The 55km-long Hordfast project is part of Norway’s planned E39 ferry-free route, which involves the construction of record-breaking fjord crossings to create a continuous road. The Hordfast section will remove a long ferry journey between the two biggest cities on the west coast of Norway, Stavanger and Bergen.

“Planning and preparation of Norway’s most extensive project, E39 Stord-Os (Hordfast), is in full swing,” said project manager Arve Tjønn Rinde. “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."

The market information day will be held in Bergen on 12 January 2023 and is aimed at contractors, suppliers, the ship-building industry and advisers.

The project team is working on the contract and procurement strategy for the project, including road, tunnel, structures, bridges, automation and power supply aspects. “We hope many people from the industry will join us on this day,” added Tjønn Rinde. “Our intention is close and good cooperation with the industry and the market.”
