Lemminkäinen Group's Lemcon Ltd has made an agreement on the project management contract for Cargotec's new multi-assembly unit (MAU) in Poland. The client is Cargotec Poland Sp. z.o.o. The MAU is being built in the county of Stargard Szczecinski, about 50 kilometres from Szczecin in Northern Poland.

The total value of the project for Lemcon is approx. EUR 22 million, which includes design and consulting services during the preliminary phase.
