Veidekke ASA: To build unique cancer centre in Aarhus

Veidekke's Danish subsidiary Hoffmann has been awarded a contract to build a
new national research and treatment centre for particle therapy in Aarhus in
Jutland. This is a turnkey contract valued at DKK 280 million, excluding VAT.

The Danish Centre for Particle Therapy (DCPT) will be the only of its kind in
Denmark, and the centre will be one of the world's leading centres for
research and the treatment of cancer by particle-based radiation therapy. The
new centre will have 9,500 m2of floor space, and it will be built in
connection with the cancer ward at Aarhus University Hospital.

The actual building will be divided into a clinical section with CT and MRI
scanners and treatment rooms, and a bunker section that will house a proton
accelerator and three linear accelerators. To prevent radiation spreading to
the surroundings, concrete walls up to four metres thick will be cast with a
very advanced solution for ventilation, cooling and waste water collection.

Construction will start in February, and the building will be ready to receive
its first patient in September 2018.
