The international designer and manufacturer of respiratory protection equipment (RPE) DEZEGA signed a contract with the MossIA ANS joint venture on the supply of its products. DEZEGA SCSRs will be used on construction of railway between Sandbukta – Moss – Såstad in Norway. The project owner is the Norwegian state-owned company Bane NOR, responsible for the national railway infrastructure.
MossIA ANS is a joint venture of Implenia Norway and Acciona Construction. The company Implenia Norway is a part of Implenia Group, a leading supplier of construction and civil engineering services in Switzerland. Acciona Construction is a Spanish conglomerate, specializing in the construction of railways and tunnels.
The new project of 10.3km double-track line linking Sandbukta, Moss and Såstad also includes the construction of two tunnels – Moss and Carlberg – each more than 2km long, two shorter cut-and-cover sections, a tunnel portal, a new station in Moss and a pedestrian bridge. The project is a part of Bane Nor’s InterCity plan, aimed at promoting the connections between the main cities in the country and reducing traffic congestion in the capital, Oslo, and its surrounding area. The estimated cost of the project is 650 million euros.
DEZEGA 1PVM KS self-contained self-rescuer with 60-minutes of working duration will be used during the tunnels construction. 1PVM KS is a lightweight, reliable and easy-to-use device. It takes minimum time to don in case of the emergency and makes possible to breathe in case of oxygen absence in the environment.
In contrast to competitors, DEZEGA promptly responds to the needs of its products users. That is why DEZEGA RPE is being constantly upgraded, keeping its unique characteristics and protective properties. Modifications of 1PVM KS self-rescuer are certified in Europe, South Africa, India, and Ukraine. It is used in more than 10 countries worldwide.
"DEZEGA has proven itself as a reliable safety-company in the mining sector. We are proud that our brand is associated with safety. We do not stop on achieved; we develop new markets, sectors, projects. MossIA ANS is one more in our piggy bank of DEZEGA tunneling projects. By the way, our Company already has several large-scale tunneling projects in different parts of the world: BBT (between Austria and Italy), IDRIS in Qatar, Rosenstein Tunnel in Germany, and several projects in Scandinavian countries and in Hong Kong", – said Yuriy Spivak, Business Development Director of DEZEGA.
It is planned to have further supplies of DEZEGA equipment for the project, because all phases of construction are calculated until 2025
