Optimas Sofrasar Tunnel Division, a leading supplier of fastener solutions for pre-cast concrete tunnels, has enjoyed a positive experience at the 15th Association Française des Tunnels et de l’Espace Souterrain (AFTES) International Conference. Held every three years, the event gathers major players in the tunnelling and underground sectors to discuss upcoming projects and innovations shaping the industry.

Optimas’ Sofrasar Tunnel Division specialises in providing a range of bespoke or standardised bolting systems, dowel systems, centring systems and shear dowels, grout-lift sockets, guiding rods and packers plus precast accessories and security systems to the industry. Utilising a strong supply structure with in-house design and development capabilities, Optimas Sofrasar Tunnel Products provides innovative solutions to reach contractor technical and budget requirements. For example, the business recently supplied a multitude of new pre-cast concrete fastening solutions for the ongoing Doha IDRIS project, a multi-billion-dollar scheme to improve Doha’s drainage for the 2022 World Cup.

The exhibition was held in Paris this year due to the market buzz around the Grand Paris project, which aims to make Paris better equipped to accommodate future economic and population growth. A key component of this is overhauling Paris’ transport network - specifically its metro line. With real-estate in Paris at a premium, tunnels are brought to the fore, with Optimas Sofrasar Tunnel Products confirming that they will be providing pre-cast tunnel fastening solutions to support this domestic transport infrastructure initiative.

Mathieu Janes, Sales Engineer at Optimas Sofrasar Tunnel Division, commented after the event: “The conference provides a unique opportunity to touch base with the industry, allowing us to meet with our existing and potential customers. We have a number of large projects in the pipeline, so we took the chance to discuss project requirements and the future steps towards supporting these projects. The exhibition is also a great platform to show our latest innovations, which generated a lot of interest. Our stand was well attended, with worldwide and domestic customers eager to learn how we could further support their needs.”
