Veidekke ASA : Veidekke signs major contract with Oslo Airport
Veidekke EntreprenÃ¸r today signed a contract with Oslo Lufthavn AS to provide
aircraft stands and technical infrastructure around the new pier at the main
airport. The value of the contract is approximately NOK 370 million excluding
There is considerable ground and foundation work to be done in connection with
the 11 new aircraft stands for North Pier at Oslo Airport. New load-bearing and
reinforcement layers must be established, as well as approximately 35,000 m(2)
new taxiways with lights and three layers of asphalt.
"Approximately 42,000 m(2) of concrete slabs will be poured, most of reinforced
concrete with a snow melting system. The technical installations cover
everything from a fuel plant with 25 hydrants to cable ducting systems and 40
concrete chambers for ground power, PCA air and water," explains Project Manager
Halvor NordbÃ¸ of Veidekke Anlegg.
Veidekke will also build a thermal energy snow storage facility of 15,200 m(2)
with asphalt troughs and a pumping station of concrete poured on site. This part
of the contract also includes technical installations (electrical, HVAC and
machinery), as well as water and sewage systems with pipes, gutters and chambers
for collecting surface water. The system for cooling for the new pier is a
pioneering project in Norway.
"This will be a challenging assignment for us, with strict safety requirements.
The work will be performed adjacent to areas with air traffic and there is also
other building and construction work close by. With good planning and close
cooperation with the client, we will succeed in this," concludes NordbÃ¸.
Building work starts in March and is due for completion in October 2016.
