Soile Hanttu (MSc. Eng.) began work on the West Metro as a project engineer on 7 August 2018. Hanttu is working on subcontracts – including the Metro’s lifts, escalators, fire roller shutter doors, fire sliding doors, sliding doors, toilet modules and smoke extraction fans. Automation procurements will be repeated in the same manner for all five new metro stations and the Sammalvuori depot.
Hanttu has long experience of the energy sector as a former employee of ÅF-Consult Oy, where she was involved in power plant projects. Her career has included the Tammervoima utility power plant project and she has also been involved in several power plant projects abroad.
“I’ve have been involved in project work for many years, which will be useful in this post. The scale and multifaceted nature of the West Metro project were what interested me. The project feels particularly important to me as a resident of Espoo,” Hanttu says.
She was impressed by the team spirit and busy mindset of the project during her first two weeks in her new post.
“We seem to have a good team and ‘can-do’ attitude,” Hanttu comments.
