Eiffage’s subsidiary Eiffage G6nie Civil has been awarded by Nye Veier3, a company owned by the Norwegian Ministry of Transport, the contract for the construction of the central section, Parcel 2 between Lanner and Kjorholt, on a stretch of the E18 motorway that will connect the towns of Langangen and Rugtvedt. The amount of the contract is EUR 370 million. This additional design and build phase includes the construction of 10 kilometres of 2x2 lane motorway, largely underground with the excavation of two twin-tube tunnels spanning a total of 7.6 kilometres: the Bjonnas tunnel (2.5 kilometres) and the Grenland tunnel (5.1 kilometres). The contract follows an 18-month phase of engineering studies carried out exclusively with Nye Veier3 to propose an optimised project both from an environmental point of view in order to limit its carbon footprint, and in terms of construction so as to reduce as much as possible the inconvenience caused to the local residents in this heavily residential area. Eiffage had previously won in December 2020, the contract for Parcel 1 (Langangen / Lanner) and Parcel 3 (Kjorholt / Rugtvedt) of this section of the E18 motorway. The Group’s total order intake for this project is therefore now worth over EUR 580 million.
