Adserballe & Knudsen Greenland has won a large contract with the US Air Force for the renovation of the 20.000 sq. feet supply supermarket on the Thule Air Base.
The value of the contract is estimated at 5,5 million US Dollar. Adserballe & Knudsen will construct new walls, ceiling and floors complete with insulation and establish new water pipes, sewage system etc. Approximately 15 skilled crafts men, carpenters, plumbers etc. will arrive in Thule in May when the winter is over and will work through the summer until the winter starts again to finish the job. However, Adserballe & Knudsen had to ship all materials, tools and supplies with the last ship to Thule before the winter froze the water and closed for transportation.
That operation required a bit of planning. However, with the experience of AK Greenland, it was solved in only four weeks time. Everything needed for the project left Denmark in august 2012, on board the last ship to reach Thule before the winter.
