The project in brief

The Montezemolo tunnel is a bi-directional road tunnel, completed in 1995. The tunnel is part of the A6 highway connection between Torino and Savona.

In 2018 it was decided to upgrade and refurbish the Montezemolo tunnel to fulfill the Tunnel Safety Directive 2004/54.

Why was a VID Fire-Kill solution chosen?

  • The TUNPROTEC® offered significantly lower water consumption, more user-friendly installation, and maintenance than foam firefighting monitors, which are common in Italian road tunnels.
  • TUNPROTEC® offered significantly less spatial requirements for pipes and valves.

Some specifics

  • Tunnel Length: Bi-directional tune of 1800 m
  • Tunnel Width: 8 m
  • Tunnel Height: 5.9 m
  • Installation Year: 2019-20
