The new contract is the subsequent step of the project where Eitech will be coordinating all technical installations such as electrical solutions, pipe, ventilation and control systems at the station.

VINCI Energies Europe managing director Bernard Latour said: “The involvement of Eitech and particularly with this contract extension in the West Link project, validates our strategy of growth and consolidation in the Scandinavian markets, as well as the interest of Eitech acquisition, made at the end of 2017.

“This success is a perfect illustration of our international development strategy.”

The West Link project is a planned 8km-long double track railway system, which will include a 6km railway tunnel underneath Gothenburg.

The tunnel will include three underground stations at Gothenburg Central Station, Haga and Korsvägen.

Once completed, the West Link will increase accessibility and will offer connectivity to the commuter rail systems that passes through Gothenburg.
