The project K2D Skøyen–Vækerø in Oslo is part of Fornebubanen – the largest subway tunnelling project in Norway since the 1970s. It will consist of the Skøyen subway station, as well as around 1.2 km of tunnelling below a heavily urbanised area and an escape tunnel (Bestum). In March 2023, Implenia was awarded the contract for construction, and will start its work on K2D Skøyen–Vækerø later this year. The project is scheduled to be completed in 2025. The order volume for the Swiss construction company is around 113 million euros (1.3 billion Norwegian kroner).

Implenia is already building the first part of this complex tunneling project, K2A Fornebu – Lysaker, which is scheduled to be completed at the end of this year. 

Important Award Criteria: Sustainability and Environmental Protection

The client weighted soft criteria such as environmental protection and sustainability seriously in the tender (20%). Implenia scored highest among the tendering parties in this category and also presented a comprehensive BIM-implementation. In combination, these aspects contributed significantly to Implenia winning the bid.
