4th of April 2018 the VID Fire-Kill brand TUNPROTEC® and its Turkish distributor, REN Muhendislik, signed a contract for an active fixed firefighting system (Low Pressure Watermist) - the first of its kind in Turkey - protecting the Kanuni Road Tunnel in Turkey.
TUNPROTEC® Infrastructure Sales Manager, Johnny Jessen, is looking forward to entering the Turkish tunnel market: ”We are very pleased to conclude this first order for a fixed firefighting system in Turkey to improve the safety level on Turkey road tunnels and as part of Turkey’s very ambitious infrastructure 2021 development scheme. And with the dedication and high-level skills of our distributor, REN Muhendislik, I am convinced that this is just the beginning when it comes to joint tunnel projects”.
