VINCI Energies gains a new contract for future Gothenburg Korsvägen Station

VINCI Energies, via its subsidiary Eitech, a Swedish leading specialist within electrical installation, has signed a contract with the consortium NCC Sverige AB and Wayss & Freytag Ingeniurbau AG regarding the execution for all technical installations in project Station Korsvägen, in Gothenburg.

The assignment includes an underground commuter train station and about 3.2 kilometres where the majority goes in through a tunnel and a new underground station in central Gothenburg.

For Eitech's part, the scope in Station Korsvägen is nearly identical to the responsibility the company already has in the partial project Station Centralen and which was received in August 2018. The new contract includes complete responsibility for the execution of all technical installations and also the temporary installations for construction power and lighting of the new station. The order value amounts to approximately €50 million.

Julio de Almeida, General Manager of VINCI Energies Europe West said: “Eitech has nearly 20 years of experience in collaboration and execution of large and complex installation projects. Several projects have already been carried out together with both NCC and the Swedish Transport Administration. This new success is a perfect illustration of our long-term strategy for both our local and global brands in the Scandinavian markets.”

The Korsvägen section is around 3.2 kilometres long and runs from Landala, via Korsvägen and Örgryte/Jakobsdal before connecting with the existing track in Almedal. The lengths of rock tunnel comprise a rail tunnel and a parallel service and rescue tunnel. Three lengths of the tunnel running through clay and earth will have a concrete structure. A new underground station with three exits will be built at Korsvägen.

VINCI Energies has become a major player in Scandinavia thanks to recent acquisitions in this dynamic area, which now constitutes one of the firm's main markets.
