A consortium comprising construction firm Strabag and Polish companies TKT Engineering and Elektromontaz-Poznan has won a contract from Mercedes-Benz for the construction of a new engine plant in Poland.
The contract for the construction of Mercedes-Benz’s first and largest production and assembly hall in Poland is valued at approximately €61m, in which Strabag will have a 70.1% share.
Besides the 96,000m² production hall, the consortium will also build a 1,900m² turnkey office building.
Construction is scheduled to be completed in January 2019.
The new plant is being established in Jawor in western Poland, an economically strong region, where huge investments have been made in transportation infrastructures in recent years.
Jawor is easily accessible from the S3 expressway, which was also constructed by Strabag.
Strabag CEO Thomas Birtel said: “This will be Mercedes-Benz’s first engine plant in Poland.
“Four-cylinder petrol and diesel engines will be produced here for Mercedes-Benz cars. We are very pleased that we can contribute our more than 30 years of experience in Poland.”
In January 2018, Strabag subsidiary Zublin won a contract from Sonnenhofe, a joint venture of EYEMAXX and DIE Deutsche Immobilien Entwicklungs, for the turnkey construction of 18 four- to five-storey buildings in Neu-Schonefeld in Germany.
Two underground car parks will also be constructed as part of the €85m contract.
The plot to be built upon covers 51,100m2 in the centre of Neu-Schonefeld north of the future Berlin Brandenburg Airport.
Zublin sub-division Nord is scheduled to begin work on the site in February 2018 and overall completion is likely in August 2021. Sonnenhofe was designed by Blumers Architekten of Berlin.
