Sundsvall, Sweden

As vaccination rates increase, it is once more possible to start meeting up again out at the production plants, of course in accordance with official recommendations. On one of the hottest days of the summer, Fredrik Andersson, the person responsible for Nynas sales of bitumen in Northern Sweden, visited Skanska’s asphalt plant in Sundsvall. There he met Production Manager Viktor Petersson to discuss future deliveries, safety when handling bitumen and ongoing road projects.

The plant, which was officially opened in 2016, is one of the biggest in Northern Sweden with a production capacity of 240 tonnes per hour and the facility to manufacture both low-temperature asphalt and mixes that contains a significant proportion of reclaimed asphalt. This autumn, Nynas will be supplying the plant with bitumen to be used in the production of asphalt for various Skanska projects in the region.
