Strukton wins Västra Götaland Gothenburg maintenance contract

Strukton Rail has won the assignment for daily maintenance in the Västra Götaland Gothenburg (VGG) contract and looks forward to continuing managing the maintenance on the Gothenburg rail. “It is very good and gratifying that we manage to re-win this important contract”, says Lars Schyllander, head of Strukton’s business unit Maintenance in Sweden.

A good team effort together with the results from our current contract, that has brought stability and proficiency to the maintenance, has led to us re-winning this contract once again.

Planning for another five to seven years in Gothenburg

This maintenance contract is based on the standard Swedish Design & Built conditions ABT 06 and includes preventive and corrective maintenance. The client is Trafikverket and the contract amount is 600 million SEK (58 million EUR). The contract period is 5 year + 2 year as option. The option can be used either 2 years directly or 1 year at a time. The contract starts on September 1st 2022.

The new VGG-contract will not contain the same content as the current one. The reason is that Trafikverket will move outer rail parts to other contracts. Therefore, the contract has now been cut up in three main parts:

  • Part 1 contains the rail parts 601, 602 and 603. These rail parts are included during the entire contract.
  • Part 2 contain the rail parts 625 and 634 that gets removed from the VGG contract 2023-08-31.
  • Part 3 contain rail part 626 that gets removed from the VGG contract 2023-03-32.

Building a strong district West in Sweden

Us winning the VGG contract means that our number of maintenance contracts in Sweden continues to be at a stable and high level.
“It was with joy we received the message that Trafikverket continues to show us confidence with re-awarding us this contract. Together we develop a sustainable railway for a sustainable Sweden”, says CEO Johan Oscarsson.

“It is very important for Strukton and district west that we have re-won the VGG contract. Now we can focus on building a strong district west from the central point in Gothenburg. With this strategically important contract we secure our presence in Gothenburg and western Sweden for a long time to come, with all the positive effects and possibilities it brings”, says Peter Adamiec, head of district west.
