CBGU Design and Construction JV (CPB Contractors, Royal BAM Group NV, Ghella, UGL) has awarded Zitrón to design and build the tunnel ventilation axial fans for the CRR Project (Cross River Rail) in Australia, Brisbane. The project includes a new 10.2-km rail line from Dutton Park to Bowen Hills, that comprises 5.9 km of twin tunnels beneath the Brisbane River and CBD.
The axial fans that are going to be provided under the contract will be produced and subjected to comprehensive testing at the new production facility which is at the moment being constructed by Zitron Australia in Perth.
It is expected from this new state-of-the-art facility to be completely operational by January 2022. It is aimed to expand the fan production capacity to meet increasing demand and will enable the testing of fans to the highest standards, thereby supplying the validation of fan performance parameters requested by the customers.
Theis award reinforces Zitrón’s industry leadership and strong commitment to the Australian rail sector. Currently, Zitron fans are driving the ventilation systems supplying a safe operating environment for the users and workers of underground infrastructures in all of the Australian key cities i.e., Brisbane, Sydney, Melbourne, and Perth.
