Read original

NCC has received a new assignment from Bybanen Utbygging, a department of Hordaland County Council in Norway, valued at nearly SEK 900 million. NCC is to construct the D14 Mindemyren project, part of the Bergen Light Rail line.

“NCC has provided a detailed description of how it is planning to implement the project, and we feel confident that NCC will deliver added value in key areas of the project. One of these is to ensure the sustainable development of the Bergen Light Rail project (Grønnere Bybaneutvikling – “greener light rail development”),” says Roger Skoglie, project manager at Bybanen Utbygging.

The D14 Mindemyren project extends from Kronstad in the north to Kristianborg in the south and consists of 1,500 meters. Work will include replacing existing infrastructure, establishing a project-design line for the Bergen Light Rail track, establishing new underground infrastructure and a new road alongside the track as well as the realignment of watercourses.

“We are proud to have been chosen as contractor for the D14 Mindemyren project on the Bergen Light Rail line. This will be NCC’s eleventh project on the light rail line since 2008 and we look forward to a close collaboration with Bybanen Utbygging,” says Kenneth Nilsson, Business Area Manager of NCC Infrastructure.  

As part of “Grønnere Bybaneutvikling”, NCC has applied for a CEEQUAL certification of the project and is aiming for a “very good” rating. The project will be completed during the second quarter of 2022.

“Our organization is very familiar with Bybanen Utbygging and its projects. This knowledge has helped us to effectively describe the work process and management of the entire project, while offering a competitive price,” says Per Jonsson, Division Manager of NCC Infrastructure in Norway.

The project will be registered in orders during the third quarter of 2019 in the NCC Infrastructure business area.
