Scandinavian crane and transport specialist Havator Group has been contracted by Betongmästarna i Sverige for the installation of concrete structures on the Stockholmsarena construction project in Sweden.

Havator's contract, worth around Euro 6 million, includes the installation of the frame elements, the roof elements, the girders, the arch structures and the outer wall elements of the new arena. Around 20,000 elements of various types will be installed.

"We have a long history of co-operation with Betongmästarna i Sverige, and we are very pleased that they have chosen us as their installation partner for this demanding project. In addition to the installation work, installation cranes are part of our delivery scope", said Jussi Yli-Niemi, Havator Group CEO.

Stockholmsarena is a sports and event centre with a seating capacity of 30,000. The new arena will be next to Globen, the existing national indoor arena. The developer is the City of Stockholm via SGA Fastigheter, a city-owned company. Working for PEAB Sverige, Betongmästarna i Sverige will deliver the frame structures for Stockholmsarena. Work starts in November 2010.
