Project Description

Year: 2017

Client : City of Namur

Napoleon is said to have described the network of tunnels beneath the Citadel of Namur as ‘the termite’s nest of Europe’.

As part of the implementation of a new exhibition in part of the tunnel network, Inytium has installed lighting, video projection, atmospheric audio, communications networks and programmable logic controllers.

This involved numerous technical challenges, including a very damp environment, long distances and the constant concern for visitor safety.

Working in collaboration with the Ka Scéno scenography agency, Inytium has installed a centralised supervision and management system based on a Medialon controller, linked by a fibre optic network to decentralised units operated by Schneider programmable logic controllers. A clear distinction was maintained between safety-related and scenographic aspects to optimise the quality of the installation and improve its operational reliability.
