Total control of a tunnel project is currently possible with intelligent self-monitoring tools. The implementation of operational parameters of the TBM with other related issues around the construction process provides high quality information useful for the performance improvement. In this paper, the authors present a novel and breakthrough data management platform developed by ACCIONA Infrastructures aimed to be applied in mechanized tunneling: the "TBM Control data Center (TCC)". On-going monitoring, powerful data acquisition, remote management, failures surveillance and adaptive operation behavior are some of the main benefits of the TCC system.
