The Dutch Government’s National Growth Fund (NGF) has allocated €100 million towards the Future-Proof Living Environment programme (€40 million of which is contingent upon the programme's results) to promote the sustainable development and transition of the construction and infrastructure sector. As a member of the programme consortium, Fugro aims to develop digital innovations and structural monitoring solutions to support the maintenance, replacement and renovation of ageing assets in the Netherlands.
BHS-Sonthofen supplies two particularly large rubber belt filters for fly ash processing in Singapore. Collectively known as Tuas Nexus, the facility is an innovative and sustainable solution to meet Singapore’s long-term solid waste management and used water treatment needs. Tuas Nexus is the integration of the National Water Agency (PUB)’s Tuas Water Reclamation Plant (Tuas WRP) and the National Environment Agency (NEA)’s Integrated Waste Management Facility (IWMF). The “FAW” procedure from system supplier AIK Technik AG is used to treat the fly ash of the waste gases produced in the waste incineration process.

- Implenia wins contract for K2D Skøyen-Vækerø
- Part of Fornebubanen, a major subway tunnelling project in Oslo (Norway)
- Win follows previous work for this project
- Order volume of around CHF 115 million for Implenia
Project K2D Skøyen-Vækerø, which is part of Fornebubanen – the largest subway tunnelling project in Norway since the 1970s – will consist of the Skøyen subway station, as well as around 1,2 km of tunneling below a heavily urbanised area and an escape tunnel (Bestum). Implenia will start its work on project K2D Skøyen-Vækerø later this year, and the project is scheduled to be completed in 2025. The order volume for Implenia is around CHF 115 million (NOK 1,3 billion).
Implenia is already building the first part of this complex tunneling project, K2A Fornebu-Lysaker, which is scheduled to be completed at the end of this year.
“This is a huge win for Implenia and our Norwegian team, building on our experience in successfully managing large and complex infrastructure projects in Norway. I thank our client, Oslo Municipality Fornebubanen, for their trust and for selecting us again. I look forward to continuing our fruitful collaboration,” says Erwin Scherer, Global Head Tunnelling of Implenia.
Implenia convinced with sustainable solutions
The client weighted soft criteria such as environmental protection and sustainability seriously in the tender (20%). Implenia scored highest among the tendering parties in this category and offered the best price as well. Implenia also presented comprehensive BIM-implementation in the tender that offered a convincing project structure and tools well suited for the project. The combination of which led to the contract win for Implenia.
“Sustainability is one of Implenia’s five corporate values and is becoming increasingly important also for infrastructure projects. The K2D Skøyen-Vækerø project is another great opportunity for us to apply our broad competences and longstanding experience in sustainability,” concludes Erwin Scherer.
