Modernisation of the Tingstad Tunnel in Sweden
Eitech has been appointed by SICE Nordics to install the technical systems for the Tingstad Tunnel.
This tunnel, one of southern Sweden’s most important road transport links, will be renovated inside and out from spring 2022 onward. For this turnkey contract, Eitech will design and install conduits, the electrical supply and fire alarms in this 455-metre-long underground tunnel linking Hisingen and Göteborg.
“The project also includes the dismantling and installation of lighting, ventilation, traffic systems and cameras.”
The Tingstad Tunnel, with its daily traffic of around 120,000 vehicles, presents a high level of complexity, with confined spaces and logistical challenges aplenty, but Eitech’s technical skills and broad experience of major tunnel projects should ensure the project is a success.
By December 2023, when the renovation is complete and the Swedish transport authorities reopen the tunnel to traffic, traffic safety and accessibility will have been significantly improved.
