Mosinzhproekt Engineering Holding begins to expand to international metro construction markets, Yuri Kravtsov, General Director of Mosinzhproekt, said at the 10th Moscow Urban Forum. The company is the operator of the Moscow metro development programme and the Exclusive Partner of MUF 2021.

According to the company’s CEO, over the years of work Mosinzhproekt specialists have acquired unique experience in underground construction in a densely populated megacity with complex geology. These competencies place the company on a par with the world’s leading engineering companies in tunneling construction technologies.

“The participation of Mosinzhproekt in foreign metro development projects together with engineering partners who have proven themselves in the world markets will generate a synergy for further technological development of the company and an increase in its operational performance,” Yuri Kravtsov said.

Over the past ten years, more than 105 kilometres of metro lines, 51 metro stations and 11 train maintenance facilities have been built and commissioned in Moscow with the participation of Mosinzhproekt Engineering Holding.
