Lift manufacturer Kone Oyj is conducting excavation work at the Tytyri limestone mine to construct a test laboratory. Tytyri limestone mine is located in Lohja in the southern parts of Finland. The test shaft is being excavated for testing lifts intended for medium and high-rise buildings. The side dimensions of the shaft are 10 x 10 meters, and it extends from the ground level to a depth of over 100 meters. The total duration of the project is from July 2014 to October 2015, during which time an approximate total of 34,000 meters will be drilled. The contractor for the project is Lemminkäinen Infra Oy.
Arto Mattila became interested in drilling contracting some 20 years ago, when he bought equipment to drill rock on his own land. His hobby evolved into a job, and now his work is also his hobby.
