Veidekke: to build a new drainage tunnel for Stockholm Vatten och Avfall AB

Veidekke has signed a contract with Stockholm Vatten och Avfall AB for the
construction of the new Östberga tunnel, which is part of Stockholm's future
wastewater treatment system. The execution contract has a value of approx. SEK
600 million. The new tunnel is expected to be commissioned in 2026.

The new Östberga tunnel is an environmental improvement project intended to make
Stockholm's wastewater structure more robust and able to handle larger volumes
of wastewater and precipitation.

The project comprises two main parts. First, Veidekke will construct a 2.2
kilometres mountain tunnel for surface water, with two associated service
tunnels, each of approx. 250 metres length. The mountain tunnel will be
outfitted with a cast concrete floor, most of the pipe installations, and steel
hatches to regulate water flow. Secondly, an existing control chamber will be
renovated and upgraded, and approx. 300 metres of new sea pipeline will be
lowered and mounted on seabed piles.

"We appreciate having Stockholm Vatten och Avfall's continued confidence to
build the city's future wastewater treatment system. With its requirements to
collaboration and involvement, the project is a great match for us, says Marcus
Andersson in Veidekke Anläggning Öst.
