After the signing. Richard Graham and Gianni Porta of Impregilo, and Friðrik Sophusson managing director of Landsvirkjun, have a look at the contract documents.
Negotiations were taken up with Impregilo in December when it became clear that the construction company had the lowest bids for both the dam and the headrace tunnel. These negotiations were concluded some time ago but the contracts were not signed until now as the power contract between Landsvirkjun and Alcoa had not been finalised.
Impregilo plans to commence work in East Iceland at the start of April.
