PÖYRY PLC Press release 6 February 2012
Pöyry's Urban & Mobility business group has been awarded an assignment to provide technical consulting services to ASFINAG in Austria for the project S10 - Mühlviertler Schnellstrasse - Tunnel Götschka. The value of the assignment for Pöyry is EUR 2.4 million. The order value has been booked into the 4 quarter 2011 order stock. The project will be carried out in cooperation with Dibit Messtechnik Gmbh and bf:gh ZT GmbH. The project started in January 2012 and is scheduled to be completed by the middle of 2014.
Pöyry's services include 3D displacement measurement, tunnel scanner documentation, geological documentation and consulting as well as the tunnel management system 2DOC. 2DOC is tunnel management software developed by Pöyry in Austria, currently used in various large scale tunnel projects, such as Tunnel Emisor Oriente in Mexico. This software will be used for managing and analyzing data collected in the course of a tunnel project.
"Tunnelling and other infrastructure projects are becoming more complex. This requires a comprehensive and interdisciplinary evaluation for geological and geotechnical situations and risks. Availability of reliable data saves time during the project and provides good basis for risk management and decision making", explains Alexander Radinger, Managing Director of Pöyry Infra Austria GmbH.
Pöyry has extensive experience in 3D displacement measurements, geological documentation and consulting for tunnel projects worldwide. This project will strengthen Pöyry's position as the leading tunnel expert.
