Skanska has secured a contract from the Virginia Port Authority to redevelop 72 acres of the Portsmouth Marine Terminal in Portsmouth, Virginia, US.

The contract is worth $223m (SEK2.3bn).

Skanska will include this contract in the US order bookings for Q3 2022.

This project will see almost 72 acres of the 287-acre Portsmouth Marine Terminal being redeveloped for use as an offshore wind staging port, which in turn will enhance 1,500ft of the current 3,540ft wharf.

The marine terminal redevelopment supports the Coastal Virginia Offshore Wind (CVOW) project.

CVOW is claimed to be the largest offshore wind project of its kind in the country.

Construction has started in July this year, with the project slated for completion in 2025.

Last month, Skanska secured a contract to construct a new middle school in Bulverde, Texas.

It signed the contract with Comal Independent School District (ISD).

The value of the contract is $57m (SEK550m).

This project includes construction of a new middle school complex, sports field, water detention basin, water storage tank, and associated driveways and utilities within a 40-acre land.

Comal Middle School #8, the new 15,800m2 middle school, will support 1,100 students in Comal ISD.

The school is expected to relieve neighbouring schools witnessing continued enrolment growth.

Work on the school is scheduled to start in September 2022, with completion anticipated in September next year.
