Norway: Aarsleff to Extend Myre Harbour

Aarsleff to Extend Myre Harbour

Per Aarsleff A/S has entered into a contract with the Norwegian Coastal Administration for an extension of the fishing port in the village of Myre in Vesterådalen in Norway.

Myre Harbour is one of the most important bases for cod fishing in the area at Lofoten.

The project is to improve the entrance to Myre Harbour and create a better wave climate in the harbour basin. Therefore, new stone breakwaters will be constructed, and the entrance will be dredged.

In addition, a number of marine pipelines and cables will be relaid, and a new area at the harbour will be constructed through backfilling with the material from the dredging work.

The project begins in November 2013 and will be completed in May 2016. The contract value amounts to DKK 135 million.
