Pöyry Oyj: Pöyry awarded engineering, project management and site supervision services assignment for renovation work in the Gamsen Tunnel, Switzerland

PÖYRY PLC Press Release 6 October 2015 12.00 pm (EEST)

Pöyry awarded engineering, project management and site supervision services
assignment for renovation work in the Gamsen Tunnel, Switzerland

The Federal Roads Office (FEDRO) has awarded Pöyry with the engineering,
project management and site supervision services assignment for the complete
renewal of all operational and safety equipment in the Gamsen Tunnel close to
Visp, in the canton of Valais, Switzerland. Pöyry's scope of services
includes the conceptual design, detailed engineering, management of
permitting procedures, tender support, site supervision and commissioning
services for the completion of all necessary operational and safety equipment
and signalling renewal works of the client. Work will begin in October 2015
and is scheduled for completion in 2018.

The Gamsen Tunnel is 1074 metres long and forms part of the A 9 motorway,
which runs from Ballaigues on the French border through Lausanne, Vevey, Sion
and Brig-Glis to Gondo on the Italian border. As part of the complete
renovation project, the Gamsen Tunnel will be brought up to the same
technical standard as the adjacent Eyholz Tunnel, which is currently under
construction. This means systems such as signals, communication and control
technology will be aligned in both tunnels, ensuring a standardised
operations and maintenance concept.

"We are delighted to be involved in the complete renovation of the Gamsen
Tunnel. With our broad expertise and highly qualified experts, we are
confident that we will be able to contribute to the successful, on-schedule
conclusion of this important project", says Nicola Norghauer, Pöyry's Head of
Transport in Switzerland.
