Contract B2 pertains to construction and civil engineering work. In the first phase of the project, the collaboration will focus on optimizing technical solutions and project execution before the parties agree on a target price for the actual construction. It is planned that the collaboration phase will take approximately one year. It is expected that a construction contract could have a value of approximately NOK 1 billion. The construction contract will only be included in the order backlog once the phase 2 contract is signed.

"AF Gruppen has extensive experience and expertise from several similar projects and contract forms. Together with NRVA, we will use this expertise to find the best solutions for the expansion of the existing treatment plant. We look forward to contributing so that the new facility achieves the desired capacity and meets the relevant requirements," says Amund Tøftum, CEO of AF Gruppen.
