One of our reference cases

Vargfors Embankment Dam

The embankment dam at Vargfors is about 700m long and situated parallel to the river Skellefteälven river. In 2001 a support toe berm was constructed as well as new drainage ditch. In connection to this work an optical fibre cable was installed at the dam toe. The fibre optic cable is placed in the bottom of the ditch, just upstream of the two drainage pipes in order to allow temperature measurements of the water that seeps through the dam and out into the drainage ditch. The objective with the fibre installation is to detect seepage areas with DTS, as a complement to conventional seepage monitoring in weirs.
