Kanonaden Entreprenad will carry out the earthworks as a construction contract. The earthwork also includes unloading and crushing of rock, which will be reused elsewhere in the project.

The client is Skeppsviken Bygg in Skövde, main contractor for the first step of the civil works execution. The expansion of the mill in Mariestad will double the annual capacity for tissue paper production from the current 75,000 tonnes to 145,000 tonnes.

“We look forward to working with Skeppsviken on this project, which is important for the entire region and its continued growth. We are convinced that Kanonaden, with its expertise and experience, will meet the expectations and deliver high-quality work,” says Bård Frydenlund, EVP Sweden with AF Gruppen.

The earthworks will start in Q1 2023, and the site is expected to be operational in the second half of 2025.
