New railway line including station for the town of Moss | Contract worth approximately NOK 3,400 million
Implenia, in a joint venture (JV) with Acciona, has won the contract to build a new railway line through the town of Moss in Norway. Implenia has technical leadership of the JV. The project includes a 10.3 km, twin-track line, some of which will run above ground. The JV’s job also includes building two tunnels, each around 2 km long (Mosse Tunnel and Carlberg Tunnel), two shorter cut-and-cover sections, a tunnel portal and a new train station. Implenia’s share of the order (55%) is worth NOK 3,400 million (around CHF 390 million).
The contract is part of the major “InterCity” project, which Norway’s state railway company Bane NOR has initiated to improve train links between towns and cities in the east of the country. “We are extremely pleased to win this order and become part of the major InterCity infrastructure project. We look forward to contributing the Group-wide knowledge and skills gained in previous successful large-scale projects,” says Audun Aaland, Implenia’s Country President Norway. Construction work begins in October 2019 and should be completed by May 2025.
