The Board of Directors of TELT (Tunnel Euralpin Lyon-Turin) has awarded a contract for the recovery of excavation materials on the French side of the Mont Cenis tunnel (works package CO11) to a consortium encompassing Eurovia Alpes (the lead and a VINCI Construction subsidiary), Carrières du Bassin Rhônalpin, Terélian (two VINCI Construction subsidiaries), SATM, Granulats Vicat (two VICAT subsidiaries), Spie Batignolles Valérian, Spie Batignolles Malet and GIE GMM 73.

This €800 million contract covers industrial processing of the 23 million tonnes of materials excavated on the French side with a circular approach including reuse of over 50 % of the spoil on site.

The outsized complex will include three permanent storage sites, three materials processing stations, eight logistics platforms, 15 km of conveyor belts and a full train loading facility.

The consortium will also provide 78,000 hours of work and training for people on integration paths during the 120 months of works.

VINCI Construction is already involved in Lyon–Turin construction site, digging 23 km of twin-tube tunnel between Saint-Martin-de-la-Porte and Modane, preparing the construction of the Avrieux shafts near the future safety base at Modane and on the La Maddalena niches, on the Italian side of the Alps to create lateral niches to widen the tunnel and reinforce the vault to ensure safety. VINCI Construction will be able to draw on the historical experience of the VICAT Group on the TELT project.
