The Norwegian Public Roads Administration is inviting contractors, suppliers, and advisers to a Market Information Day in Bergen on 12th January 2023 for the E39 Stord – Os (Hordfast) project, which includes the construction of up to 35km of tunnel.
“Planning and preparation of Norway’s most extensive project E39 Stord-Os (Hordfast) is in full swing. In this process we want to have a close dialogue with the industry about the contract and procurement strategy to ensure predictability and early involvement, says project manager Arve Tjønn Rinde.
Hordfast is considered complementary to the ongoing Rogfast-project and will remove one long ferry journey between the two biggest west coast cities of Norway, Stavanger and Bergen.
The market day will be a physical all-day meeting in Bergen on 12th January, continuing from the information given at the previous market day, in autumn-21
The project is working on the contract and procurement strategy for the project in road, tunnel, structures, bridges, automation (SRO) and electricity.
At 55km, the E39 Stord-Os project is one of the most extensive road projects in Norwegian history.
The road will connect the Stord municipality with Os in the Bjørnafjorden municipality with a series of bridges and tunnels. The project will include 13-17km of twin tunnels, depending on the choice of solution in the southern part of the Tysnes municipality, totalling 35km of tunnel. The longest tunnel will be a 7.7km long undersea tunnel in the Bjørnafjorden municipality.
Aside from the tunnelling, the projects main construction works will include a 5.5km long floating bridge crossing Bjørnafjorden and a 1.7km long suspension bridge crossing Langenuen.
Other notable works are two four-lane cantilever bridges between 300 – 400m length, two two-lane 210m long viaducts, and eight viaducts between 50 and 100m length. The total amount of standard four lane road will be between 30 and 34km depending on the choice of solution in the southern part of Tysnes municipality.
