SJVN has inked a Memorandum of Understanding (MoU) with prestigious Indian
Institute of Technology Patna (IIT Patna) in the august presence of Sh. A.K Singh,
Director (Finance) SJVN and Sh. T.N Singh, Director IIT Patna.
Smt. Geeta Kapur, Chairman & Managing Director, SJVN said that this
collaboration aims to pioneer advanced geological models, significantly reducing time
and cost overruns in SJVN’s tunnelling projects. The primary focus of the MoU is to
develop cutting-edge methodologies to integrate diverse geotechnical data sources.
These include geological surveys, borehole data, geophysical measurements and
monitoring data from projects of SJVN. This 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.
One of the key outcomes of this partnership will be the development of predictive
analytics algorithms. 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.
On the occasion of MOU signing, Sh. R.K Gupta, CGM(Civil), Sh. Jitender Yadav,
GM (Finance), Sh. Hemant Kumar Shaklya, GM (Civil), Sh. Akshay Acharya, GM
(Geology) from SJVN and Professor A K Verma from IIT Patna were also present. SJVN
and IIT Patna are committed to driving sustainable development and technological
excellence through this strategic partnership.
