The tunnel is a part of the connection between the Helsingør freeway to Østerbro and Nordhavnen in the Danish capital of Copenhagen. The tunnel consists of two tunnel tubes, a total 1250m long and 11 m wide.
In connection to the tunnel a technical room is located, containing diesel pumps for the respective watermist system and hydrants. The Copenhagen fire brigade wanted an automatic fixed firefighting solution installed in the tunnels since they did not want to send their fire fighters into the tunnel in case of fires.
Further, the tunnel is lying underneath the city with a lot of buildings on top, so the Authorities wanted something which automatically could cool the structure in case of fire.
It was the tunnel owners’ consultancy company Rambøll, who found that the patented VID Fire-Kill Model TUNPROTEC was the perfect solution for this project.
