Building highways in Norway

Building highways in Norway

Everyone knows but an entrepreneur in Norway had a very clever idea… he decided to use tracked vehicles to build a highway!

The highway that separates Oslo and Lillehammer is the most used in Norway. Up to recently, after you pass Hamar, there was only one lane each way making it quite dangerous for drivers. The highway is being enlarged and the grounds around are rather soft… One of Norway’s biggest entrepreneur’s, HÆHRE AS, in charge of an important section in the project, consulted PRINOTH’s Norwegian distributor, Owren, and decided to use two PRINOTH PANTHER T14R for that off-road portion. “These PANTHER off-road trucks work so well since they carry more and move faster than other brands… we’re getting much more for our investment,” said Frank Ole Sørensen, in charge of the project.

PRINOTH is highly involved with this project. In fact, mulching was also required in the beginning phases of the project and a RAPTOR 800 and a 400 were used to clear the way before the building phases began.

The highway should be ready in two years and Owren is hoping that more T14R will be sold to finish this project. A great use of our rotating dumper!
