Himmelreich tunnel / Central Control Room South (ÜZ Süd)

Partner: Dürr Austria GmbH
Location: Hausmannstätten



  • Himmelreich tunnel
  • 4 redundant PLC Station
  • 3 local PLC Station
  • 6.500 external data points

Central Control Room South

  • Redundant Solution Server
  • 2 redundant Multimonitor Operator stations with multi-touch
  • Redundant database server
  • Interface and control of video wall (Video Survillance and tunnel operation)
  • 25.000 data points

The Himmelreich tunnel is located at the B73 and is on of five tunnels to be operated and maintained via the Central Control Room South.

It is a by-pass for the village of Hausmannstätten with a length of 1,4 km.

Besides the control system for the tunnel, the equipment for the Central Control Room South – owned by the styrian government - was the second challenge within this project.

Via this Central Control Room all southern styrian tunnels – except the highway tunnels - are operated and maintained, these are:

  • Tunnel Feldkirchen
  • Tunnel Grabengürtel B67A
  • Tunnel Gnas-Gniebing B68
  • Tunnel Voitsberg B70
  • Tunnel Himmelreich B73

which sums up to more than 25.000 data points to be integrated into one central control system – XAMControl.

One highlight of this project is the totally new operating concept that was realized. All equipment can be controlled via multi-touch operator stations, each equipped with 4 monitors.

This innovative approach leads to new approaches in operators interaction. All operator stations are realized using a hot-standby technology for realizing and securing high safety and perfect availability.
