Norway’s infrastructure manager Bane NOR has invited suppliers to find out about its 24 billion NOK (∼€2.5 billion) electrification upgrade programme.

Between 2018 and 2030, Bane NOR plans to deliver a variety of power supply and catenary upgrades across the Norwegian rail network.

More than 7 billion NOK (∼€720 million) will be spent on converter projects and a further 17 billion NOK (∼€1.76 billion) on catenary and autotransformer projects.
