AF Gruppen will build a 3.8 km tunnel and upgrade approx. 10 km of roads from Eiriksdal power station to Eringsdal for Statkraft Energy AS. The tunnel and road system will provide access to the hydro-electric reservoirs in the rock, and used for the forthcoming upgrade works on dams. The access tunnel will replace existing tram line used for access to date for inspections and maintenance in the mountains east of Høyanger.

Work starts in September 2018 and will be completed in March 2021.

The contract is worth about NOK 200 million.

“AF Gruppen is delighted to enter into a new agreement with Statkraft Energi. We look forward to further cooperation with common focus on effective implementation whilst safeguarding health, safety and the environment," says Morten Grongstad, CEO of AF Gruppen.
