) and Forrestfield Station.
The project will provide new rail services allowing a 20-minute rail journey from Forrestfield Station to the Perth CBD, improved bus networks for the eastern suburbs, foothills and surrounding communities as well as integration with the full Transperth bus and train network.
Redcliffe Station and Forrestfield Station will have rail-bus interchanges and up to 2,500 new car parking bays in total.
Description of Geomotion Works
Salini Impregilo S.p.A. - NRW Pty Ltd Joint Venture (SI- NRW JV) has entered into an agreement with Field Monitoring Services, Geomotion Australia, Land Surveys Joint Venture (FGLS JV) for the work of:
“SUPPLY, INSTALLATION, TESTING, OPERATION, MAINTENANCE OF GEOTECHNICAL AND SURVEY INSTRUMENTATION, INCLUSIVE OF MONITORING AND MIMS MANAGEMENT FOR FORRESTFIELD AIRPORT LINK PROJECT”.
Geomotion is working as a part of Joint Venture partner and broadly responsible for the followings works:
The Western Harbour Tunnel & Beaches Link is a planned north-south motorway along the current alignment of Wakehurst Parkway between Warringah Road, Frenchs Forest and the WestConnex motorway in Sydney. Up to 235 borehole sites will be tested in suburbs including Balgowlah, Seaforth, North Sydney, Neutral Bay and Cammeray. These investigations will feed into engineering design, final costings for the project and further route analysis.
As part of the geotechnical investigation, Geomotion was commissioned by AECOM to install Vibrating Wire Piezometers (VWP’s) at three inclined borehole locations along the proposed alignment. At each location, up to four VWP’s were installed at lengths of up to 160 m to monitor specified zones of ground water pressure. Each location was fitted with a Rippa 3G data logger with Stalker VW interface. Each of the four data loggers were custom designed and built to fit in the top of the borehole underneath a trafficable GATIC.
The data loggers have been programmed to upload hourly readings to a cloud based server. Data is presented showing fluctuations in water pressure (kPa), meters below ground level (mBGL), meters Australian Height Datum (mAHD), meters head of water (mH20).
Geomotion has also supplied and commissioned twelve water level data loggers. The system comprises a Sisgeo 4-20mA piezometer and Rippa 3G data logger installed within standpipe piezometers all housed beneath a trafficable GATIC. The water level is recorded hourly and uploaded on a 12 hourly basis, presented on Outpost’s online data management system. The system brings in data from nearby BOM stations to correct for barometric pressure changes and present rainfall data.
Geomotion have been commissioned to supply and install geotechnical instrumentation for the Waste Fines Storage Facility Project at Hope Downs 4 DSP Pit.
The Hope Downs 4 (HD4) mine is an iron ore mine located in the Pilbara region of Western Australia, 100 kilometres northwest of Newman. The mine is partly owned and operated by Rio Tinto Iron Ore (RTIO) and is one of twelve iron ore mines the company operates in the Pilbara.
UON’s client RTIO required an increase in capacity to the mining site's current waste fines facilities, necessary to continue plant operations. The works involved supply, install and construct the piping and waste fines facilities infrastructure including geotechnical monitoring equipment, relocation of existing infrastructure inclusive of the removal and replacement of HV and fibre optic cable, pumping equipment and an extension to the piping facilities inclusive of trenching earthworks.
The geotechnical monitoring system used the proven Vibrating Wire (VW) Technology on Piezometers and Pressure Cells running below ground conduit excavation along the pit bench attached to Load Sensing VW Node Dataloggers inside two Terminal Boxes located at the pit surface for remote monitoring.
The VW Piezometers were installed in 20L buckets filled with saturated waste fines slurry to measure and monitor pore water pressures. The VW Pressure Cells were installed on 500x200mm blinding concrete plinths, backfilled with waste fines, to determine the distribution, magnitude and directions of total soil pressure. The design will be used to monitor and control placement of ﬁll and essentially provide adequate warning of excess soil pressures into the operational life of the pit structure.
Geomotion Australia has recently completed the installation of 70 In-place Inclinometers, 30 Piezometers, ten Vibrating Wire Crackmeters and two Vibration Monitors as part of the Perth City Link Project.
The equipment is used to monitor the construction of the new underground bus station and monitors diaphragm wall deflection during excavation, the piezometric head of ground water during dewatering, movement across surface cracks on existing tunnels and heritage structures and tunnel vibration.
All instrumentation is linked to the Loadsensing wireless mesh network which relays data to our web-based data presentation package, ARGUS. Through this system, the client has the capacity to receive the data in real time and be warned via SMS / Email should the instrumentation exceed the set alarm thresholds.
