Eclipse Digital Media recently carried out a digital signage installation at the National Grid project office for the, Costain run, tunnelling programme under London.
The eight-year contract was awarded to Costain by the National Grid and the main purpose of the project is to help meet increased energy flows across the city. Costain approached Eclipse Digital Media with an idea of showing the progress of the drilling in real time at the National Grid project office and Energy Education Centre.
Eclipse, working in conjunction with National Grid and Costain, designed a Digital Signage content package that would show the two drilling rigs working their way under london in real time using data from the TIM (Tunnel Information Management) software and Google Maps.
“Eclipse Digital have provided Costain, at London Tunnels, with a valuable tool for communicating live production and progress data to both our key project staff and our client. These electronic signage units, at various locations within London, keep everyone on the project informed of the current live data and this is proving to be a very efficient communication tool.
Eclipse Digital have provided a very professional, high level of service, which has included technical assistance, support and installation. We have no hesitation of recommending the services of Eclipse Digital to any potential new customer and would be happy to showcase our installation as an example of their work.”
