Svalbard Global Seed Vault: Statsbygg allies with construction engineering experts


Dr.Techn.Olav Olsen AS has been awarded the contract with Snøhetta, Instanes Polar, Erichsen & Horgen, NGI and ECT as subconsultants. The purpose is to strengthen safety in a long-term perspective. 

The background to the technical improvements is that the permafrost has not established itself as planned. The group, led by Dr. Techn. Olav Olsen AS will look at possible solutions to withstand increased water volumes due to wetter and warmer climate in Svalbard.
