SJVN Ltd signs MoU with IIT Patna to use advanced geological models in tunnelling projects

New Delhi: SJVN Limited has signed a Memorandum of Understanding (MoU) with the Indian Institute of Technology Patna (IIT Patna) to use advanced geological models in SJVN's tunnelling projects to significantly reducing time and cost overruns.

One of the key outcomes of this partnership will be the development of predictive analytics algorithms, the Ministry of Power said in a statement.

“These algorithms, leveraging integrated geotechnical data, will forecast potential risks and provide early warning systems specifically tailored for tunnelling projects. Such proactive measures are expected to substantially mitigate time and cost overruns during project execution,” the ministry said.

Chairperson & Managing Director, SJVN, Geeta Kapur said that the primary focus of the MoU is to develop cutting-edge methodologies which integrate diverse geotechnical data sources.

“These would include geological surveys, borehole data, geophysical measurements and monitoring data from projects of SJVN,” she said.

The collaboration also aims to evaluate the intricate relationship between overburden and deformation, thereby enhancing the evaluation and design of support systems crucial for tunnelling projects.

By harnessing integrated geotechnical data and 3D geological models, SJVN and IIT Patna aim to identify and analyze potential risks and hazards.

"SJVN and IIT Patna are committed to driving sustainable development and technological excellence through this strategic partnership," said the ministry.
