Eitech, a Swedish subsidiary and electrical installation specialist of VINCI Energies, has won a €50m contract to provide all technical installations for the Korsvägen station project in Gothenburg, Sweden.

Eitech signed the contract in collaboration with its consortium partners, Swedish construction company NCC Sverige and Wayss & Freytag Ingeniurbau.

The contract includes an underground commuter train station and almost 3.2km of line, as well as a new underground station in central Gothenburg.

The scope of the Korsvägen station contract for Eitech’s part includes complete responsibility for the execution of all technical installations and the temporary installations for power and lighting of the new station.

Vinci Energies Europe West general manager Julio de Almeida said: “Eitech has nearly 20 years of experience in collaboration and execution of large and complex installation projects.

“Several projects have already been carried out together with both NCC and the Swedish Transport Administration. This new success is a perfect illustration of our long-term strategy for both our local and global brands in the Scandinavian markets.”

The Korsvägen section is approximately 3.2km-long and stretches from Landala to Örgryte/Jakobsdal through Korsvägen before connecting with the existing track in Almedal.

Vinci Energies said that the lengths include a rail tunnel, as well as a parallel service and rescue tunnel.

Vinci Energies operates as a subsidiary of French concessions and construction company Vinci

In August last year, Vinci Energies signed a €55m contract with NCC Sverige to carry out all technical installations for the upcoming E02 Central Station in Gothenburg, Sweden.
