OBO supplied cable ducts for Belgium’s longest car tunnel

OBO has supplied cable ducts and fastening systems for the renovation of Belgium’s longest car tunnel. The Annie Cordy tunnel, formerly known as the Leopold II tunnel, has a total length of 2.5 kilometers and is used by 65,000 vehicles daily. The tunnel was built in 1986 and connects the Basilica of Koekelberg with the inner ring. The renovation of the tunnel should be completed in 2022.

OBO was selected for this project, because the company was able to provide products that have a service life of up to 25 years. The company can ensure this thanks to a special FTSO galvanization and a plastic coating.

For the renovation of the tunnel, OBO supplied both MKS-Magic ® cable ducts as well as mounting material, such as Grip holders, mounting rails, US 5 profiles and US 7 profiles and wall and ceiling consoles AW30 and AW5.
