“We’re looking forward to extending the good partnership we already have with Sarpsborg municipality from the contract with the preparatory works at the treatment plant. This new contract will be carried out in a partnership between Veidekke’s Leif Grimsrud and Veidekke Bygg Østfold Follo departments,” says Magnar Kristiansen, general manager of Leif Grimsrud AS.

The Alvim treatment plant will be expanded and upgraded to meet increasingly strict treatment requirements and to maintain the capacity-related increase in population and industry development in Sarpsborg. The project involves the construction of a new biotreatment plant with nitrogen treatment, the construction of a new administration building and a garage, as well as the rehabilitation of existing buildings.

"We are very pleased to be chosen to carry out this assignment. We appreciate Sarpsborg municipality’s confidence in us and are looking forward to the start-up and implementation of the project,” says general manager Bård Degnes of Veidekke Bygg Østfold Follo.

The commissioning of the construction and foundation works is planned for June 2024 with completion scheduled for December 2026. Read more about the project here.
