About Amatic AG
Amatic AG specialises in industrial controls for such applications as tunnel operation and safety systems. The company is owner-operated, has its registered office in Inwil (Lucerne Canton) and has branch locations in Oftringen and Jiloviste, Czech Republic. The firm has 28 employees, and its customers include the Swiss federal government (ASTRA, SBB), cantonal and municipal governments and general contractors.
Gotthard Base Tunnel:
The company Amatic from central Switzerland ensures safety, also in the event of fire
When the Gotthard Base Tunnel commences operations on 1 June 2016 as part of the NRLA programme, highly specific controls and control systems made by Amatic (reg. ofc. in Inwil, LU) will help to keep the tunnel safe and climate-optimised. A specialist in industrial controls, the company encountered extraordinary conditions working on the civil engineering project of the century.
Gigantic halls deep under the mountain, temperatures up to 40° C and a commute either 800 meters down from Sedrun or 25 km into the mountain from Erstfeld. Even for Amatic's most experienced employees, the Gotthard Base Tunnel has been an adventurous place to work.
For the Gotthard Base Tunnel, Amatic carried out the planning and installation of the controls and lines for the electrical, ventilation and plumbing systems. The company, based in the municipality of Inwil, has ensured that optimal climate conditions for man and machine are maintained, even in the hottest areas under the mountain: inside shelter facilities, control centres and technical installations. In case of fire, Amatic controls will prevent the fire from spreading.
Some 50 engineers, computer technicians and administrative personnel have invested 50,000 hours of work in the project over a four-year period. Completion is scheduled for late May 2016. The principal was ARGE Equitec Gotthard ETG.
The reasons why Amatic landed the project contract include the firm’s specific know-how in the area of operating and safety systems and its extensive experience, for example with the Gotthard Road Tunnel, the Seelisberg Tunnel, the two Lucerne tunnels Schlund and Spier and the Zurich Western Bypass.
As an innovative engineering and software firm, we develop, plan and install customised automation solutions for operational and safety systems, sewage and water supply systems, as well as industrial automation applications.
The chief priorities for our solutions are ease of maintenance, simple operation and handling, cost effectiveness, retention of value and reliability over the entire lifecycle.
Having successfully completed some 2,000 projects in what will soon be 20 years, we are able to draw upon a wealth of expertise to keep it rolling.CompetenciesMarket segments
