Skanska builds hydroelectric power plant in Norway for SEK 424 million
Skanska will build Nya Nedre Fiskumfoss hydroelectric power plant. Skanska's customer is Nord-Trøndelag Elektrisitetsverk, NTE. The contract is worth about NOK 390 M, about SEK 424 M. The order is included in the order bookings for Skanska Nordic in the fourth quarter 2018.
Construction will begin in March 2019 and be completed in August 2022. The hydropower plant will then produce 382 GWh per year, which can supply 20,000 households with electricity. The project will have a strong environmental focus and pay close attention to the salmon both during construction and after completion.
