On June 16, 1999, the old ship, MS Finnmark, landed at the Hurtigruten Museum at Stokmarknes. Peab will build the ship, which will form the basis for the new Hurtigruten Museum.

"A wonderful project for us! We have worked with the offer for a long time and are very pleased that the developer chose us as an entrepreneur. We look forward to getting started," says Gro Skaar Knutsen, regional manager of Peab.

The protection building over MS Finnmark will be approximately 3600 square meters large. Most of the building will be in glass and steel.

"We will restore and build on the existing building stock in connection with the building of the ship, so that the entire Hurtigruten museum will be new and modern," says Gro Skaar Knutsen.

The assignment is a turnkey contract with construction start in April 2019 and occupancy is calculated by April 2020.

The project was notified in the fourth quarter of 2018.
