For the first time in Norway a Chinese contractor wins bid for a major building contract. The contract relates to the building of a suspension bridge in the north of Norway, Hålogalandsbrua, located nearby the city of Narvik. The contract price is approximately NOK 755 million excl. VAT. The closest competitor’s bid amounted to NOK 774 million excl. VAT.

On the 24th of October 2013 the Norwegian Public Roads Administration (Statens vegvesen) signed a contract with the Chinese contractor Sichuan Road and Bridge Group (SRBG). The company have built several bridges in Asia, but are still relatively unknown in Europe. Signing of said contract may indicate that the company will target the North European market, including Norway.
