Protective measures of equipment sensitive to vibrations February-March 2022
A tunnel for the metro ‘Yellow Line’ to Arenastaden is presently under construction, including four (4) entrances to the station Hagastaden, out of which one will be just outside the KI Campus Solna main gate. The tunnel itself will run deep below Solnavägen. The yellow line is expected to take 6-7 years to finalize.
The ongoing blasts to prepare for the tunnel are now approximately 150 meters from Biomedicum, in the direction of Torsplan and blasts will come closer as the tunnel construction is advancing. Blasts in the vicinity of Biomedicum may affect equipment that is sensitive to vibrations. Measures will be taken to protect the equipment in our building. The company FORCIT has been assigned by the Stockholm County Council to implement such protective measures.
All research group leaders at Biomedicum will receive an e-mail during this week from their respective Head of Administration with further information regarding how the work to protect the equipment is proceeding and what information FORCIT need to carry out their assignment.
