Tehomet has been selected as the supplier of tramway-, lighting -and traffic light poles in a large-scale project
Raide-Jokeri is a 25 km long light rail line to be built between Helsinki’s Itäkeskus and Keilaniemi in Espoo. Construction work on the line began in 2019 and traffic on the line will begin in June 2024.
Tehomet has been selected as the supplier of tramway-, lighting -and traffic light poles in a large-scale project. Approximately 700 tramway poles are installed on the line and they operate as so-called multifunctional columns, combining roadway wire supports and roadway lighting in the same structure.
“Tehomet has strong references for carrying out projects of this size, most recently a tram line being built in Tampere. The quality of the products and customer-oriented operations strongly supported the choice of Tehomet as a supplier for the project”. Says Joonas Riikonen from NRC Group Finland, who is responsible for Electric Track Pole Purchasing.
“Traffic volumes on the Raide-Jokeri line are projected to double by 2030, with 90,000 journeys per day at that time. It is an honor to be involved in a nationally significant infrastructure project that promotes the increased use of public transport and in which environmental values are already the spearhead of operations at the planning and implementation stage. For Tehomet, the project is large in scope and will employ not only its own people but also an extensive subcontracting network for the next two years.” says Jukka Turunen Tehomet’s sales manager.
