Following an international tender, TUNN3L JV I / S (a joint venture between the leading companies HOCHTIEF and VINCI), awarded the automation of the new Copenhagen metro stations to AS HELLAS. On 14/7/2020 the agreement for the automation of the five new stations and two shaft sites was signed between AS HELLAS and TUNN3L. A large project of Industrial and Building Automation in the capital of Denmark.
With high reliability and as little as two minutes between the driverless trains, the metro in Copenhagen has been voted the best in the world several times. Each day, about 180,000 passengers travel with it.
Metroselskabet, (a partnership owned by the City of Copenhagen, the Danish Government, and the City of Frederiksberg), has the overall responsibility for the operation and the extensions of the Copenhagen Metro. With the innovative Cityringen and the Nordhavn expansion under its belt, Metroselskabet is expanding the metro system to Sydhavn. Five new stations will be ready by 2024, connecting this southern part of Copenhagen with the city’s metro system.
This is a huge project as Metro constructions are international mega-projects that require great experience, precision, and know-how. TUNN3L JV I/S will be delivering this construction to Metroselskabet.
AS HELLAS prevailed in the international tender based on its economic proposal and technical study, as well as on the experience in similar projects (Tempi valley and Egnatia Road Tunnels, and Industrial and Building Automation projects).
