Construction in Keflavík is in full swing
The design phase in Keflavik which began in the middle of September 2020 has now been completed. The permission to commence is expected within the next few weeks.
ÍAV received early permission to carry out the earthworks of the apron to ensure that the concrete paving could commence as early in the summer as possible. ÍAV has dug and removed 120.000 cubic metres of soil and rock and imported 100.000 cubic metres of crushed aggregates since March 9th, 2021.
The 410mm deep concrete paving will be carried out by slip-forming up to 900 cubic metres per day from July 5th to ensure all concrete works (35.000 cubic metres) is complete before the onset of the next winter.
The project is a 40.000.000 USD project for the USA Government.
It contains designing and building a 70.000 square metre concrete apron, 40.000 square metre bed down area for the temporary accommodation of 500 troops, new 10.000 square metre Dangerous cargo apron and taxiway to it.
All works are expected to be completed by November 2022.
