Copenhagen Cityringen

The project consists of the design and construction of the new metro loop in the centre of Copenhagen, which entails two tunnels of 16 km each, 17 stations and five monitoring shafts. The contract is worth approximately €2,050 million, including riders and price revisions. During the period, work went ahead according to schedule with continuation of the electromechanical works and architectural finishings. The Group’s share of the project is 100%.

During the period and in 2015, the Group incurred costs for activities not originally provided for in the contract, mainly to strengthen the structures requested by the customer. Requests for additional considerations to cover these activities have been formalised and are under negotiation. Measurement of contract work in progress has considered these costs to the extent that the Group deems recovery is probable, also based on its legal advisors’ opinion.

Outlook for 2016

The Group has presented bids for some important tenders in the transport sector. The project for the southbound extension of the metro line for Copenhagen is at the pre-qualification stage.
