MONTREAL, Oct. 29 /CNW Telbec/ - For the past year and a half, the
Champlain Bridge has been monitored on a round-the-clock basis using
European-based technology developed by the OSMOS Group. Some 500 major
structures throughout the world, including the Eiffel Tower, the Chunnel and
the Manhattan Bridge, are also being closely observed by this fibre-optic
system for assessing their behaviour in real time. Montreal is also an active
user of this solution (Girouard Bridge).
The media are invited to come and meet OSMOS's president, Bernard Hodac,
who will describe the technology that his group has developed. Direct hook-ups
will display the behaviour of the Champlain Bridge and another major structure
located in the United States.
Date: Tuesday, October 30, 2007
Time: 2:00 p.m.

OSMOS is the world leader in structure monitoring. Its technologies are
used in detecting and preventing problems and provide valued information for
safely managing such structures as bridges and overpasses.
Not to miss: demo and photo op
Please note that because of logistic problems, we must cancel the visit
of a system installation that was previously announced. A live demo of the
technology will be made during the press conference.
