Veidekke ASA: To build for Hydro at Karmøy

Hydro has awarded Veidekke Entreprenør a contract to build a new electrolysis
hall, new rectifier building, new anode service building and various other
works for Hydro's new plant at Karmøy close to Haugesund. This is a pilot
project for more climate- and energy-effective production of aluminium, and
Veidekke has entered into two contracts with a combined value of around NOK
475 million excluding VAT.

Hydro's goal with the pilot project is to industrialize the world's most
climate- and energy-effective technology for aluminium electrolysis. The aim
is to reduce energy consumption by around 15 per cent per kilo of aluminium
produced in relation to the world average, and with the world's lowest CO2

"The project is an important step towards climate-friendly energy-processing
industrial production. Veidekke Entreprenør is very pleased to contribute to
these developments, and we're very proud to have been selected as contractor.
Now we're looking forward to good cooperation and look forward to getting
started with the work," says district manager Ove Nedrebø of Veidekke in

Among other things, Veidekke will build infrastructure and erect an
electrolysis hall, a rectifier building and a transformer building. An area
of 20,000 m2is to be developed. Approx 28,000 m3of concrete, 2,700 tons of
reinforcement and 3,500 tons of construction steel will be used. For Veidekke
the project will employ around 150 man years throughout the construction
period, mostly from Veidekke's department in Haugesund and from Veidekke's
mobile Special Projects construction section.

Work starts immediately and is to be completed in the second half of 2017.
