Lindab has been selected to supply ventilation equipment for a defence system to protect Venice from flooding
MOSE is a system for defending Venice from high waters. Lindab will provide the ducts and ventilation system for the "Bocca di Lido Treporti" barrier.
MOSE, which protects Venice and its lagoon from high waters, is at an advanced stage of construction.This hi-tech project is part of an important physical and environmental recovery plan for the entire lagoon. The complex measures for the protection of the lagoon are being undertaken by the Consorzio Venezia Nuova on behalf of the Italian State (Ministry of Infrastructure and Transport - Venice Water Authority).
Lindab has been selected to supply special fire-proof ventilation ducts and fittings in stainless steel. The order value exceeds SEK 10 m and the deliveries will be carried out in two phases. The first and largest part will be delivered before the end of the first quarter 2012. The next phase will be carried out once the underwater barrier has been constructed, expected to start in September 2012.
Lindab's Business Area Manager, Ventilation, Nils-Johan Andersson comments:
"We are very pleased to be involved in this is extraordinary project. Ventilation represents only a small part, yet every detail must be made to the very highest standards. Lindab has a wealth of experience from complex projects, and we were able to demonstrate our competence in optimising the ventilation system as well as contributing to the implementation of rigorous fire tests."
