Nordic community builder Peab has been awarded a turnkey contract to construct a new drinking water reservoir in Sweden’s Lund municipality. 

Commissioned by water supplier Sydvatten, the contract is valued at Skr136m ($12.46m). 

Sydvatten produces clean drinking water for the nearly one million residents of western Skåne.  

The 35,000m² facility will be integrated with a newly laid drinking water pipeline.  

The reservoir will be 70m in diameter and 12m in wall height, ensuring both capacity and redundancy in the water supply system. 

Peab region manager Göran Wiking said: “This is an extensive and technically challenging project in which we, together with Sydvatten, will build a completely new drinking water reservoir.

Project planning commenced in April 2023, with a final inspection of the new drinking water reservoir scheduled for December 2025.  

Peab will order register the project in the second quarter of this year. 

During this month, the company also secured two other contracts in Sweden. 

Peab has been commissioned a Skr1.5bn turnkey contract by the Swedish Transport Administration to construct a section of the Västlänken Haga-Rosenlund project in Gothenburg. 

The other contract, worth Skr227m, has been awarded by Falun Municipality and entails the rebuilding of Kristine Hall, Dala Sinfonietta’s concert hall in Falun.
