Home> News >    Nordic Infrastructure Group awarded NOK 30.7 million contract

Rail Production AS, a subsidiary of Nordic Infrastructure Group, has been awarded a contract worth NOK 30.7 million to replace track ballast on the Gjøvik Line (Norwegian: Gjøvikbanen).

Rail Production AS will deliver the project as a subcontractor to Infranord AS. The work will be performed during the autumn of 2023.

The scope of work includes a total track rehabilitation on the Gjøvik Line. Infranord will perform the track replacement, while Rail Production AS and its cooperation partner Salcef Group will conduct ballast replacement.

Track ballast is the material which forms the trackbed upon which railroad ties are laid. It is packed between, below, and around the railway sleepers. It is used to bear the compression load of the railroad ties, rails, and rolling stock; to facilitate drainage; and keep down vegetation that can compromise the integrity of the track structure.

“This is an important contract for Rail Production, and it underlines our competitiveness and expertise as railway infrastructure contractor. We look forward to supporting Infranord on the project,” says Gjermund Sogn, managing director of Nordic Infrastructure Group.

Rail Production AS will also cooperate with two soon-to-be sister companies to deliver the project:

  1. Railway contractor Team 1435 AS will provide machines, personnel and project management as subcontractor to Rail Production AS. On 16 January 2023, Nordic Infrastructure Group announced that it had agreed to the principal terms of an agreement to acquire Team 1435 AS.
  2. Excess track ballast masses will be managed by mass handling and recycling specialist TW Gruppen AS. On 30 March 2023, Inin Group AS announced that it had signed a term sheet to acquire 70 percent of TW Gruppen AS.

“This project is a great example of how we can utilise the competence of several Inin Group companies to unlock value across the railway infrastructure value chain, from planning the work, the physical work on the railway track, to handling, recycling and re-use of the track ballast masses,” says CEO of Inin Group, Øivind Horpestad.
