Rueil Malmaison, 14 August 2018

VINCI Energies signs a new contract for future Gothenburg Central Station in Sweden

VINCI Energies, via its subsidiary Eitech, one of the Swedish leading specialists in electrical works and engineering, has signed a contract with NCC Sverige AB regarding responsibility for all technical installations to the partial project E02 Central Station in Gothenburg. The assignment includes an underground commuter train station and about 2 kilometres of railway tunnelling, which also is a significant part of the Swedish Transport Administration's investment in the West Link.

Since autumn 2016, Eitech has worked together with NCC and the Swedish Transport Agency in a new collaboration model called Early Contractor Involvement. An assignment that included responsibility for project planning and cost optimization of the partial project E02 Central Station in Gothenburg. The new signed contract is a next step in the project, and where Eitech is responsible for coordinating all technical installations, including electrical, pipe, ventilation and control systems. The initial order value for the phase 2 contract amounts to approximately €55 million. 

Bernard Latour, Managing director of VINCI Energies Europe said: "The involvement of Eitech and particularly with this contract extension in the West Link project, validates our strategy of growth and consolidation in the Scandinavian markets as well as the interest of Eitech acquisition made end of 2017. This success is a perfect illustration of our international development strategy."

The West Link is an eight-kilometre-long double track railway, including a six-kilometre railway tunnel, underneath the city of Gothenburg. The tunnel will connect commuter rail services to routes that pass through the city, and give rise to three new stations in Gothenburg. It will increase accessibility to Gothenburg with three new underground stations in the city; at Gothenburg Central Station, Haga and Korsvägen.

VINCI Energies has become a major player in Scandinavia thanks to recent acquisitions in this dynamic area, which now constitutes one of the firm's main markets.

Rockwool Group upgrades net sales growth expectations for full-year 2018

Company announcement
for ROCKWOOL International A/S
Release no. 9 – 2018
to Nasdaq Copenhagen

13 August 2018

ROCKWOOL Group upgrades net sales growth expectations for full-year 2018

Based on preliminary reporting, ROCKWOOL Group is increasing its expected growth in net sales for 2018 from 7-10 percent in local currencies to 13-15 percent in local currencies.

Main preliminary highlights for H1 2018:

  • Sales rose to EUR 1,270 million, a 17 percent increase in local currencies
  • With a negative exchange rate effect of three percent, sales in reported figures were up 14 percent, including three percent from acquisitions 
  • EBIT increased 47 percent to EUR 161 million equal to an EBIT margin of 12.7 percent, an increase of 2.9 percentage points from last year
     

Outlook 2018:

ROCKWOOL Group has had a busy first half of 2018, with positive sales development and healthy growth in earnings. The increase in net sales has been driven by increased construction activities and strong demand for non-combustible insulation products.

Market conditions for the remaining part of the year look promising across larger European stone wool markets including Germany, Poland, France and the United Kingdom as well as in North America.

Focus is on servicing customers and delivering as promised. Additionally, and as expected, we anticipate some pressure on production capacity and increase in logistics costs over the coming quarters. We do feel confident however that our dedicated employees can live up to the demand and that the company can continue to deliver a satisfactory growth rate in the second half of the year.

Based on these assumptions, we upgrade our full year estimate for growth in net sales from 7-10 percent in local currencies to 13-15 percent in local currencies, including 2-3 percent from Flumroc. We maintain the expected EBIT margin announced in May 2018 of around 13 percent.

ROCKWOOL Group will publish its full H1 2018 results on 24 August 2018.

Acrow Bridge Provides Temporary Bridge and Lift Span to Speed Replacement of Bridge that Connects Palm Beach and West Palm Beach

Avoids need for lengthy disruption of road and water traffic at key crossing

PARSIPPANY, N.J., Aug. 13, 2018 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -- Acrow Bridge, a leading international bridge engineering and supply company, provided a temporary lift bridge over the Intracoastal Waterway and Lake Worth Lagoon that helped avoid serious disruption to both road and water traffic there. The temporary bridge on Southern Boulevard connects the Town of Palm Beach at the Mar a Lago Club and the City of West Palm Beach. It is expected to be in place until completion of the project, now estimated for early winter 2020.

When structural problems were found with the existing bascule bridge, it was determined that a new structure was needed, including a temporary lift span during the lengthy construction to accommodate heavy vehicle traffic on the roadway as well as commercial and recreational vessel travel in the waterway below.

The lift span purchased from Acrow is 51.8 meters (170 feet) long with a roadway width of 9.2 meters (30 feet) and a 5 foot wide cantilevered footwalk. It uses four 22.9 meter (75 foot) towers and a 53.3 meter (175 foot) gantry system located on top of the towers. The structure is designed for an AASHTO HL-93 loading. It was particularly important when planning the detour that the temporary structure have superior structural strength, reliability and durability as the bridge is required to be lifted every 30 minutes for vessel passage.

Scott Patterson, VP Engineering of Acrow Bridge said, “Lift bridges always pose technical challenges and there were many steps involved in the planned installation of the temporary bridge, requiring close coordination between Acrow’s mechanical, structural and electrical team members and the contractor. The lift span, towers and machinery span were all assembled from Acrow truss panel components on-site and nearby. Large cranes were then used to lift them into place. Additionally, the tower top cross-beams and mechanical systems were installed using a crane.”

Added Acrow CEO Bill Killeen, “Like many other Acrow projects, the Southern Boulevard project’s ultimate success in terms of safety and cost efficiency involves the use of a long-term detour structure that eliminates disruption to the communities around it. We are pleased to have worked closely with the Florida Department of Transportation and its contractor on this important project.”

The project contractor is Johnson Brothers, a division of Southland Holdings, and the project owner is the Florida Department of Transportation. The design engineer is AECOM Technical Services of Tampa.

Acrow Bridge has been serving the transportation and construction industries for more than 60 years with a full line of modular steel bridging solutions for vehicle, rail, military and pedestrian use. Acrow’s extensive international presence includes its leadership in the development and implementation of bridge infrastructure projects in over 80 countries, covering Africa, Asia, the Americas, Europe and the Middle East.
