INTEGRAL has been monitoring the eclipsing X-ray pulsar for over one year. We present the results of these observations. The 38 s pulsations have been detected. A careful analysis of the eclipse lightcurve allows to model the density profile in the outer atmosphere and stellar wind of the companion, a B supergiant. We also find that the models favor the inclination of the system close to the lower bound, i.e i=60-70 degrees.
