WCN Editorial Team 16 Nov 2020 EUROPE BUILDINGS

Swedish construction company NCC has signed a SEK700m ($80.6m) contract for the construction of a new water park in Liseberg, Sweden.

The contract has been signed through the development company Liseberg Skår. It forms part of the construction company’s partnership deal with Liseberg that commenced in 2018.

As part of Liseberg’s expansion plan, work on Liseberg Grand Curiosa Hotel started almost a year ago.

The new water park, named Oceana, will be nearly 13,600m2, with a bathing area of about 6,000m2 of indoor space and 4,000m2 of outdoor space. It will comprise 14 rides, including four large water attractions, a wave pool, a lazy river and water activities for different ages.

Oceana is designed to have a maximum capacity of 1,750 people.

The water park will comprise café, shop, restaurant, dressing rooms and reception, and a bathing level, a basement level as well as a 40m tower for the four largest attractions.

NCC has planned to commence construction work on the Oceana water park immediately with completion expected in 2024.

NCC Building Sweden business area manager Henrik Landelius said: “This water park will be a fantastic addition to Gothenburg’s offering of attractions, and it’s very gratifying that we can now start construction.

“NCC’s swim centre expertise and a close partnering arrangement with Liseberg played a key role in this complex project.

“And Liseberg’s commitment to the project, despite the difficult times for the tourism industry, has been a great source of optimism for a brighter future.”
