Norway, Vestlandet - no/158


Closing Date: 02.12.2016 (Tender Closed)

Open invitation to tender, deadline 02.12.2016, for  a framework agreement on a Hydrodynamics Model Experiment. The Norwegian Public Roads Administration (SVV) has been tasked with investigating technical solutions to replace all ferry services on E39 with fixed connections. Altogether there are 8 ferry services along the route, and 5 of these fjords are too broad and deep for traditional bridge and tunnel technology to be used. The framework agreement concerns all fjord crossings in the Western Region, that are part of the Ferry Free E39 project with sub-project Fjord Crossing. The project is tasked with developing concepts for safe and effective crossing of these. The concepts that have been investigated to date fall primarily into 3 categories: floating bridge on pontoons; suspension bridge with one or more spans; submerged floating tunnel. Duration of the contract is 24 months from award.
