The facility, which will convert organic waste into biogas, will be located at Bjørkemoen in Voss. It comprises several buildings, technical infrastructure, and external tanks to accommodate the process plant, which will be delivered as a separate contract.

The project adheres to various environmental requirements, including BREEAM certification, a fossil-free construction site, and specific material usage criteria. These challenges will contribute to the development of our organization, says Gard Kvalheim, CEO of LAB Entreprenør.
