The deepest under sea tunnel in the world
Last week there was a great milestone in building the undersea tunnel at Solbakk in Norway when we reached the dept. of 292 meters under the ocean surface.
This was celebrated by our staff and the Norweigian roadadministration. In the photo Gisli Thor Gudjonsson from Marti IAV Solbakk and Gunnar Eiterjord fra the Norwegian road administration are making a toast in (non alcoholic) champagne celebrating the event.
The tunnel will be finished in 2019 and will be the longest undersea tunnel in the world, 14,3 kilometres (8.9 miles) long.
