The project in brief

The cable tunnel between Pandan Terminal Building and Seraya Terminal Building is an essentially straight land cable tunnel with no further deviations throughout the 2.7km tunnel with 2 bores except the inclusion of vertical tunnel shafts at each end. It is located between Pandan Terminal Bld. and Seraya Terminal Bld.

Each tunnel bore has 4 sets of cables which are fire-rated, oil-filled, sand packed and below the walkway but one set of cable is above ground but fire-rated, oil-filled and sand packed as well.

Why was a VID Fire-Kill solution chosen?

The customer, SPPG Singapore, chose a VID Fire-Kill solution because of its cost effectiveness in actual system cost, assembly and maintenance, and, not least, the technical properties proven by the fire test.
