follo-projectJernbaneverket announced a Joint Venture consisting of Acciona Infraestructuras S.A. and Ghella S.p.A. for the tunnel TBM contract for the Follo Line Project. This is the largest railway contract to date in Norway.
The contract covers both conventional drilling and drilling by tunnel boring machines, in addition to railway system installations and comprises construction work to be performed without proximity to railway operations.
This Joint Venture has been nominated based on an overall assessment of price and technical feasibility and performance.
The contract, which has a value of 8.7 billion NOK (EUR 1 billion), is scheduled to be signed before Easter and the work will commence immediately thereafter. The award value is within the project budget.
This is the second of four large EPC contracts for the Follo Line Project, currently the largest infrastructure project in Norway. The mega project is executed by the Norwegian National Rail Administration (NNRA) on behalf of the Ministry of Transport and Communications.
