Global construction company Skanska has secured a contract from hydropower producer Eidsiva Vannkraft to construct Nedre Otta power plant in Sel and Vågå, Norway.

The new 85MW facility will generate around 315GWh annually, which is equivalent to power consumed by 15,000 households.

"Construction is scheduled to start in October this year, and the project will be completed by mid-2020."

Skanska will also construct a 12,000m tunnel and a transformer hall for the station, which will be used to connect to an existing intake dam at Eidefossen power plant. Using pre-existing infrastructure in this way, combined with the build's mountain location, will help reduce environmental impact of construction. Once complete, It will also make a large contrubution to the country's climate targets for 2020.

Construction is scheduled to start in October this year, and the project will be completed by mid-2020.

Skanska's Norway unit has a workforce of approximately 4,000 employees. Apart from major construction projects, the company is also active in development of residential and commercial properties, as well as public-private partnerships (PPP) projects.
