AKUT® makes tunnels in the Czech Republic safer


Due to the increasing volume of traffic in Europe, safety in tunnels is becoming an ever more important issue. For this reason, Czech highway and tunnel operators are also investing more and more in new safety equipment to detect critical events quickly and offer drivers the highest possible level of safety.

The company Powerdynax s.r.o from Brno has been our reliable sales partner in the Czech Republic and Slovakia since 2020. In March and April 2023, Rudolf Procházka was able to acquire orders from Powerdynax for the equipment of two tunnels in the Czech Republic. AKUT® will thus make two city tunnels in the two largest cities in the Czech Republic safer. The first AKUT® system will be implemented in the Pisarky tunnel, which is operated by the Czech state highway operator ŘSD ČR. The Pisarky Tunnel is a 1,100 m long twin-tube tunnel in the city of Brno. The second project is being implemented in the Blanka tunnel complex in Prague, which is operated by the city of Prague. The Blanka tunnel complex forms part of the ring road around Prague. It consists of several successive tunnels with a total length of 5,502 m. This makes it the longest road tunnel in the Czech Republic and the longest urban tunnel in Europe.
