The value of the contract is approximately NOK370m (£36.7m).
There is considerable ground and foundation work to be done in connection with the 11 new aircraft stands for the north pier. New load-bearing and reinforcement layers must be established, as well as approximately 35,000m2 of new taxiways with lights and three layers of asphalt.
Approximately 42,000m2 of concrete slabs will be poured, most of reinforced concrete with a snow melting system. The technical installations will cover everything from a fuel plant to cable ducting systems and concrete chambers for services such as power and water.
Veidekke will also build a thermal energy snow storage facility of 15,200m2 with asphalt troughs and a pumping station of concrete poured on site. This part of the contract also includes M&E installations 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.
Building work starts in March and is due for completion in October 2016.
