airteam secures contract in connection with new underground line in Copenhagen


airteam has secured a major ventilation and cooling contract in connection with construction of a new underground line to Copenhagen’s Sydhavn district. The project includes installations at five stations and two crossings.

airteam is carrying out the project for the contractor TUNN3L JV, a joint venture between the French company Vinci and the German Hochtief. The project is expected to be finished in 2024, with the start scheduled for 2021.

“This is an interesting project that will mean a lot for Copenhagen and its inhabitants for years to come. I’m proud that airteam has been chosen as a ventilation contractor in the construction of the new underground line to Copenhagen’s Sydhavn. This is a project that includes both cooling, traditional ventilation facilities and a solution for the tunnels’ fire ventilation system.

airteam was chosen based on our vast know-how, which is the result of many years of work in comfort and industrial ventilation, and not least based on our previous ventilation contract carried out at the underground at Nordhavn Station. As we accumulate further competence in this field, we will be well positioned for future infrastructure projects in Denmark, Sweden and other Nordic countries,” says Poul Pihlmann, CEO of airteam.

“This contract award is a proof of the strong position airteam has in the Danish market. As airteam has grown and delivered high levels of quality and customer satisfaction, we are now being invited to bid on the largest ventilation projects in Denmark. We remain optimistic about the future of our Danish operations, and about the potential to build the same position in the growing Swedish operation,” says Christian Johansson Gebauer, Head of Business Area Construction & Services, Ratos.
