The facility will be built on 28 hectares of land, with a building area approaching 80,000 square metres, including three automated racked pallet storage systems and large areas for lorries and railway tracks.

The earthwork includes the removal of 280,000 cubic metres of rock, which will be used in the project. The blasting work will be performed by Kanonaden’s subsidiary, Bergbolaget.

The developer is Tommy Allström Byggproduktion AB.

“The contract awarded to Kanonaden is great proof of the success resulting from the company’s strategy of specialising in logistics facilities,” says Bård Frydenlund, EVP of the Sweden Business Area at AF Gruppen.

With the Eskilstuna contract, Kanonaden is now contributing to the construction of the two largest logistics centres in the Mälaren Valley. The company is already performing the earthwork and construction work for Dagab’s new logistics centre outside of Stockholm.
