Building a railway tunnel for the future

The Spanish company Acciona and Italian Ghella have joined forces and established AGJV, an innovative company with extensive international tunnel experience.

Acciona Ghella Joint Venture is commissioned by the Norwegian government’s agency for railway services (Bane NOR) to construct the main part of the tunnel at the Follo Line (EPC TBM). The company is located at the construction site at Åsland in Oslo, and started up in 2015. The project will be finalized in 2021, and includes Scandinavia’s longest railway tunnel.

Organisation

The Follo Line contract was awarded AGJV in spring 2015. AGJV has an international work environment with people of different nationalities, mostly from Spain, Italy and Norway. About 800 people are expected to work on the project, in the most intensive periods.

AGJV has developed values that serve as a compass and drive the culture and priorities. Our values are Pride, Integrity, Excellence and Sustainability.


Management group AGJV

The management group has comprehensive international experience from the construction industry, and is led by the Project Director Fernando Vara Ortiz De La Torre.
