The Länsimetro HVAC and electrical contracts are divided into station-specific contracts and the underground tunnel contract. The HVAC contract for the entire tunnel line from Ruoholahti to Matinkylä was awarded to Skanska Talonrakennus Oy. The value of the contract is EUR 6.7M. The HVAC contract for the Lauttasaari station was won by EMC Talotekniikka Oy. The value of the contract is EUR 3.5M. The 2.8M electrical contract for the Lauttasaari station was awarded to Quattroservices Oy.
Construction and building services engineering contracts for most of the remaining stations and the entire underground line will be awarded later this autumn.
– Once again we managed to secure excellent operators for electrical and HVAC work. This autumn will be extremely busy in terms of procurement because excavation work will be finished next year, and work on the stations will begin immediately after that. We are currently looking for high-quality operators with extensive experience, says Matti Kokkinen, CEO of Länsimetro Oy.
Almost 60 per cent – some 16,300 metres – of the underground tunnels have already been excavated.
– At the moment, we are making excellent progress with the excavation work. In August we made a new all-time record by excavating 1.6 kilometres of tunnel. The standard is about a kilometre per month, says Matti Kokkinen, CEO of Länsimetro Oy.
