Austrian tunnel elements for the Metro in Copenhagen

30. January 2012

Large contract for Mobil Baustoffe GmbH

The Austrian company Mobil Baustoffe GmbH that belongs to the Strabag Group, will supply 121.000 concrete segments for the Metro City Ring in Copenhagen. The enlargement of the Metro system in den Danish Capital will consist of two 15 km long tubes with a total of 17 stations. It is scheduled to be completed in 2018.

Mobil Baustoffe GmbH will produce the tunnel segments in the North German island of Ruegen in the Baltic Sea. From the ferry port of Sassnitz on Ruegen the concrete segments will be shipped to Copenhagen. Besides the good infrastructure and large production areas, the main reason for choosing the island of Ruegen as production site was the short sea route to Copenhagen.

As a spokesperson of Mobil Baustoffe GHmbH announced, the company will invest around EUR 4 Mio. in the plant and will rely on in-house specialists.

The production period is estimated to take 3,5 years and will start in April 2012.
