Norway awards Ferry Berths Rebuilding Contract worth $34m

 

The Norwegian Public Roads Administration, Statens vegvesen, has announced the signing of a contract with the construction and civil engineering company Peab on 14th July 2021, according to FleetMon.

It stated: “The Norwegian Public Roads Administration, Statens vegvesen, recently announced the signing of a contract with the construction and civil engineering company Peab on 14th July, for the rebuilding and construction of four ferry berths in the Northern Nordland, Norway to facilitate zero or low emission ferry movements in the region.

“The contract worth $34.27 million includes rebuilding three ferry berths at Bognes, Drag, and Skarberget by Peab across the region, along with the construction of a new ferry docking terminal in Kjøpsvik.

“The contract also includes ramping up of various infrastructures simultaneously with the rebuilding of the ferry berths. The project plans the deployment of at least four charging stations for electric ferries at various sites as a major push and encouragement to electric ferry boats in the region. This aims to make port operations largely eco-friendly by cutting down on emission rates through these activities.

“In addition to the charging points contract includes establishing power lines to support more environmentally sustainable future shipping and port operations at Drag. The building of service stations close to these docking points to facilitate easier maintenance and repair of ferry boats at all locations is also planned.”
