Pöyry to supervise Brenner Base Tunnel site
Pöyry is to provide site supervision services for the project connecting Innsbruck Railway Station into the Brenner Base Tunnel (BBT).
“This project further strengthens Pöyry’s position in Austria as one of the leading engineering companies delivering high quality site supervision services,” says Thomas Kriesch, Pöyry’s president of regional operations in Austria.
When completed, BBT will be the longest underground rail link in the world. After adding the already existing Innsbruck railway bypass, the entire tunnel system through the Alps will be 64 kilometres long.
The tunnel is an important part of the trans-European transport network corridor connecting the Nordics with Southern Europe.
The value of the assignment ordered by ÖBB Infrastruktur is not disclosed. Pöyry’s services are due to start in January 2017 and scheduled for completion in summer 2019.
