Brenner Base Tunnel: nearly 1,000 businesses at work
The businesses – suppliers and sub-suppliers whose exact number reaches 918 – are lending support to Webuild and its Isarco Scarl consortium for the work being done on the access to the future tunnel on the Italia side of the mountains.
Some 97% of them are based in Italy, 717 in the north of the country, 134 from its centre and 43 from the south. Nearly a third of their number – 272 or some 30% – come from the Trentino Alto Adige region. The next region that has the greatest number of local companies working with the consortium is Lombardy. In all, they employ more than 1,400 people who are busy lending their skills to the consortium.
Although the Brenner will be 55 kilometres long, it will become the longest of its kind when it opens when taking into account the Innsbruck part that leads to Munich, Germany, extending its length to 64 kilometres.
The Isarco consortium also includes Collini Lavori Spa and Consorzio Integra, representatives of the excellence in engineering found in Italy. In all, they employ more than 1,400 people who are busy lending their skills to the consortium.
Webuild is also involved in the Tulfes-Pfons lot at the northern end of the project on the Austrian side that will lead to Innsbruck through 37 kilometres of tunnels. It is also working on the Mules 2-3 lot that comprises 64 kilometres of tunnels and the excavation of six million cubic metres of earth.
