Olympia Odos participates in the program “Horizon 2020: Research and Innovation Actions (Horizon 2020 RIA)”, with the project COnstruction-phase diGItal Twin mOdel (COGITO). COGITO aims at accelerating the digitalization in lean construction as a steppingstone to achieve the industrialization of the construction sector, by taking advantage of the Digital Twins standard and creating virtual copies of the various procedures and simulating various project progress scenarios.
Thanks to real-time data collection tools it is possible to make valid predictions relevant to the prevention of accidents, structural tests and identification of problems. The COGITO toolkit introduces a new concept regarding the management of complex systems/ecosystems to be used in the construction and management of infrastructure projects. The program was launched in November 2020 and will last for 36 months.
Safe and Secure Truck Parking Area (SSTPA) in Akrata
Olympia Odos participates in the action “Development of nine Safe and Secure Truck Parking Areas in Greece” together with the Innovation and Networks Executive Agency (INEA) within the framework of the funding instrument Connecting Europe Facility (CEF) for Transport. It aims at dealing with the current lack of safe truck parkings and at improving the safety along the national road network. Within the context of this initiative, an existing truck parking area in Akrata will be upgraded, thanks to the installation of cameras and guarding systems, up to the Silver level and will have a capacity of 45 trucks. Sanitary infrastructure (WC and showers) will be installed in this parking area, as well as a resting area, an Internet room and a control room. At the same time, an web platform will be developed to optimize the use of these areas by making reservations for the parking lots. The project, of a total worth of €2.5 million euros, started in August 2020 and is expected to be completed by the end of 2022.
