ABB will provide a ventilation system in the Alps
Technical rail systems are scheduled to be installed and operational by 2017. Once completed, an estimated 200 to 250 trains per day will travel through the tunnel.
Together with TLT Turbo GmbH (Germany), ABB represents a consortium that was awarded the project, which is worth about $45 million. The consortium is responsible for developing, producing and installing what will be the largest tunnel ventilation system ever built, providing fresh air for the entire tunnel network. ABB technologies will ensure it operates at the highest levels of reliability and energy efficiency.
“System reliability, safety and quality are critical in this tunnel project. The ventilation system meets ATG's highest safety requirements, while ensuring energy efficient operation,” said Veli-Matti Reinikkala, head of ABB’s Process Automation division. “This project demonstrates how our comprehensive solutions and application know-how developed in process industries can help improve efficiency of other operations.”
