🇸🇪 Ratos company HENT wins billion-krone contract for the new Bodø airport in Norway

June 10, 2024

Avinor has tasked HENT with building a new passenger terminal and several other operational facilities at the new Bodø airport in Norway. The contract has a ceiling of NOK 2.4 billion.

The new Bodø airport will go into operation in 2029/2030. The entire project has a cost ceiling of NOK 7.2 billion and this was the last of two major contracts that have been announced.
Three competitors submitted bids and HENT scored the highest in the evaluation process, thereby winning the contract. The contract is a turnkey partnering project based on the Norwegian “samspillsentreprise” model. This means that HENT and Avinor will work together on the details of the project to come to an agreement about the final design and cost.
“That Avinor has entrusted HENT to help with one of society’s most important buildings is further proof of the strong position that HENT has in an otherwise challenging construction market. Ratos’s construction operations primarily focus on public sector customers and properties that are important for society. Our order books are strong and we are optimistic about the future,” says Christian Johansson Gebauer, CEO of HENT and President, Business Area Construction & Services, Ratos.
“Naturally, we’re very pleased that Avinor chose us. The entire bid process was long and thorough. We used the full breadth of the company’s expertise, together with several external partners. The teamwork behind our responses to the award criteria, including price, understanding of the task and project organisation, meant that we won out over the competition. This is important recognition for all of HENT and our partners,” says Jan Jahren, CEO, HENT.
