Implenia builds Norway’s longest railway bridge | high focus on sustainability | fully digital design and construction with BIM | total contract volume of around CHF 190 million
New approach will see every major element of the viaduct prefabricated before being assembled on site, cutting its carbon footprint by two-thirds and simplifying construction. Crossing the flood plain of the River Thame, just outside Aylesbury, the viaduct will carry HS2 trains at speeds of up to 360km/h between London, Birmingham and the North.
Epiroc, a leading productivity and sustainability partner for the mining and infrastructure industries, has won a large order from Kamoa Copper SA for mining equipment that will be used at a large underground mine in the Democratic Republic of the Congo.

Fugro provides sustainable Site Investigations to BP's first UK Offshore Wind Farm Development
This marks BP’s entry into the UK’s offshore wind power sector and, when complete, Morgan and Mona will have a combined generating capacity of 3 GW, sufficient to power the equivalent of 3.4 million UK households with clean electricity.
Fieldwork will run from May to September 2022, with the site located approximately 30 km off the coast of North Wales and North West England in an area known for its severe currents and challenging offshore environment. Fugro will rely on their premium vessels, Fugro Synergy and the Normand Mermaid, to complete geotechnical investigations. These operations will also include the use of Fugro’s Seacalf Mk V Deepdrive system for seabed cone penetration tests (CPTs), as well as the Seadevil for vessel-based and seafloor downhole testing.
The use of this innovative equipment will ensure efficient operations and can reduce carbon emissions by up to 40 % when compared to traditional inspection methods. In addition to this, Fugro Synergy’s stable design ensures high weather operability and reduced downtime, whilst the focus on remote operations and the limited need for manual handling of equipment ensures improved operational safety.
Following the fieldwork, an extensive laboratory testing programme will be delivered by Fugro’s in-house laboratory engineers, allowing all samples to be analysed efficiently for foundation designs.
Dennis Koenen, Fugro’s Global Director Geo-data Acquisition Marine Site Characterisation, said: “With access to in-house foundation experts and state-of-the-art assets, we’re able to deliver high-quality insights as early as possible in the design process. With this Geo-data, BP and EnBW will be able to effectively guide the planning, design and installation of the Morgan and Mona wind farms – critical assets to achieving sustainability targets and delivering green electricity to the region.”
These offshore wind developments will support the UK government’s target of producing sufficient offshore wind energy to power UK homes by the end of 2030.
