Fire Protection and Safety in Tunnels conference 2018

12th & 13th September 2018 (11th September – Workshop/Site visit)

The Fire Protection and Safety in Tunnels team would like to thank everyone who joined us at our 2017 edition in Bergen. Once again FPST proved to be a must attend fixture in the tunnelling calendar, bringing together tunnel owners and operators, researchers, solution providers and fire safety experts to gather and share best practice, risk minimisation strategies and the technological advances which protect tunnel infrastructure and passenger safety across the continent.

We’ll be heading back to Norway in 2018 to celebrate our 10th anniversary, allowing us to practically explore some of the most advanced tunnel projects in Europe. The event will, as always, welcome the greatest tunnelling minds from across Europe to explore latest research, innovation and implementation to enhance safety and minimise fire risk.

Although the core focus for the event lies in Europe, 2018 will also gather global leaders to look at alternative approaches to tunnel fire safety. This forms our key strength, in that we gather senior global leaders to debate the latest technology and processes to meet fire safety regulation.

This event welcomes the following representatives from across the world in order to learn the best trialled approaches to risk minimisation.

Highlights of 2017

The Fire Protection and Safety in Tunnels Conference not only focuses on pure opportunity, but on the steps the tunnelling industry has to take to protect both tunnel users and infrastructure. Each year we aim to create a comprehensive agenda, speaker line-up and audience to share ideas and inspire the innovations of the future and 2017 was no different.
