As summer begins, Länsimetro’s workforce is reinforced: Raimo Kaunismäki, M. Sc. (Tech.), has started work as Länsimetro’s Technical director on 5 June and Markku Ojansuu as the Finnoo station Real Estate Development Manager on 1 June.
Kaunismäki comes to Länsimetro from Empower Oy, where he was responsible for telecommunications projects in Finland and Sweden. Kaunismäki also has experience related to metro systems: when working for Rejlers Oy, he was involved in the Helsinki metro automation project and acted as the automation project manager.
At Länsimetro, Kaunismäki will continue working on similar themes: he is responsible for electrification and automation of the metro, among other things.
“I expect the work to be interesting and challenging”, Kaunismäki says.
Markku Ojansuu, who begins work as Finnoo’s real estate Development Manager, comes from Oilon Oy, which specialises in environmental technology, where he worked as a project manager on refrigeration plant and heat recovery projects. One of the things that was enticing about the metro was the extent of the project.
“I like projects with a long life cycle and I look forward to new interesting tasks”, says Ojansuu.
Ojansuu and Kaunismäki both got to start work in Länsimetro’s new project office in Olari, which is located even closer to Länsimetro’s phase two worksites.
“I have a very good feeling about this after less than a week of working here. We have wonderful office premises – the same quality as the metro will be”, Ojansuu hails.
