The contract is a turn key contract and includes demolition, terracing, excavation, blasting and concrete work in connection with a new foundation for the station’s switchgear. The assignment is being carried out for Eitech Engineering AB and the end customer is Svenska Kraftnät.

The new switchgear station is important to meet the growing demand for electricity in the Uppsala and Stockholm areas. The new facility will have an area of 192,000 square meters, equivalent to 27 football fields.

"We are pleased that Kanonaden has been awarded yet another important assignment on the development of the Swedish power grid through the new Odensala station. We look forward to delivering high quality in good partnership with the client," says Bård Frydenlund, EVP Sweden for AF Gruppen.
