Imtech announces US$57.5 million technology orders

Imtech has announced that it recently has secured orders worth more than EUR43 million (US$57.5 million) for traffic technology systems in the Netherlands, Sweden, Russia, Ireland and Denmark. At Maastricht in the Netherlands, the company will be providing the design and implementation of all the technical systems in 2.3km (1.5 miles) ‘The Green Carpet’ (De Groene Loper) Tunnel, which is currently under construction. Part of the A2 motorway, it will be the first double-deck tunnel in the Netherlands to have four tunnel tubes, two above and two below, with two traffic lanes in each tube. Approximately 80% of the current traffic volume will run underground, which will considerably improve the city’s traffic flow and safety. Imtech will provide the tunnel and traffic technical installations, including the overall management, monitoring and control systems.

Imtech will be implementing a high-tech Motorway Traffic Management (MTM) system that will improve traffic safety on the E18 motorway in Sweden, which is an important road link in the northern part of Stockholm. The road, which features two tunnels, is used daily by 50,000 vehicles. The company will provide the route’s users with up-to-date traffic information and instructions, via about 200 fully-automated Variable Message Signs (VMS) connected by a fiber network, which will also be connected to the information displays to be placed in and outside the tunnels.

Following two successful pilot program, the company has been commissioned to supply 200 intelligent traffic controllers for the upgrade to Moscow’s traffic control system, which will be in preparation for the eventual implementation of an adaptive traffic management system. It will be the first phase of continued development that has been planned for the coming years, which will also include new traffic control centers and fiber networks to improve the city’s traffic mobility.

In 2012, Imtech secured a multiyear maintenance contract with the City of Dublin to maintain and manage its traffic signal services. Following its success on this contract, the company has seen a number of new orders in Ireland, including the maintenance of the technical traffic infrastructure at Dublin airport and an operational contract for the technical infrastructure on the city’s Samuel Beckett Bridge.

Last year, Imtech was commissioned to provide the technical maintenance of the infrastructure for all 365 intersections in Copenhagen and to supply a high-tech traffic management system aimed at making the Danish capital fully CO2 neutral by 2025. Now, new orders have been received for supplying a high-tech Road Monitoring System, installing the company’s ImFlow technology at 10 intersections, cooperative communication between buses and traffic controllers and prioritization of cycle traffic. Announcing all the new orders, ImTech’s CEO, René van Bruggen, commented, “Our smart traffic technology solutions are allowing us to contribute to better traffic management in Europe, which will improve traffic flow as well as the safety of road users. Our footprint in Europe is growing.”
