Skanska has signed a contract with the Norwegian Road Authority (NPRA) to build the new E18 highway between Fornebukrysset and Strand outside Oslo, Norway. The contract is worth NOK 4.6 billion, about SEK 4.6 billion, which will be included in the Nordic order bookings for the second quarter 2023.
The contract consists of the design and building of a total of 2.3 kilometers of new 2x3 lanes E18 motorway between Fornebukrysset and Strand, a new main uninterrupted cycle route on the entire section and a new local access road to Fornebu. Furthermore, the contract includes building of 660 meters of the Høvik Tunnel and 440 meters of the Gjønnes Tunnel. The contract also includes changes to the adjacent local road systems with pedestrian and cycle paths. The project will be environmentally certified according to BREEAM Infrastructure – level Excellent.
Construction is expected to begin during the summer of 2023 and the project will be completed early 2030.
The contract is part of the major project E18 Western Corridor, which consists of a new main highway system between Lysaker in Bærum and Drengsrud in Asker municipality. The new E18 will replace one of Norway’s busiest road sections, today characterized by traffic problems, poor accessibility for public transportation and extensive noise and air pollution.
Two of the largest mining companies in the world join forces with the objective of exchanging information in areas of mutual interest, such as the electrification of mining activities, the supply of desalinated water, the stability and monitoring of tailings deposits, and the development of technologies for the decarbonisation of processes, among others.
With the acquisition of one of the leading companies for air supported belt conveyors, The Hendrik Group Inc., the Beumer Group is expanding its portfolio in the field of bulk material transport. In particular, the handling of alternative fuels and raw materials (AFR) confirms Beumer's commitment towards sustainability and is at the same time fully complementary to the current technologies offering ensuring an even broader customer benefit. The technology also generates additional potential in the field of bulk material handling of sensitive materials when it comes to preventing hazardous substances from being released into the environment.

Wired rock-pressure measuring systems are not rated as suitable for the long-term monitoring of abandoned salt mines as they are expensive, technically complex and lacking in functional reliability....
Dams and reservoirs are suffering from increasing siltation as a result of sediment deposition. This poses a threat to drinking water supplies, flood defences and flora and fauna in the downstream reaches and also compromises hydroelectric power generation systems. An efficient and sustainable sediment management regime is therefore urgently needed....
