FinMeas to monitor foundation works in large-scale Swedish maritime infrastructure project

FinMeas has secured an agreement with Züblin Scandinavia AB for the monitoring programme of the foundations work for the creation of a new lock and the expansion of the Södertälje canal located in the vicinity South of Stockholm.

The agreement comprises water level monitoring, displacement monitoring of retaining walls, force monitoring of struts and force monitoring of retaining wall anchors. The monitoring programme is scheduled to be operational for 24 months.

The project to build a new lock and to enlarge the Södertälje canal is part of the Mälar project with a purpose of improving maritime safety and accessibility in public waterways through the canal to Port of Köping and Port of Västerås.

“We are thrilled that Züblin chose us as the contractor for the monitoring programme, our second common large-scale infrastructure monitoring programme in less than one year. We’re eager to get started to use our expertise and professional approach to help Zublin increase safety and reliability of the foundation works in Södertälje”, says Sami Ylönen, CEO of FinMeas.

Finnish monitoring consultant, FinMeas, monitors the foundation works at Trafikplats Akalla for Züblin at the E4 Förbifart Stockholm project, as well as displacements at Port of Västerås linked to the Mälar project.
