Sweco, a Swedish engineering consultancy company, has signed new consultant service agreements for the Odra-Vistula Flood Management project in Poland.
These represent Sweco’s third and fourth contracts under the scheme and have an aggregate value of PLN 24 million (approximately SEK 53 million or EUR 5.5 million), the company said.
The Odra-Vistula Flood Management project, co-financed by the World Bank, is designed to improve flood protection for the area’s residents.
The agreements were signed with the West Pomeranian Board for Amelioration and Water Structures in Szczecin and the Lubuski Board for Amelioration and Water Structures in Zielona Gora.
“The fact that Sweco has won two additional contracts under the Odra-Vistula Flood Management project demonstrates our expertise and leading position in flood protection. We are reinforcing our position as experts within this business area and our capacity to help ensure sustainable social and economic development in a region or country,” said Ina Brandes, President of Sweco Central Europe.
The new agreements complement the two contracts signed in November. Sweco’s main role is to support the project’s implementation units with preparatory work, design and supervision.
Sweco’s work under the project is scheduled for completion within 78 months.
