New hydro plant for Norway

3 July 2018

Construction firm YIT and Norwegian power company Sunnfjord Energi AS are to build a new hydropower plant in the Sogn and Fjordane County in Western Norway.

Under a €32 million contract, the firms will begin work on the Jølstra plant in July 2018, with completion scheduled for December 2020. The contract covers the construction of a power plant, including water intake, power station and approximately 7km of tunnel.

“We have a strong position in infrastructure construction solutions and services in the Nordic and Baltic countries,” commented Harri Kailasalo, Executive Vice President of YIT’s Infrastructure projects segment. “This contract is a good example of projects where our special expertise in energy sector construction plays a crucial role.”

YIT has previously been involved in a similar hydropower plant in Norway, and has also built power plants and been involved in foundation engineering or renovation work in Sweden and in Finland.
