Bane NOR has appointed NRC Norge AS, a company wholly owned by NRC Group ASA, to a contract for the electrification of Trønder- and Meråkerbanen.

The contract is valued at approximately NOK 760 million. The work will commence in October 2021, and the project is scheduled for completion in November 2024.

The contract includes the electrification of the railway connection between Trondheim and Stjørdal, Stavne and Leangerbanen, Hell and Storlien.
