As part of the £2.5bn Stockholm Bypass Project, The Swedish Transport Administration is holding a ‘Supplier’s Day’ on 6th December for the following Installation of M&E work packages which will be procured shortly:
- Communications, Control and Monitoring (FSE 901)
- Power Supply, Lighting and HVAC (FSE 902)
- Tunnel Ventilation (FSE 903)
- Traffic Systems (FSE 904)
- Wastewater Systems and Fire Fighting (FSE905)
The event will take place in Stockholm where more detailed information will be given on the work packages above and the project as a whole. Attendees will have the opportunity to speak directly with procurement managers from the Swedish Transport Administration.
The M&E Installation contracts are due to run from 2017 to 2020.
The Stockholm Bypass is a 21km long, three lane motorway, of which 18km will run through a tunnel. This bypass will connect the northern and southern parts of Stockholm, and is expected to accommodate 140,000 vehicles a day in 2035.
This bypass project is part of Sweden’s £50bn infrastructure investment plan over the next ten years. Infrastructure investments are needed to cater for the rapid population growth in Stockholm, Gothenburg and Malmo. The city of Stockholm will invest £2.6bn into its metro expansion from 2016-25. Gothenburg will build an 8km double-track railway tunnel under the city for the West Link project, worth £1.7bn, starting construction in 2018. Malmo is about to upgrade parts of its Trans European Network (TEN) high-speed railway lines by lowering 5km of existing tracks into the ground for a value of £355m.
The team from the Department for International Trade in Sweden will be present at the suppliers’ day to support UK companies.
