Oslo order is Norcem's biggest in Norway to date
08 April 2016

Norcem, HeidelbergCement’s Norwegian subsidiary, and the Spanish-Italian contractor consortium Acciona Ghella JV (AGJV) have signed an agreement for the cement supplies to the Follo Line Project in Oslo. The supply of 280,000t of cement over a three-year period is Norcem’s largest contract ever. The cement supplies will start later in April.

“This is a milestone for HeidelbergCement in Norway and will put great demands on both production and logistics,” said Dr Bernd Scheifele chairman of the managing board. “Our subsidiary Norcem made the best offer and it has the necessary production capacities and logistics to supply the required volumes to this outstanding project in Norway.”

The Follo Line Project is currently the largest transport project in Norway and includes the country’s longest (20km) double-track railway tunnel. The new railway track runs between Oslo Central Station and the new station in the municipality of Ski in the Follo district, south of Oslo. It will enable a 50 per cent reduction in journey time between Oslo and Ski. The project is scheduled to be finalised at the end of 2021.
